Presented by Mary Hoffman at the 2007 Biennial Workshop "Tot Shabbat That Rocks"
1. Start each session by cutting out cookies in the shape of the Hebrew letter of the day: cookies bake as children learn. 2. Help children create their own Torahs and appurtenances. 3. Integrate Hebrew and Torah through winnowing portions to coincide with letters. 4. Design a craft each week to coincide with the letter and/or Torah portion. 5. Play and learn music that coincides with the letter and/or Torah portion. 6. Have a movement activity (clapping, dancing, etc.) that coincides with letter and/or Torah portion. 7. Make individualized mats so children can find theirs easily, place it in a circle, and sit on it. 8. Make sure all senses are utilized every week. 9. Sing alef bet song every week (emphasizing the weeks letter). 10. End each session by blessing grape juice and cookies and eating!
