Judaic Characters Emotional Intelligence Poster
Eytan Oren, M.A.T. and Debby Kinman-Ford, M.S. ED
Classroom poster of emotions using characters from the Torah. Each poster is accompanied by a handout explaining the correlation between that character and the emotion used.
Designed to be used in a morning meeting environment, each character’s story is introduced throughout the first half of the school year so that children learn the torah stories behind the characters while learning about each emotional trait at the same time. The second half of the year it moves to a launching point for conversation about which character each child feels most like that day. The poster becomes a conversation starter for how everyone is feeling while expanding their emotional intelligence vocabulary. Some characters are placed with different emotions than one might expect to give even young children a wider perspective on the personalities of these famous Torah characters.
Jewish Nature Program
This nine-part program is designed for organizations to use to create a family program for adults with young children. It takes the simplest form of growing a singular plant first and expands throughout the program to growing a full garden as it weaves Judaism into its fabric. This program is wonderful for helping families with young children explore their Judaism together and take it to the next level. Learning the connection between Judaism and agriculture, allows families to see nature through an authentically Jewish lens.
