Kitah Hey (5th)

October 2018

Shalom!  I am Morah Lital and am excited to be teaching 5th grade Judaic and Hebrew studies.  This is my first year teaching at Etz Hayim and I’m excited to meet your children and get to know them.  I’m sure this will be a great year fully of learning history, Hebrew, prayers and much more.  ~ Lital Burr

Kitah Hey Newsletter:  October 28, 2018

We had a great time in October!  We continued to get to know our classmates and building a great close religious school community.  We learned about the value of the month, Lashon Hara:  evil speech (about another person).  We continued our journey through Jewish history and learned about the three first kings of Israel, the first holy temple, who conquered Israel, the prophets and the divided kingdom.  The students worked together to build a model of the first holy temple using Legos.  We also started to learn about our Siddur and started to map it.  In Tefillah we continue to learn the Ashrie using the new Hebrew in Harmony program.  This is a program that will help us learn prayers using an app with games, explanation about the prayers and many more!  Every Wednesday the students will receive homework to practice reading the prayer at home.

November 2018

In November we will continue to dive deeper into Jewish history, finish the Ashrei, learn about the value of the month (Tikun Olam:  repairing the world) and continue to learn modern Hebrew using Hebrew Through Movement.
