Welcome to our class blog! Here, we will showcase what we are learning together on Sunday mornings. We'll bring you photos, examples of work, videos, and much more. We hope you'll actively participate in our blog by commenting.
We had a great first week of school! It was so wonderful meeting and getting to know all your children. The energy was high both within the grade 2/3 class and the entire school. Thanks to all the parents who were a part of our first day! We did a lot of getting-to-know-you activities and learning about the classroom and the school. Below, kids are decorating images of class rules that will help us work together, as part of a kehillah (community), to learn and have fun.
In addition, since Rosh Hashana just passed and Yom Kippur is coming, we learned about the importance of both holidays. Specifically, we read the book called "The Hardest Word" by Jacqueline Jules. This story taught us that sometimes it can be difficult to say sorry, but that it is one of the most important things we can do in order to make up for our mistakes. On Yom Kippur we think about how we can say sorry to people we have wronged, and how we can do a better job next time. In the words of Max, "you have to look at the person and say you're sorry like you really mean it!".
