*Have child use the bathroom before class begins.
*Ideally, device should have nothing else open or accessible.
*Child should have a clean, quiet space.
*Child should be sitting a table that is conducive for working, i.e. space to put papers down, to spread out for a craft activity.
*Webcam should be on at all times focused on the child.

Class time includes prayer and this year's unique curriculum briefly described below. Jewish Holidays will be covered in preparation for each one. Hebrew Reading will be on a separate time slot.

🏡 Curriculum Overview: 
Bring-It-Home: Making Judaism come alive through experiential and interactive learning.   

Given the unique circumstances, this year's curriculum is intentionally designed to focus on the beauty and energy of the Jewish home.

Bringing it Home has been developed to ensure that the content is both developmentally appropriate and user-friendly for Zoom settings (as well as in-person for when we get the green light to begin!) The curriculum is scaffolded to cater to each student within several age groups.

Our curriculum has been designed to be taught through a diverse set of mediums, including drama, construction, STEM, and stop-motion animation. The curriculum comprises of six units, focusing on lessons that are learned from each room of the home. The subjects will come alive as students learn about the Jewish holidays, empathy, respect and integrity amongst other life skills and Jewish values while exploring each room of their house.  

😊 Personal Aleph Champ Reading Day/Time:
Following last year's success, we are pleased to continue the personal reading time with your child. Every child who had this arrangement did exceedingly well in their Hebrew reading progress. Time and day is determined by family. You will be contacted to schedule a consistent day and time that works for each child. 

 
Note to parents who are waiting for in-person options to begin: The curriculum is identical for your children. Their individual supply boxes are being prepared so that we can roll it out for you as soon as we get the green light!  Please register so we can prepare accordingly. Once registered, you can sign them up for the online individual tutoring that they can start without waiting for in-person to begin.
