"Cereal of the Week" makes the Parsha come alive! Every cereal parsha has divrei Torah in it. It took me 3 years to complete. It is all online at: http://www.chinuch.org/item_detail/Cereal-Of-The-Week-Parsha-Program. (71 parsha cereal sheets) Every child loves cereals! Many parents told me their children did not want to be pressured at the Shabbos table with parsha questions, and the weekly parsha cereal sheet was the answer!

I have attached some samples. There is a cereal for every parsha, yom tovim, Rosh Hashana, Yom Kippur, Chanukah, and Purim. It is a great method to help remember what each parsha is about! Students also now think of their own ideas of which cereals apply to a parsha.
