Shorashim Bet - Roots (3rd - 6th Grade)


Shorashim Bet meets on Sunday mornings and Wednesday afternoons.

Students in 3rd-6th grades continue in our Shivat Ha-Minim (Seven Species) Chavurah system retaining the name and identity they received in 2nd grade. This communal identity travels with them throughout our elementary and middle school learning programs.

3rd-6th grades include Hebrew and Jewish Studies in each session, however, the primary focus of our Hebrew instruction takes place on Wednesday afternoons. Students are grouped according to reading level rather than by grade.  The goals of our Hebrew learning  center on core competencies in Jewish Heritage Vocabulary such as tzedakah, tikkun olam, torah, siddur, mitzvah, t'filah, Hebrew decoding skills, service leading, and prayer fluency and comprehension.  All classes participate in leading a Friday night service or Saturday morning service.
 
3rd-6th grades meet 9:30am-noon on Sundays and 4:00-6:00pm on Wednesdays. Parents join their children for our Opening Circle from 9:30-10:00. Parents are also welcome to join us for Closing Circle/Story Time, 5:45-6:00 on Wednesdays.
 
3rd-6th grades each have two Mishpacha Days during the year when parents join us for a full morning of learning with their children.
