    We will be partnered with Tsahala Aragan's class this year! I am so excited! Tsahala stayed at my house during her visit here in 2017, and we have become good friends.  We are looking forward to many projects together between our two classes!



     We will also be learning a bit of Hebrew with our amazing teacher, Mrs. Kleinberg! 


    Apps to help with Hebrew you can download from your App Store.

    This year we have done two projects as of 28 March 2019. 

    Our first project was on Google Slides.  Each set of partners took half a slide to list facts about him/herself.  We found out we are all a lot alike!


    Our second project was also in Google Slides.  Both classes read the book, Alexander and the Terrible Horrible, No Good Very Bad Day. We then wrote ways to have a better day!

    When Mrs. Aragamon returned to Israel she delivered our letters and gifts. Mr. Shine sent us these pictures.  There is a video, too, which I will try to upload soon! As you can see, our friends at Asif were VERY excited!
