Recently, Kitah Zayin Hebrew II students finished learning about the city of Tzfat and if you can’t visit this beautiful city directly, our students have learned how to visit and transform through the world of Virtual Reality (VR). Four different groups of students have transformed places in the city into lively places with lots of interesting characters. Students focused on familiar sites such as: The Artists’ Quarter, HaAri Synagogue, the Davidka Monument, and Old Town alleys. They gave each place a special character that almost makes it possible to touch the characters and hear their voices, smell the smell of spices in the city, enjoy walking in the alleys of the city or praying in the famous synagogue HaAri along with other worshipers! I have to admit that this is a very exciting experience and I am as passionate about the project as my students are. I hope that by the end of this week the students will be able to finish their projects and then we look forward to showing you the wonderful work that they have produced.
We opened the week by a Hebrew conversation about what students did in the Hannukah Holiday. During the week we played memory games to refresh our vocabulary, we read text from our textbook, translated it and answered a set of questions about it. Later on, we had two activities of group vocabulary practice and a competitive game of reading comprehension based on the text we learned earlier.
At the end of the week, the students recorded and sent a Hebrew happy birthday and feel better notes to peers who missed school on Friday.
In grade 6 Hebrew the class followed the study book texts and do the exercises and activities. I was looking for additional ways to enjoy and celebrate what we learned recently.
I offered the students to make up a scene with Hebrew dialogue where they will incorporate the new linguistic items they recently learned into a text which they will create and will base on the texts in our study book.
The students worked in groups, they choose characters similar to the ones in the story they have at their study book and added new characters to enrich the scene they created. They also added aspects and elements to the story and did it while using the new linguistic items that where recently learned in class.
After a few lessons of developing the text and practicing it, the students acted the scene using the dialogue they developed. They had fun writing, performing and acting.
The students found that working together creatively was a great way to make learning a meaningful fun activity, particularly when some of the students had limited experience talking and writing in Hebrew.

After learning about Yad Vashem, my grade 6 students, Maytal and Yardayna, have created a beautiful slideshow about Anne Frank. They have presented the slide show to the whole grade 2 class.
