We have had a wonderful week here at Maayan. Students are learning and growing. As we start the push toward the end of the year, students are building momentum and are using a variety of means to show off what they have learned throughout the year.
In Tipot, students made mountains and decorated them for the parsha of the week and had imaginary play together.
In Geshem, students sang the Challah song during their Shabbat party.
In Mayim, students used their imaginary play time to practice problem solving social issues. They also began studying butterflies and their life cycle.
In Mrs. Shenk’s class, students worked in centers to practice writing letters and match words to pictures.
In Mrs. Gore’s class, students spent time identifying verbs and reading books individually and together.
In Mrs. Kalter’s class, students talked about Hashem showed sensitivity to Avraham, and how we can use that principle to show sensitivity to others.
In Mrs. Bagley’s class, students made interactive notebooks about money. They were able to identify and break down how many of each coin you would use to make up a dollar.
In Rabbi Kalter’s class, students started a new project about Moshe receiving the Torah at Mt. Sinai.
In Mrs. Depew’s class, students made different habitats that would be conducive for different types of animals. They also made “raccoon islands” to figure out which environment would be best for raccoons based on facts about them.
In Dr. B.’s class, the girls worked in their literature circles and were able to read together and talk about the themes of the books and focus on character development.
In Mr. Wilson’s class, the girls reviewed the Bill of Rights and made slideshows about the different amendments.
In Rabbi Skolnik’s class, the boys talked about how to determine a case if you only have similar ones to compare it to.
The Yachad boys worked on using alegebraic formulas to find the area of combined shapes and studied science information on isotopes on Frontier Charter Academy.
