K to Grade 3 - Vancouver Talmud Torah

K to Grade 3

The aim of the primary program is to enable each student to develop one’s core academic skills in Reading, Writing, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. While core subjects are taught by a homeroom teacher, specialist teachers introduce the primary student to Art, Physical Education, Music, and Information Technology. In some cases this means that the student moves to other instructional rooms. In Judaic studies, students learn in a Hebrew immersion environment where Jewish rituals, customs, holidays, and values are delivered through the TaL AM curriculum.

Students are also given opportunities to participate in storytelling and discussion groups. All of these activities are designed to assist the student in developing one’s organizational skills, listening skills, social skills, and ability to work in group-based situations. Throughout the year, students also have access to guest speakers, curriculum-inspired field trips, theme days, intramural sports, and outdoor education.
