8th Grade Blog                                                       September 6, 2017

I was so happy to meet all of the 8th graders tonight! They seem like a close group of friends who love to have fun and play games, and so I am hoping to capitalize on that in my lessons. I began class by telling the students a little about myself and then we went around the room so I could learn a bit about them. I designed a Jenga game where I wrote some Judaism-related as well as getting-to-know-you questions on the blocks, which they seemed to like. One of the students introduced a fun name game that had the whole class laughing. I asked the students what would help make this class something they would be more engaged/ interested in and a lot of them mentioned how they like games, music, videos, and food, so I will try my best to keep this in mind! I will see them all next week!
