3 Kislev 5776
Dear First Grade Families,
Today we continued to learn about the story of Noah’s Ark. We discussed the meaning of a Midrash. There are many different versions of Noah’s Ark. Some of the stories are from the words in the Torah and some explain the story of what is not in the Torah. Students were then asked to write a letter to Noah from the perspective of one animal describing how that animal feels on the ark.
We watched a G-d Cast video about Noah’s Ark:
We read the book, Why Noah Chose the Dove, by Isaac Bashevis Singer. This story is like a Midrash.
We also went to a school-wide assembly to learn about the URJ Camps. We watched a promotional video and witnessed a science experiment!
Have a great week and see you next Sunday.
