Dalet (Gr.4)

Grade 4

Coordinator: Alicia McGee
Teacher: Michael Singer and Shana Alexander

Grade 4 students strengthen their connections to their religious school community and Jewish identity as they learn about Israel and hone their Hebrew skills.  The students use the book Welcome To Israel as well as modern technology to learn about and experience Israel through multimedia.  Some of the topics that the students explore are: Arts and Culture, Diversity, A Jewish State, History, The Environment and The Economy. Each student will participate in a year- long project; documenting and showing their connection the variety areas studied about Israel using different mediums.  Students will gain a new perspective on Jewish holidays and explore traditions at home and within Israel.  They will be able to bring these insights home to help families celebrate together.  A highlight of the 4th grade year is the Shabbaton during which 4th graders will come together for a day of learning, Havdallah, and exploration. Students also participate in Hebrew groups and class time during which they learn the following prayers: Kiddush, Torah Blessings, Barchu, Shma and V’havtva. 

Grade 4 meets on Sundays (8:45am-10:45am or 11:00am-1:00pm) and Wednesdays (3:40-5:30).
