The vowels are found under the letter. We read ALOUD pages 6-7 using the “favorites” game. The book goes along with a computer program which will be provided to you by Rabbi Prass. Once your child is set up on the program. I will be able to track their progress. Your child will receive a homework sheet each week. Please look for it.
