Welcome to my activities page!
Each week I post many activities that correspond with a Hebrew letter. This helps to enhance learning. Here is an example:
Understanding the letter ALEPH
 The students will learn the value of silence.
Activity 1 - Charades
Each child will recieve a word associated with the holiday Yom Kippur (ex. praying, flowers, walking, etc.)
They will then take turns trying to have their classmates guess the word they received.
The only restriction is that the child on stage with the word must be silent.   
Activity 2 - 5 Minutes' Peace 
Each child will sit without speaking. If a child talks then they are out of the game. This game shall last no more than five minutes. Young children find the very difficult.
There is a great story called Five Minutes' Peace by Jill Murphy that is great to read along with this activity.
Activity 3 - Find a Friend
First, print a single Hebrew Vowel on card stock paper using the pictures in my book Aleph Finds Her Voice.
Make them large enough to be able to hang around the child's neck and appear on their chest like Aleph.
Next, put the Hebrew letter Aleph on card stock paper using the pictures in my book.
Then, have each child, wearing one of the vowels or Aleph, say the sound they are wearing.
Finally, have each classmate walk up to another classmate and then call out their combine sound.
Have them switch and find a new friend.
