We had a super fun week at the Cohen School. I introduced a new way of learning Hebrew today. We'll be learning Hebrew in centers from now on. The centers I introduced today were the "workbook center" where students practice reading with a teacher or teen helper, the "computers" center, where students play Hebrew games on the computer and the IPAD, the "skit" center, where students act out the letter of the week, and the "game" center where students play a variety of Hebrew games.
In addition to our center time, we came up with out tzedakah project. In the spring, we'll be running a car wash to raise money for an organization of our choice. Stay tuned for more details.
Finally, we are about to embark on a study of our Hebrew names and family history. I asked students to please fill out the form called "Hebrew Name and Family History Project" attached below. This is meant to be a meaningful project for the whole family. In order for your child to participate in class next week, they need to bring this sheet with them.
For homework this week, in addition to the attached form, please complete lesson 15 in the tiyulim app.
