Omanut (Grades 4-5) - Omanut (visual art) provides 4th & 5th graders hands-on learning experiences with paper, paint, clay, and other media as they explore the intersection of their own creativity, Jewish learning and the arts. Omanut offers budding artists and visual learners the opportunity to explore Jewish prayer, text and tradition as they create works of art individually and communally that reflect their own interpretations of the texts and prayers they examine.
Sifrut (Grades 4-5) - Sifrut (literature - formerly Beit Midrash) engages 4th & 5th graders in rich, meaningful and experiential Jewish learning through age-appropriate works of literature and the study of our sacred texts. Both at home with their parents and in learning groups at TBE, students explore the characters and themes of each book within the context of Jewish life, text and tradition.
Tagliyot (Grades 4-5) - Tagliyot (discoveries) engages 4th & 5th grade students in experiential Jewish learning through science, technology, engineering and math. Students use experimentation, design thinking and the scientifc method to examine connections between science and technology and Jewish values and identity. This innovative hands-on learning enables students to create new designs, prototypes, models and approaches to explore the relationships we have with ourselves and the world around us.
