Grade One Music for Consecration

Mitkadem's self-paced and child-centered approach allows each student to achieve according to his/her own ability, identifes those students who need additional help early on, and gives the learner the ability to move more quickly through the material.
The program consists of 23 ramot, or levels. Students may work independently, with another student at a similar level, or with another student in a "tutorial" relationship. In a Mitkadem classroom, the teacher becomes more of a resource and facilitator for students' self-directed Hebrew learning.

Dynamic Hebrew Learning Groups
Hebrew studies at Temple Sinai:
• Small, dynamic learning groups, guided by one of our teachers;
• Organized by instructional level, or ramah;
• Organized into groups with a maximum of four students;
• Take place once per week, for an hour and a quarter;
• Take place either at students’ homes or at Temple (rooms will be available at Temple from Sunday to Thursday);
• Include short podcasts based on each prayer, in order to incorporate some aspect of Temple into the lesson.
Kita Dalet Prayers
Kita Dalet students will be tested by one of the rabbis, cantors, or director of congregational learning. An 80% prayer book reading proficiency will be required to place out of Kita Hey (Grade 7).
The prayer project testing will be done from the end of April to May.
If a student requires more Hebrew enrichment, they will be required to attend Wednesday classes during the fall semester.
To maintain siddur proficiency, a prayer service will be conducted once a month on Tuesdays before Religious School. This service will be held at 6.30 p.m. Attendance is expected for at least six of those services in their grade 7 year for those who have passed the proficiency test.
