Taught by a teacher with an MA in Jewish Studies, this beginner's level course is a fun introduction to the sights and sounds of the Hebrew alphabet! We usually cover around five or six letters each week, including final forms and phonemes (which I treat as separate letters). This class is meant to familiarize students with these letters and their sounds. Students should not expect to have them memorized in one week! Students may join in any week, and are welcome to continue in/repeat...
•. Students will become visually familiar with the letters of the Hebrew alphabet • Students will be introduced to the names of the letters of the Hebrew alphabet • Students will be introduced to the sounds made by the letters of the Hebrew alphabet • Students will have a chance to casually interact with peers around a shared learning goal • Students will practice using their listening skills and (time permitting) their speaking skills
I have an MA in Jewish Studies from the University of Indiana-Bloomington, and have completed several other academic Jewish Studies and Religious Studies classes, at the graduate level. This includes more than two years of Biblical Hebrew, as well as several classes in Modern Hebrew. I taught Hebrew school in person for several years. As a Hebrew school teacher, I have helped hundreds of students develop and improve their Hebrew reading skills, from the beginner level on. Although I have excellent Hebrew reading skills, I am not a fluent speaker of Modern Hebrew. Outschool is a secular platform, and this class takes an academic and secular approach to all topics.
Please bring the posted print outs to class each week ALONG WITH at least 3 (your choice which, more is fine) of the following materials to class each week: Play-doh or clay, pretzel sticks, pipe cleaners, legos, toothpicks, small blocks or three dozen pennies/coins. ***Please make sure these are materials that your students can handle safely, and will NOT swallow or otherwise use to injure themselves! Please provide supervision as needed.*** Please also bring crayons or markers, and some paper. Thank you!
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
There is no textbook for this class. Students will be asked to print out worksheets most weeks.
