Pre – K
We are busy learning “The Family” ( abba- father, eema – mother, saba – grandfather, safta – grandmother, ach – brother, achot
– sister, tinok – baby). We also dress “people” with the clothes that we learned before such as; chultza – shirt, chatza’eet – skirt.
The students sing family songs and enjoy talking about their family using the pictures they brought from home.
Mrs. Limor Auslander
In Kindergarten we are about to complete the letter Kaf- The words we studied for the letter were: Kova – hat, kfafot – mittens,
keesay – chair, kadur – ball, kotel.
We are working on the colors: kesef – silver, kachol – blue, katom – orange.
The students enjoyed a game; throwing a kadur katom in a kachol basket.
We also sang songs that started with the letter Kaf- “Koshee kelev kat” and “ lakova sheleey shalosh pinot”. They made a hat
as an art project.

3rd Grade
Mazal tov, We just finished our first safa book for this year. We are working on an enrichment Tal-Am booklet that reviews
vocabulary from the book.
Next week we will start a new book.
I am giving the students reading books from time to time so they can practice reading Hebrew at home.
It is a pleasure to see how the students are mastering their vocabulary and are able to speak Hebrew in class.
Shabbat Shalom
