Midweek Hebrew - Margaret

Tuesday

Gimel

Students rotated through Hebrew stations where they read lines of Hebrew words from the Siddur (prayer book) aloud, played a Hebrew board game, and sped read Hebrew flashcards. These activities are helping the students sharpen their Hebrew reading skills and improve their Hebrew reading speed.

Dalet and Hey 

Students worked through their Mitkadem packets. Many of the students are working on learning the blessing formula and when we recite dufferent blessings (over food, holidays, shabbat,special occasions, etc..) They are also working on learning new vocabulary which will help them  understand the tefilot they are learning in Shira/Tefillah. 

Vav

Most students completed Ramah 6 on the blessing for an Aliyah to the Torah. In their assessments, they identified the meaning of the prayer by matching vocabulary words and reflected on the words about God choosing the Jewish people, why the prayer uses the words “gives” the Torah, and why the prayer says that God planted everlasting life within us. Their responses included that God chose the Jewish people to receive the Torah and perform mitzvot, the prayer says “gives” because we continue to receive the Torah today, and that we can have everlasting life by passing the Torah from generation to generation.

Hey

Students read lines of Hebrew words from the Siddur (prayer book) aloud and then played a Hebrew board game while being pulled out individually to read three lines of Hebrew to the teacher. These activities are helping the students sharpen their Hebrew reading skills and improve their Hebrew reading speed.

Vav

As the Vav students time in traditional religious school is coming to a close, we are reviewing all of the prayers and their meanings that the students have learned in Mitkadem so that they will hopefully recall the prayer’s meaning as they are preparing for their B’nai Mitzvot and when they later attend services as Jewish adults. Students are also learning to lead the Ashrei and may have an opportunity to lead it in services, if they want. We are also spending the last 15 minutes of each class continuing our introduction to conversational Hebrew, with common phrases that the students can use if they travel to Israel with their families or teen trips or on Birthright trips, when they are older. So far, the students can introduce themselves, state where they are from, say that they are traveling somewhere, and what they might have in the backpack. This week, we started learning words for food and beverage items. It Is great to hear them speaking Hebrew.
