I am a learning Rebbe for a day camp. they are a group of 8 wild second graders who can`t stay in their seats I need ideas besides learning Chumash and daveningJuly 4, 2013 3:17 pm at 3:17 pm #964286popa_bar_abbaParticipant
Sure. I can help.
Tell them lots of stories. Play lots of games. Particular, play games that involve getting up and running around or at least movement at the table.
Forget about learning–2nd grade kids don’t need to be learning for 1 or 2 hours a day while in camp. They learn quite enough in school all year. Forget about davening–2nd grade kids don’t know enough to daven.
I suppose if you really must, you can occasionally play a game that involves chumash vocabulary and dikduk. (Seriously, teach them pre-fixes and suffixes if you can.)July 4, 2013 3:23 pm at 3:23 pm #964287☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant

I once subbed limudei kodesh. They liked some more of the epic narratives in Nach.July 7, 2013 5:01 am at 5:01 am #964292sharpMember
Children this age really love to listen to stories. And lots of them.
I really believe children this age should run around more. They shouldn’t have to sit and learn so much in camp. Come on, these kids are really little.July 7, 2013 5:02 am at 5:02 am #964293sharpMember
Bad joke.July 7, 2013 5:08 am at 5:08 am #964294seventytotheOneMember
You should set up a list of a few good steps, positive reinforcement steps, that leads to better and better prizes (extra play time, slush, story, etc.) as well as negative steps, that lead to them staying home. Make a big deal out of each step; be energetic before they are. If not you will just turn into a shmattah trying to keep their interest. Good Luck!July 7, 2013 5:41 am at 5:41 am #964295UtahMember
So then send them to the Head Counselor so that they get in trouble.July 7, 2013 7:26 am at 7:26 am #964296zeeshanaayan07Member
