The Alef-Bet Review has been updated is now available for FREE DOWNLOAD from the site:http://jecc-jprayer.weebly.com/shma-and-its-blessings.html. However, the Poster Set is still available for purchase from the JECCMarketplace - http://www.jeccmarketplace.com/alef-bet-review-poster-set/. In addition, the JECC has also developed a 4 week Alef Bet Review for the year in which the Amidah is taught. It is also available for FREE DOWNLOAD from the jPrayer site.
This curriculum offers a Hebrew decoding review for students who have recently finished learning the Alef-Bet and can decode simple words. For most classes, this program will be used in the Fall after their primer-year, but for many it will be introduced after working with “Let’s Learn Hebrew Side-by-Side” [http://letslearnHebrew.org].
Included are seven LESSONS that integrate a review of Hebrew decoding skills, vocabulary from Hebrew Through Movement (for those working with the program), and a set of RESOURCE SHEETS for teacher use, the STUDENT PACKET, and a POSTER SET (for purchase).
This Hebrew review is based on the principle of sound-to-print – that students should generally hear Hebrew before being asked to decode the printed word. The lessons model an approach to teaching Hebrew decoding that may be applied to prayers and blessings.
Also check out the JECC’s teaching guide for the jPrayer: Sh’ma and its blessings. It was designed to follow this early-in-the-year review and uses the same teaching principles.
