Making Torah Personal for our Youngest Students

Location: 3
Date: Mon, March 14
Time: 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Making the study of Torah joyful and fun, while also transmitting its complexity, is one of my favorite challenges as a kindergarten teacher. In this session, we will explore strategies for inviting children to create and share meaningful interpretations of the Torah text. We'll look at some real examples from my kindergarten class, and consider what they reveal about children's understanding of the text. Then, we'll explore a selection of Megillat Esther together, sharing our interpretations of the text with loose parts.
