Jewish Montessori Curriculum for Elementary
Our lower elementary classroom includes boys, grades 1-3 and girls, grades 1-5.
Hebrew Language/ Kriyah/ Chumash
Our curriculum is exciting and allows us to connect with one another and the material. We work on learning the skills needed to delve into our Torah and enjoy taking deeper looks into the Parsha and Midrash stories we have learned about since we were young.
The sky’s the limit on what can be learned in our science area. Anything the children find interesting can be added to our curriculum. Between what the children think up, the animals in our classrooms and the Montessori and state science curriculum, there is A WHOLE LOT to learn!
Jewish Culture / Human Culture / History
In our classroom, we learn about the basic needs of all human beings as well as our needs as Jewish people. We celebrate our differences and similarities and focus on respect and kindness for all.
All the materials start with the concrete and move toward abstraction, as children become ready for it. Our hands-on curriculum includes:
Starting with the micro and working toward the macro, we learn about maps starting with the map of our hand and working out. This area of the classroom is so fascinating because we get to learn about other countries, flags, animals...and much more.
