Just a quick summary of some of the great things going on in Akiva classrooms:
In Grade 5:
In English class, the children were listening to a podcast written by an author in order to picture what the author was saying. They evaluated the descriptive language that was used-did the author succeed in painting the story? Using technology to inspire critical thinking-wow!
In Grade 1:
A teachable moment was seized to discuss how grade one students can act to support their friends in order to make better choices-and the conversation was all in French-Bravo!
In Grade 6:
On Remembrance Day, during Hebrew class, the children were reading a French newspaper and talking about a special Hebrew prayer, “El Male Rachamim”-integration of our three languages at its best.
