Welcome to 8th Grade Tanach

It was a pleasure meeting with 8th graders and their parents during orientation. Here is some of the information I shared that will be helpful as we move forward.  We will be studying the Books of Joshua and Judges, as well as the Hagaddah.

Vocabulary lists will be distributed on Tuesdays and quizzes will take place on the following Tuesday.  Generally students will take a quiz each Tuesday and receive their new list the same day. If your child was absent or lost the list, it should be available via Google drive. Each list also has a url that will take the student to the Dahbear.org website to practice the assigned vocabulary. Graded quizzes will be sent home for your signature. Bringing them back for me to see counts as a homework assignment.

Reading Assignments will be distributed on Thursdays and reading assessments will be the following Thursday. Generally students will read for me each Thursday and receive their new assignment the same day.If your child was absent or lost the page, it should be available via Google drive. Also shared to Google Drive is an audio file of me reading the assignment. Students should feel free to use this to assist them with difficult words, or to check their pronunciation.

If you know ahead of that your child will be missing class, I would appreciate a heads up. This helps me plan my lessons and makes it easier to help you child make up missed work. Sometimes work can be made up ahead of time, sometimes it must be done afterwards. It is the students responsibility to come to me for missed work following an absence. 

I am very excited to be working with your children.  I am most easily reached via email. Feel free to contact me with questions!
