Our Kindergarten class is introduced to Hebrew Reading through games, crafts, songs,and stories. Each letter and vowel takes on a fun ‘personality’ which is used as a meansto help the child remember the letter’s shape and sound. As we slowly integrate lettersand vowels, our students learn the patterns of Hebrew, and how to sound short words.We use multiple strategies, thereby accommodating all types of learners.
Younger division ALEPH CHAMP
Aleph Champ, modeled after the Karate Martial Arts system of motivational coloredlevels, breaks up the Hebrew reading process into bite sized motivational levels whichmakes it more kid friendly and exciting.
Students start as a white Aleph Champ learning half of the aleph bet. Each Aleph Champ level has a color coded book, flashcards, workbooks and a medallion which isawarded once a level is passed. All of these work together to create the motivationneeded to progress in their own way.
older division ALEPH CHAMP
The older division Aleph Champ is run similarly to the younger division. The students are learning at their own pace rather than together as an entire grade. The older division uses workbooks and has a slightly longer period for Aleph champ.
