Today in class we worked on:
11/5 –
1) Today was a great day of learning. 
2) We worked on and completed chapter 5 in our seferrim (books). The chapter is about the extended Kiddush, and how this blessing starts, also, with a formula. The Kiddush has two root words that are used in different ways. Ask your student if they remember the roots for Remember and Holy.
3) The class is to pick a charity for their Tzedakah. Let’s get the holy act of tzedakah going. Every little bit counts.
Homework to be completed by next class:
11/5 –
1) Your student should work on the computer lessons for chapter 5. It is a good idea for them to keep up to date with the computer lessons. Hebrew is a language that builds upon itself, so it is always good to keep practicing. It is the Berhman House online website.
2)  Please make sure your student has a dedicated Hebrew school folder. This is to keep their homework neat, safe, and easily retrieved. A pencil is required as well.

 
 

Today in class we worked on:
10/29 –
1) We worked on the second half of chapter 4 in our sefer (Book). The chapter is about the blessings and rituals for Shabbat, and how these blessing starts. They also have a formula. Ask your student about Shabbat blessing formula. Once again, a hint is it a blessing starts with Baruch.
2) Ask your child if they remember the Hebrew word for root. We have been discovering how most words in Hebrew have a root on which they build words off of. The roots this week were for the word holy, and peace. Ask your student whether they remember these root words.
Homework to be completed by next class:
10/29 –
1) Your student should complete the computer lessons for chapter 4. Try to encourage you student to complete chapters 1-3, as well. Hebrew is a language that builds upon itself, so it is always good to keep practicing. It is the Berhman House online website.
2) There are three pages of homework to be completed by next Tuesday. They should not be too difficult, as these students are extremely bright. We will go over the work next week.
3) Please make sure your student brings his/her dedicated Hebrew school folder. This is to keep their homework neat, safe, and easily retrieved. A pencil is required as well.

 

Today in class we worked on:
10/22 –
1) We started with a school-wide quiz on the Aleph-Bet, and vowel sounds.
2) In addition, we worked on the first half of chapter 4 in our sefers. The chapter is about the blessings for Shabbat, and how these blessing start, also, with a formula. Ask your student about the three blessings we read about today. The hints are: what is used on Shabbat.
3) Chapter 4 deals with why we celebrate Shabbat. We read the very beginning of Genesis, (1-2.4) in English, to understand the order in which Creation took place, and why the seventh day is holy.
4) The class ended with the monthly Tefillah with Rabbi Prass.
Homework to be completed by next class:
10/22 –

Today in class we worked on:
10/15 –
1) We worked on learning how to pronounce a cholem vav as either a v sound, or an o sound. I sent home two papers that have an explanation, and practice. Hebrew has markings and grammar rules that can seem difficult at first, but these students are bright. They’re catching on. Ask your child if they remember the differences between a bet with a dagesh (little dot in the middle). When does the dagesh represent a B sound, or when does it represent a doubling of the letter.
2) We had our first pizza dinner
