Learning about Family History
The students in second grade interviewed a family member and learned all about their family's history. They took that information and then created an Adobe Spark video. The students have learned how to bring in images, add photos, captions and voice overs. What a beautiful tribute to honor family history!
Dressed in Their Finest
A sign that the third graders' final parsha siyum will be a success is when the students request a repeat of the celebratory activity from their very first siyum of the school year. For the Parshat Chayei Sarah siyum, students were assigned to select and own a character from the parsha. They came to the siyum celebration dressed as their choice and shared anecdotal information about the personality. Next week, we will be celebrating the siyum of Parshiyot Vayeitze and Vayishlach. Students are enthusiastically looking forward to being decked out as their favorite parsha character and eager to reflect on their choice.
How proud are we of our students who give new meaning to the words: presenting the Torah in its finest.
