Do you see any differences this year because of our workshop?
We are using the Words of Wisdom program that we developed after your workshop with amazing success. My class mastered 175 words in Parshas Terumah to the point that they asked me to test them on all 175 words. All but 3 boys achieved perfect or near perfect scores (171 correct or >). 2 > 90. 1 fail… We know where we need to focus our resources. All this with less than 8 minutes per day invested in reviewing the wordbank. In fact there has been a net gain of class time as they are saying the Pesukim faster and have > attention span for Pesukim. Additionally I can now have 5 boys say each passuk in the time I used to have 3 say a passuk.
We are using it religiously in 4 classrooms in Chaim Berlin. One more of our Rebbeim is trying 1/week as he acclimates to using a computer. It is being used in our resource room. A Rebbi is using it in Torah Temima. One more in another Yeshivah. Several Yeshivos have expressed interest.
We have also printed Flashcards from the words and they are being used in 4 additional classrooms. We are giving a weekly Milim Quiz on the first grade words to our 2nd graders <6 boys out of 80 are scoring below 90%.
