Parsha 4 Kids

Here is another great resource for learning parsha with kids.  Betty Ann Ross tries to bring Torah out of the school context and into everyday life.  If that's not applicable to homeschooling, I don't know what is!  In her own words,

"I am a Jewish educator who is passionate about helping students see Jewish wisdom as integral in helping us make meaning of life in the world in which we live. Jewish thinking is too valuable to be cooped up in a school setting. It needs to be part of everything we see and do. It needs to be the lens through which we view the world. IT NEEDS TO BE IMPORTANT!!"
"TORAH is filled with a lot of things - stories you may already know, like Noah and the Flood, and people you have probably heard of, like Moses.
Torah is also filled with ideas - big, meaningful ideas that are important within the Torah and also in your life. This is your chance to think about some of these BIG IDEAS, and to ADD YOUR VOICE to the voices of other kids who are thinking about some of these same things."
