Dalet (4th Grade)

Dalet Updates followed by their weekly schedules:

Today in Dalet we focused on our Hebrew packets and insuring each student progresses at their own level. We reviewed many pages and many of the students who had issues before seem to have improved. Since we had a full staff of Madrichim it was very helpful and we can engage all the students individually or in small groups.

We studied Parashat Beshallach in preparation for Shabbat Family Programming (SFP). We continue practicing to read Ivrit. I am happy to say that our students are making progress.

This link has an access to a downloadable PDF text of all of the prayers for our students to study at their own pace:

Please make sure your child practices reading in Hebrew at home for at least 10 minutes every day.

In case your student has yet to master all 22 Hebrew letters, here is a fun YouTube to watch, for some quick review:

-Written 1-9-19 by Mrs. Tikva Moustakis,

We have finished up our zikaron (remembrance) unit by taking family history and stories and turning them into illustrated pages that show where our families came from and what they experienced. Students have really appreciated the opportunity to explore more about their own pasts and the people who made their lives possible. We look forward to starting a new unit in January.

We finished our unit on tochechah (correcting others effectively and appropriately) by creating comic strips that lay out stories of people correcting their peers. These were drawn from students' personal stories, but were then "fixed" to bring the reaction in line with the rules that we learned. After that, we took a day to work on re-decorating our classroom. Students made illustrated alef-bet cards to be hung along the perimeter of the room, and we are all looking forward to seeing them on display!
