In Hebrew we added the L’maan paragraph to the V’ahavta and chanted it. We reviewed the story of Passover by filling in Hebrew words in our Pesach booklet as well as singing and translating the Four Questions in Hebrew. In Judaic Studies we began looking at the Book of Exodus. We read the story and used finger puppets to act out the 10 plagues. We also looked at different haggadot from the 16th, 17th and 18th century.
Today in class we started to go back and review topics from earlier this year, starting with Talmud Torah. The students broke into groups and completed various activities such as filling out word searches with key terms, writing unique skits, and creating review questions for one giant study game (to be played on Sunday). In Hebrew we continued to review both the 4 questions and the Amidah. Mrs. Goldberg also shared her Moss Haggadah with the students.
Today in 6th grade we worked on posters about the Negev. We colored and made word splashes. Then we participated in Tefilah.
During the first hour we prepared to lead tefilah and we reviewed some of the Jewish vocabulary words we studied earlier in the year. We played a Jewpardy game and an Around the World game that the students had created.
