Fourth grade is off to a fun start, highlighted by great work practicing and improving at Hebrew. We introduced our class song, “B’chol Dor Va Dor (In Every Generation)” and we sing it every class as we pass around our tzedakah box. We’ve got a lot of kids who are excited to be singing and I hope to introduce some drumming into the mix too! Like “B’chol Dor Va Dor,” most of the Hebrew learning we do will be content driven, connected to the Torah text and its themes. Our focus this year will be Exodus through Deuteronomy, books 2-5 of the Torah. We are already beginning to explore some of this portion of the Torah’s core themes including slavery, freedom, empathy, peoplehood and covenant.
After each class I will send out a Family Conversation, to be led by your child for 10-15 minutes at home. The Family Conversation is critical reinforcement of the students’ learning and is important for their progression in Jewish literacy, including Hebrew. It is intended to be fun and interesting for parents too.
Please feel free to be in touch with if you have any questions, concerns, or thoughts.
