When mentoring our pre-service and in-service teachers we need to describe and model both research-based and clinically tested best practices. Accordingly, our mentees should know about reaching students by activating their senses or different learning styles.
On the chart below are sample activities designed to reach students by activating their senses or different learning styles.
Teaching About Pesach Through the Different Learning Styles
Sample Learning Activities
Seeing the Seder plate, the Seder table, and the Haggadot
Listening to the Maggid (e.g. the Story of the Exodus), and singing the Passover songs (e.g. Avadim Hayinu, Adir Hu, Dayaynu, Chad Gadya, etc.)
Searching for the chametz, and finding the afikomen
Holding the matzo
Tasting the wine, the maror (e.g. horseradish), and the charoset
Smelling the maror
On the next post we will begin our discussion of reaching students through their seven multiple intelligences.
