North Shore Temple Emanuel
a Progressive Jewish Congregation
Students continue with the program, “A Time to Read”, as it enables students to acquire skills necessary to decode Hebrew accurately and with some fluency. There are 20 lessons, and after completion students should have the skills to decode almost any vocalized text in modern, biblical or Siddur Hebrew. More advanced reading skills are introduced later in the “Time to Pray” series. There is a variety of materials available to teach evaluate and reinforce. This program is effective with all learners – the highly skilled as well as the slow learners, and the difficult concepts are taught directly. Hebrew decoding is presented as a bridge to Siddur reading. We will then move on to Hebrew writing.
Our children in Year 4 use the supplementary Activity Book. This provides additional worksheets and reading practise, vocabulary review sheets, games and instructions and practice for writing script.
In addition, Year 4 students continue with the Jewish Studies program where they learn about principle Jewish values.
