May13 – May 17,2013

Highlights of this Week:
We learned about suspensions in Discovery with Mr. Greg. We worked on our special projects for our Mother’s Day Shabbat which we celebrated on Friday. Happy Mother’s Day!!!!!
Coming Up Next Week:
We have a short week this week. Monday we will be making the Ten Commandments and flower head bands for Shavuot. We will be having Jewish studies on Tuesday this week instead of Monday because we will be celebrating Shavuot. Please bring in a can of fruit and wear white on Tuesday. Tuesday is also early release day; we will be getting out of school at 12:00 noon. There is no school on Wednesday and Thursday 5/15 and 5/16. When we come back we will be starting our unit on the ocean. We will be making sand buckets and shovels and learning about sea horses on Friday.

Home Learning Opportunities:
1) Celebrate Shavuot by donating fruit for Tzedakah or to the food pantry.

2) Go to the beach and collect some shells.

3) Go to a pet store and look at the different kinds of fish they have.
