Another great Wednesday. We’ve managed to finish the work on the first prayer the Avot. Students that completed the work first, helped their friends, so that I could spend some time reading with each one individually. Sandra Merovic, our Grade 4 teacher, is also helping with reading and I know that with the determination of all of our students, they will be great readers. We talked about the second Parasha in the Torah – the Portion of the week – Noah, God’s disappointment from the bad people, only Noah was a righteous man in his generation, the flood, and God’s promise to never flood the world again, a promise that came in the symbol of a rainbow.
in our session on the Prophets, in role-playing, we interviewed each other to see what each one liked or disliked in his role as a prophet, how each one became a prophet, what made each one a good prophet etc. We also made some advertisements, looking for prophets (you can see them hanging in our class, they are fun!). We wrote a summary, each one about the prophet that he read about.
Next week we will read our summaries, so that each one will know about the three: Samuel, Ezekiel and Hosea and compare them.
It is great to see that the kids are following and participating in the service. They are masters!
Have a great week.
