Today in class we worked on:
9/18 –
1. We start off looking at the Yellow Box on top of the lesson page. We check off what’s new. Review the three letters: Mem (m-sound), Shin (sh-sound) and Final Mem (m- sound), which is found at the end of the word. We learned three vowels, with the saying sound AH, and found under the letter.
2. We read ALOUD pages 6-7 using the “favorites” game. We learned that it is important to read ALOUD to be able to hear ourselves and sound out words.
3. We practiced writing out new words and letters on page 7. The students did so well.
4. Make new Key Words: Shamash (Helper & Sh-Am (there).
5. We enjoyed playing the game Aleph Shuffle students had a lot of fun, ask your student to show you how to read Hebrew (right to left).

1. Parents can help their child even if they don’t know Hebrew, since the English is on the back of the flashcards.
