We were honored to have Mr. Jeff Zuckerman come and blow shofar for our first graders. The girls got to hear all of the sounds of the shofar that their fathers hear in shul each morning of Chodesh Elul.
At our opening assembly, the lesson of ayin tova was made so meaning- ful for the girls. They all listened to a recording of the award winning children’s book, “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very
Bad Day”. From their participation, it was very obvious that the story was something the girls were able to relate to. They walked away with the lesson that the kind of day we have, all de- pends on our perspective and how helpful it is to have ayin tova.
The girls are already familiar with the words of this year’s theme song. It's all thanks to our sixth graders who did a fantastic job presenting.
Miss Libersohn and Miss Levin’s third grade did a hands on demonstration of edible art to help the girls visualize the difference between Yaakov and Eisav.
Mrs. Tietjen’s 6th graders practice geography and puz-zle skills by putting the world (puzzle) back together again!
First graders have their first spelling ‘test’, but it doesn’t look like it was intimidating. Using their desk- tops, fingers and some shaving cream, the girls prac- ticed the phonics rules they learned this week. It wonderful to see the smiles alongside the learning!
