Gimel (Gr.3)

Grade 3

Coordinator: Rebecca Karen
Teachers : Rebecca Karen and Michael Singer

 

Grade 3 students learn to read Hebrew words and phrases using the textbook, Alef Bet Quest, and by participating in a variety of group reading games and activities. Students are encouraged to use the The Alef Bet Quest DVD for home practice. Additionally, students learn to write in Hebrew script and participate in class one-on-one reading time with their teacher to assess their progress. Students also explore their questions and ideas about God and delve into the Torah texts from the first chapters of the Book of Genesis through study, discussion, drama, and arts & crafts. The children explore several Torah texts in a more mature and analytical way than they have in the past. Their studies include the following stories: The two stories of Creation, Cain and Abel, Noah, and the Tower of Babel. The year culminates with a Siyyum HaSefer (Celebration of The Book) ceremony. During the ceremony, each student reads a phrase in Hebrew from Psalms, and the students and the cantor lead a variety of fun Hebrew songs for their families. Students receive a copy of the Mishkan T’filah Prayer book inscribed with their English and Hebrew names and a dedication plate written by their parents.

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