Kitah Vav’s Sundays
Posted on May 24, 2016
The past few weeks have been eventful in the Kitah Vav classroom. We studied the story of Ruth and Naomi by performing skits for each other in groups; the class was once again able to demonstrate their enthusiasm and inventive staging with this story of friendship and family. We also took a long look at King Solomon, and the stories of his wisdom and how he attained it. We spent considerable time examining some of the proverbs attributed to him. Students performed close readings of proverbs from Writings, extrapolating their meanings and finding examples of where they felt they did and did not apply in everyday life, using both instances from their own lives and from literature and popular culture. We finished this unit by examining some modern proverbs we use today, and their meanings and contexts.
