Shalom Hebrew Primer
In this revision of Shalom Uvrachah Primer Express, students can quickly learn to decode Hebrew accurately and fluently. Ideal for learners who start Hebrew decoding in the later grades, just in time for bar or bat mitzvah, or who need remediation. Built on a foundation of key cultural words (shamash, tzedakah, mitzvah, mezuzah), with an emphasis on the chunking of syllables, and the inclusion of movement-based activities and many brand-new challenging reading exercises, Shalom Hebrew will motivate your pre-teens to learn to decode quickly and accurately.
