Kindergarten - Grade 1 Teacher

We emphasize Jewish symbols which provide concrete visual expression and are intended to enable the children to feel a sense of group identity. Children will learn about Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Sukkot, Shabbat, Hanukkah, Tu B’shvat, Purim , Passover and Yom Ha’atzmaut from a Humanistic Jewish perspective. Students will learn through group projects, stories, dramatic play, arts and craft, cooking, games and songs.

 

Grades 2-3 Teacher

This curriculum will focus on the study of Bible characters. We will discuss what heroic qualities we see in biblical personalities, and explore what Humanistic Jewish values make a strong leader and community member. We will learn with games, arts and crafts, music, cooking, group projects, and reading. We will create artwork and assemble a booklet recording our learning and discussions about biblical stories, mitzvot and Humanistic values.
