In 2nd grade at Yeshivat Noam our students begin learning Chumash. In addition to building foundation skills and content knowledge, we have found it very important to integrate the learning and form connections with the text. In this presentation, I demonstrate how we have integrated our Chumash learning into Tefillah, science, math and art.
