RELIGIOUS SCHOOL UPDATE
Update from Morah Ellen, 3rd and 4th Grade Teacher:
"We’re accelerating our Hebrew learning as we head into the final months of the school year. Fourth grade just learned the vowels that make the “O” and “OO” sounds; there are two of each. I was impressed to hear them read real Hebrew words that include those vowels. They not only know the vowels’ shapes and sounds but have “memory clues” to help differentiate one from another.
Both third and fourth grades began our Pesach study talking about what we remember from our family Seders and the Pesach food we love to eat every year -- chocolate covered matzah was top of the list. We began learning “The Four Questions” and since the students know so many letters now, they could read many the words in Hebrew as well understand meanings and even some basic grammar. Very exciting!
Rabbi August stopped by to teach us the Avadim Hayinu Passover song. We like that her teaching includes hand movements that help us remember the meaning of the words we’re singing. Third grade also began learning the items on the seder plate as they began drawing plates that have both the Hebrew and English names for each item."
Please save the date for our next Religious School Passover Celebration.
