This week in my 6th grade class we took time to go over the topics we will cover this year. We talked about the Torah where it may have come from and why it is relevant for us to study the stories told within the pages. We also discussed the way we will be studying the stories of the different Torah through Forms Of Expression such as games, art and performance. We then talked about the history lessons we will have this year about World War II/the Holocaust. We then did a short Hebrew assessment, to place the students in appropriate Hebrew levels. Im very appreciative of how we were able to start the class with intention and great discussion. I'm looking forward to the upcoming classes with a great 6th grade class!
