Kindergarten Hebrew Blog

By in

Its been a lovely start to the new semester!

I am so glad to have the opportunity to teach and learn with your children every morning!

We have mentioned that our Hebrew learning has been structured around the letters of the Aleph Bet. By doing this, we are using our daily conversations, books, vocabulary and activities to emphasize a different letter each week! We are also becoming acquainted with the sounds each letter makes and the correct way to write them. This will pave the way for a quicker and smoother start to their official Hebrew reading and writing learning which we start in first grade.

In our last blog we left off at the letter א. Since then, we finished off our א week with a fun song about אני-I\Me- that the kids absolutely loved! You can listen to it and play it for them here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rwSCm-bcVwQ

אבל אני תמיד נשאר אני-But I always remain me…

For letter ב we spoke about the task of the ב in the Hebrew language. ב is added before a word to indicate placement withIN something or someplace. We used the words בית\בית ספר\בחוץ -All ב words!-to demonstrate and practice this. We forcused on the words בן\בנים and בת\בנות. Girl (s) and Boy(s).

Lastly, we learned the verb and command בוא, which means come. You can listen to our ב song here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z7UonyfULZA

We choreographed a dance and played lots of games to help us use and internalize the different ב topics!

For the letter ×’, we learned about our גוף, bodies. The children’s artistic capabilities really came to light as we built and labeled our own paper dolls using the different body parts that we learned. Our Simon says song was also a huge hit! (unfortunately, is not found online.) I was tremendously impressed at how quickly the kids picked up the vocabulary words in this unit!

We also reviewed and reinforced words we know like גשם, גדול and גלידה.

Lastly, for ד we learned a handful of nouns and created a fun project/ game using those words. We used colored papers to create doors דלתות that would open and close. Behind each door, דלת, there was a different ד word that the child chose. The most popular choices were דגל דג  דוב, דבש, and דבורה.

We conduct our class fully in Hebrew (except for cases of great need) and your children are getting great at picking up the cues and learning what re-occurring phrases and instructions mean.

I am so proud of our Kindergartners!

All the best,

Morah Yonit
