6th Grade: Journey Through Our Jewish Lives
Learn the history of the modern State of Israel
Special programs and events that bring Israel to our 6th graders using experiential education techniques
Recognizing the role of our community in supporting us during significant moments in our live
Our 6th grades students will focus primarily on the modern State of Israel and will learn about all of the wonderful, and sometimes not so wonderful, aspects of life in Israeli society today. They will learn the history of how the State came to be, through the Palestinian-Israeli conflict of today. Learning will take place through discussion, video, food and movies.
Also, during our 6th grade program our children continue their Hebrew Language Journey and by the end of the year will continue to gain familiarity and fluency with the blessings: Torah blessings, Haftarah blessings, V’ahavta, Kiddush, Aleinu, and Kaddish.
Lomed B’Yachad (Learning Together) Optional Family Program for 6th and 7th graders and their parents
The monthly Lomed B’Yachad program for 6th and 7th grade families will be in its pilot year in 2016-17. For those families who choose the monthly Sunday option, it will be in lieu of the mid-week JID program, and Hebrew tutoring will be offered via skype for individual 20 minute weekly sessions with a teacher.
The Sunday morning program will run from 10:00am to 1:00pm and will include a creative service, family learning together, a monthly social action project in addition to the monthly Sunday family meeting, and brunch. For more information contact the office.
Skype Hebrew Tutoring & Hebrew Pods
Skype Hebrew tutoring will be offered to all 6th and 7th graders who opt in to the new Lomed B’Yachad (Learning Together) program.
Weekly skype tutoring will also be offered for an additional minimal fee to any CBY student who wants extra support and Hebrew tutoring in addition to what is taught at the JID program.
Hebrew Pods is a new way of teaching Hebrew that we will be piloting next year. The purpose is to create small groups of students who will meet together with a teacher for a shorter period of time. This will give us more time for JID learning and shorter, but more intense and personal Hebrew learning. All students in the JID program will be pulled out of the JID class for their Hebrew pod.
