This article is the logical extension of the work we have done with executive function. We want people in Jewish education to say that “Going to Hebrew School will make your child into a better student.” And, we want to suggest that “brain science” can help us to create more successful and impactful Jewish education.”

As teachers of young children, we tend to be enthusiastic about the work we do in our early childhood classrooms. We want these young learners to know so much about each holiday, but in our desire to give children every opportunity and every bit of information, sometimes the train gets a little off track.
As early childhood educators, we know how children learn.

In my previous column, I described how the 8th grade students at Oakland Hebrew Day School connect to Israel through the creation of terragraphs (paintings mixed with sand from Israel), inspired by Israeli artist Theo Tobiasse. Another favorite art experience amongst OHDS middle school artists is the rendering of Israel landscapes. This is a very simple experience that immerses the student artist in a selected destination.
