Shalom School proudly employs the cutting-edge Hebrew Wizards curriculum. Founded in Connecticut in 2005 by Deborah Tarasow Salomon, Hebrew Wizards revolves around a series of thematic Wizards Boards. Each of these giant laminated poster boards is a colorful, professionally-designed visual depiction of key Jewish ideas, stories, facts, traditions and more. The Boards range in topic and include Hebrew language, Torah stories, tefillah (prayer), chagim(Jewish holidays), Israel and more!
How It Works: Students work to "master" specific boards they help select. The groups may, for example, decide to write a play, create an art project, invent a mnemonic device, write a song, or design a board game. Students then demonstrate what they've learned while playing games and having fun.
