    Second Graders Learning Ukelele as Introduction to String Family of Instruments

    This week, the second graders were introduced to a new piece of the music curriculum – learning to play the ukulele! The ukelele is the perfect introductory instrument to the string family to teach the second graders how to use their fingers and play the chords. A key component to the 3rd grade music curriculum is learning to play the guitar, so the ukulele provides a smaller medium for the second graders to learn string instruments and prepare for the guitar for next year. Eventually our second grade musicians will be able to sing and play at the same time, and they will be performing with their ukuleles at the music tefillah in the spring. What is the first song the class is learning? Yellow Submarine, originally performed by The Beatles.

    First Graders Learn Mindfulness Techniques

    Along with becoming acquainted with the first grade classroom and their teachers, the first graders are also embarking on a journey of mindfulness practice. When the first graders practice mindfulness, they create a space to be present with their emotions and thoughts. Mindfulness is a great way to teach our students to pay attention to their body, breath, thoughts, and emotions. The first graders have been practicing mindfulness every day for 5-10 minutes through breathing exercises, yoga, tai chi, and energy balls. In addition to mindfulness practices, first graders read the book, What If Everybody Did That?, and wrote their own class book about positive and negative actions and their consequences. Mindfulness practices have helped the first graders harness and channel that energy into positive actions.

    Eighth Graders Experiment with Copper and Sulfur

    Eighth graders were hard at work in the science lab this week learning about reactants and products by conducting an experiment in which they heated copper and sulfur and observed the changes. This experiment tasked our students with calculating the change in mass of the reactant and the product, visualizing their data in a histogram, and drawing conclusions from their findings. What a sight it was in the lab when the reactants (copper and sulfur) were heated to create a yellow swirl of smoke in a test tube! MORE PHOTOS

    Sixth Graders Become Pursuers of Peace, through a Pardes Program

    Rodfei shalom (pursuers of peace) was the name used throughout Jewish history to refer to communal leaders who took initiative to pursue peace within the community. In sixth grade Judaic studies, we are piloting the Pardes middle school program Rodef Shalom: Transforming School Conflict through Rabbinic Texts. Over the past few years it has been taught in seventh and eighth grade classes throughout the nation; BHDS is the first school to introduce it to sixth graders. The goal of the program is for the sixth graders to be mindful of themselves as pursuers of peace (rodfei shalom), seeking to understand conflicting needs and perspectives and to balance them in a constructive way.
