The study of Hebrew Language will continue with a review of letters and vowels and more reading and writing opportunities. We will develop our Hebrew vocabulary by creating our own Hebrew dictionaries and picture books and learning and reciting popular Hebrew poems and songs. We will play games like bingo, jeopardy and memory to reinforce what we learn and act out dialogues to improve our conversational Hebrew skills. The study of Hebrew culture will continue with learning about the upcoming holidays (Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Sukkot, and Chanukah), as well as learning about important Jewish historical figures, places and events from ancient to modern times.
This class is only open to continuing students.
