This week’s homework in Hebrew, students are to read each text for each day two times,  circle, underline or highlight unfamiliar words and be ready to come to class the next day to look them up and input them in their personal dictionaries.  Everyday, they are given time to work on their new vocabulary words and they can complete the questions in class IF they choose to.

They are expected to come to class, having attempted the readings independently ;), remembering it is their homework to complete.  Showing up to class prepared for the next step is the first step to success ;).

Dear Parents,

We are starting our year with our 7 habits, beginning with the end in mind, teaching our students to be self-directed learners.  I understand, that it might seem challenging in another language, but it is important to remember that these are our building blocks. Students can realize that it is okay if they don’t understand or recognize some words. In their readings at home, I strongly encourage them to read the text two times on their own and to underline, highlight or circle any words that they are not familiar with.  The next day,  they  come to class  eager to look them up and work together with me and their peers to clarify and include the words in their personal dictionaries for future reference. There are also questions that they can answer if they have time in class.  We will continue to work on these skills of owning their own learning and being proactive.

The goal at home is to read independently, working their way through the text and practicing their reading. The vocabulary piece will be emphasized in Hebrew class.

This is how we learn. When we step out of our comfort zone, that is when real learning takes place! That being said, we will recognize IVRIT B’IVRIT (speaking only Hebrew in class).  One step at a time ,with more determination, I am confident that we will make progress and the results will be worth it! 🙂

Every day for their reading, students are encouraged to:

-Read the text twice

-Indicate any words that need understanding

Should you have any questions, please contact me:

As part of our preparations for the Model Seder at Hillel lodge, all students will present something throughout the Haggadah (explanations, riddles, song, etc…). Here we see 3 of our students using a video to teach us the signs for ‘Kadesh Urchatz’.

Kitah Dalet, please use it to practice at home.

The great thing is that now I can use it to teach my Kitah Alef students as well, and of course I will spread the word, so maybe other grades will use it as well.

Toda bannot 🙂
