“Partway-through” Update: Limudei Kodesh Curriculum

One surreal thing about schooling all year is that there’s always this feeling that you’re “partway” through the year.  Nowhere near the beginning, but not approaching the end either.  I don’t mind it, we’re definitely not in the doldrums, but it makes it tough to figure out when to stop and evaluate what we’re doing and whether it’s working.

image Things I plan to start fairly soon:

  • Being better at davening!!!  We haven’t done it with any regularity since the summer.  Something about waking up too late in the mornings… :-(
  • Safa = Hebrew Language:
    • Shalom Ivrit Book 2.  I have the book already and it looks good.  Far more contemporary and the graphics are more normal-looking and less flashy.  It has less writing than Migdalor, but I think that’s okay, because we’ll be working on script handwriting in a different book.
  • Handwriting:
  • History:

Are you at the midpoint of your year yet?  When do you sit back and evaluate what you’ve got going on and whether or not it’s working for you???
