Dear Grade 5,
I am SO VERY PROUD of all your efforts and hard work so far! I cannot believe how amazing and resilient you have been with all these huge changes! Remember to stay calm, stay motivated, and do what you can to make every day a happy one. 😊
For this week, I want to make sure that you are doing the following things:
-Creating a DAILY SCHEDULE (to organize your day and keep you on track!)
-Attending ZOOM MEETINGS on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 11:30. (To check in and see each other! Links will be sent via Seesaw)
-Choosing a VARIETY of activities each day. (Some should be online, but some should be with pen and paper, experiments, reading, PE, art, etc. DO NOT stay online all day!)
-Completing MOST of the choice board activities this week. (Please DO NOT only choose one to do over and over… you shouldn’t come back to an activity a second time unless you have completed most other activities!)
-Don’t forget to hand in by EMAIL or SEESAW if instructed to on the choice board. (There are a few items on each board I am looking for this week. Be sure to submit them!! I also recommended sending a few photos to Stacey so she can share them on the RJDS Facebook page if you are comfortable with that! 😊)
–Email Morah Tammy to share what you have been doing in PE!
If you have any questions at all, ask them anytime via Seesaw! I try to check it very often. Have the most amazing week and I will see you on Zoom!
Dear grades 5-7’s Parents,
I hope this email finds you well and in good health.
Thank you to all those who joint us last week for the virtual Challah bake. I really enjoyed seeing all of you and loved seeing the beautiful Challahs that came out.
I hope that the first week of learning from home went well despite being a new, and certainly challenging situation for everyone. I was really happy to get pictures, assignments and even videos from the students.
This week, please G-d, our groups will meet on Monday at 2:30 PM via zoom. I look forward to hearing from all the students about how the first week went, to go over the ‘Choice Board’ and plan the upcoming week.
I will send the link for Zoom the night before, by email.
Expectation for this week:
To open the Hebrew choice board and check out the assignments for this week:
1 – Starting their day with 15 minutes of the morning prayer, as we do in class.
Every day is another entry into our weekly raffle for a $20 Amazon giftcard.
Mazal tov to Hila (grade 3) for winning last week’s raffle!
2 – At least 10 minutes (daily) of Hebrew reading. Any Hebrew text qualifies, but I’ve included some links in the Choice Board for your convenience.
3 – Pick a daily Hebrew assignment to do. Please email [email protected] one written assignment and one speaking assignment by Thursday night.
4 – Attend the zoom meeting on Monday. If you can’t make it, please let me know in advance.
Thank you and looking forwards to seeing all the students on Monday!
All the best,
