The Third Grade class recently had an excellent opportunity to enjoy an art class with Morah Debby Weintraub. The girls learned to express themselves through colors and patterns and created lovely masterpieces. Many teachers observed a calming effect on the girls, and their learning became more focused.
Hebrew Reading is an essential foundation for our students' Limudei Kodesh, so we have many programs to encourage the students to read regularly. Our Third Graders earn dollars through the "Kriah Kash" program by practicing their Hebrew reading every day. Our Fourth Graders earn punches on their Kartis Kriah Cards each time they read. The “Kriah Canteen” opened for the first time last week, and the girls are enjoying the rewards of their hard work.
Our Fourth Grade reading groups are busy learning about sentence structure. The girls learned the rules of subjects and predicates and how to identify groups of words as fragments. The girls are enjoying practicing these skills through the many creative games their teachers have prepared.
While the weather is nice, we continue to enjoy going outside and having fun while social distancing during our recess period. Mrs. Rachell Tajerstein, our elementary guidance counselor, arranged for umbrellas to be purchased, allowing the girls to walk around the campus, rain or shine!
Many classes recently held various mock elections, including a mock vote for government officials. After learning about the electoral college and election process, Mrs. Ashiras Mirsky's classes held an election in which the girls had the opportunity to vote for President. Everyone received a special sticker and was entered into a raffle with prizes for memorizing the United States' first five presidents.
