May 2013 Updates: Hahgoot’s News: More studies Hahgoot’s Maths studies are always a tricky subject, finding the balance between her ability and her interests. Top: learning about quantities with the “Capacity Creature” Bottom: an advanced stickers workbook.
In Hebrew, Hahgoot has greatly enjoyed the “Shakshuka” series (by Galia Oz, Amos Oz’ daughter), her poetry workbook and writing stories
She works in year 2 comprehension workbooks in Hebrew independently. She read two of the “Shakshuka” books and drew illustrations.
Hahgoot was very impressed by the large denim pencil case she received from the BJE and it is now her “homework organizer”.
She has enjoyed the unit about Shavuot and the ten commandments, and was interested in the unit about Tel-Aviv. Bottom left: decorating a Matka!
I made a presentation about Tel-Aviv to accompany the story in her BJE workbook. She was a bit confused when I added photos of her in Tel-Aviv as she thought it was a story about the two BJE characters... It was a nice unit, showing how the city changed over the years (and a good opportunity to talk about how my dad, me and her saw the city in different stages as well).
Some of Hahgoot’s artwork Left: the birds mobile from the Gallery workshop Top: a collage for autumn Right: the great mosaic she made at the library workshop over the holidays. She had a very original design!
Hahgoot made a workbook for Alma about Dora’s adventures. Interestingly, she decided to make a story about balloons and solving problems with them...
Hahgoot was having lots of social problems with her BFFs Elijana and Jasmin. We had many discussions about being a friend, keep a friend and when a friendship isn’t a good one. We made some sheets to try and sort out the problems (with little success).
Can’t remember if I put this one up before. This is the list of “rules” I made with Hahgoot for the trip to Israel and she illustrated. She was involved in suggesting the rules as well. From top right: Always use social smarts; every day do morning and night procedure with no arguments, positively and independently; Be flexible and not rigid – plans can change!; You should try new food and experiences every time; don’t hit your sister – find a compromise!; take turns and share games and activities; keep agreements (with mum); stay calm – especially regarding unexpected noises (here she drew Amitai, because she wasn’t sure how he will behave when she meets him...). As you know from the trip presentations, some rules held better than others...
In our next presentation: Hahgoot’s updates: swimming and social issues
