Snow Day Masmidim - Video
This is a very nice video. This Rebbe apparantly convened his class on a conference call to learn Chumash on a snow day.
Our son's school has an amazing program that is announced on the snow hotline whenever there's a snow day. It's called something like "Snow Day Masmidim." All boys grades 1-8 have the opportunity to earn one raffle ticket for a big prize the next day. For every fifteen minutes that the yingel learns, he will get one entry into a major raffle. He just has to bring in a note from his parents about how many fifteen minute blocks he learned for. It's so beautiful. And then afterward, they post a huge poster showing a graph of how many hours each class collectively learned to encourage the boys for the next time. It's awesome!
