Grade 4 Update

Posted on February 15, 2018

Shalom,

The fourth graders are quite excited about our upcoming vacation.  The energy they brought to school was used in a productive way.  I gave the students silly putty to use while reading out loud. This kept their hands busy and their minds on the task of reading the selection. 
Another technique, that we used was balancing. The students practiced balancing various sized items on their heads, while they read the prayers, for before and after Torah readings. Enjoy the pictures of our fourth graders working hard to read aloud. Rachel, was strong enough to read the full prayer, while doing a handstand and reading upside down. 
Movement, is helpful to assist our students with their learning and energy after a long day at secular school.  The students were happy to work and compete at reading the best while balancing. 
Have a wonderful and safe February vacation.
