Vav (6th Grade)

Vav Updates followed by their weekly schedules:

I started a conversation about How much time is “leap”, in a secular year and how much time is “leap” time in a Jewish leap year? We discussed the fact about a Jewish calendar in many months having 28 days and others more days. The idea of a leap month, and what holiday is the FIRST holiday in a leap year and how do we celebrate it?  Is this a leap year? How do you know by the calendar we are in a leap year and what Holiday is the first leap year holiday? How do you deal with a second Purim? Which is the one we celebrate?

We then went back to our original topic of Sacred communities and talked about group projects how projects are activities we do all our lives as adults and what to do if someone in your group does not what to work.

We have continued to work on conversational vocabulary and useful phrases while incorporating important words for understanding the siddur. Several students have taken it upon themselves to create a scavenger hunt activity, which we will be doing on December 19th. This should be fun!
