Sundays for Fourth Grade focus on a deeper dive into Hebrew, our holy language as well as Jewish culture. Our Hebrew program in 4th grade includes T’fillot, Ivrit, and Shira and expands to teach students the Hebrew Alef Bet and decoding skills to enable our students to read Hebrew with competence and confidence. Students work to master fluent decoding and recitation of core prayers.
In addition to Hebrew students choose how they want to learn about Jewish culture through art, drama, cooking and more each Sunday morning.
Our 4th grade JQuesters on Tuesdays explore our Holy Land and Our Jewish Lifecycle in their Quests. Students learn about the regions of Modern Israel and the wonders of our Jewish homeland. They then use their knowledge to create an Israel experience for our younger students. In the second trimester students engage in a study of the Jewish lifecyce and how ritual enhances life’s celebrations. Students create their own presentations to share their learning.
