Kriah (Hebrew reading) and Kesiva (Hebrew writing) are essential components of a well-rounded Jewish education. These skills not only help our students connect with their heritage but also promote cognitive development, language skills, and a sense of accomplishment. Our Kriah/Kesiva Plan is built on the following goals:

Essential to the success of our program is tailoring our curriculum to our students' level, tracking their progress, and providing students ample time to practice reading in school and at home.


Kriah/Kesiva Schedule:

The schedule for Kriah/Kesiva varies by grade. However, across all grade levels, a block of Kriah/Kesiva will be incorporated in the Jewish Studies block.


Student Groups/Levels:

A central feature of our program calls for students to work with a Kriah Buddy (K-5) or Chavrusa (MS/HS) to hold each other accountable to learning goals. Learning Groups who reach their learning goals will be able to participate in special celebrations of their accomplishments. The celebrations include prize raffles and special luncheons.


Homework and Practice:

To reinforce learning, students will receive homework assignments and practice materials. We encourage parents to support their children's efforts by allocating dedicated time for practice at home.


Assessment and Progress Reports:

Three times a year, TJA will conduct assessments to track each student's progress. We will share these results with parents through progress reports and/or report cards to keep you informed about your child's development.


Parental Involvement:

We believe that a collaborative effort between parents and the school is vital for your child's success. Here are ways parents can get involved:

  • Practice at Home: Encourage your child to practice Kriah/Kesiva regularly and to complete their Kriah/Kesiva homework.

  • Provide Ample Opportunities to Read Hebrew: Either through encouraging brachot at the Shabbos table or attending tefillah in shul with your child, their is no replacement for immersive experiences to practice reading at home. 

  • Celebrate your child's achievements in Hebrew: Praise their efforts and progress to boost their confidence.
