Dear Grade 2 Parents,
In this week’s class, we focussed on examining the traditional customs performed on Purim. Students learned about the importance of hearing the Megillah, using a Greggor, dressing up in costumes, eating Hamatashen, and giving Mishloach Manot baskets to others. Students had the opportunity to make and decorate their own Mishloach Manot baskets to bring home and send to their family and friends. In Hebrew, we studied three new vowels: Segol, Cholam and Shva. Students practiced putting together the Hebrew letters with their newly learned vowels.
Just a reminder that next week is family day weekend and there are no YEC classes. The following week, Sunday February 25th, Holy Blossom will be having its annual Purim carnival, all parents are invited to spend the entire morning with us. It will be a very busy day packed with a special Purim activity, Shinshinim, tefilah and a Purim carnival. If you are unable to join us for the entire morning, please come at 10:30 for tefilah and the carnival. However, everyone is strongly encouraged to join us the entire time 🙂
As well on Feb 25 please make sure all children arrive in costume! It’s going to be so much fun!
