This product is a best seller. Call it aleph bet, alef bet, or aleph beis, students learn rapidly with this activity. It's engaging, effective, and fun!!
Hebrew is easy to learn when it is fun. Here is an "I Have Who Has?" game containing two different sets of cards for a slightly more challenging game. (Another product in my store prints the alphabet on just 4 pages, but it contain 2 sets of cards seen here - just one set.)
- Identify Hebrew alphabet (aleph bet / alef beis) going in alphabetical order.
- All students have a turn to identify a Hebrew letter on their card and ask someone else to identify another Hebrew letter.
- Identify Hebrew letters in a random order, so that no student knows which letter is coming next, which requires ALL students to be listening.
- Option to combine Set 1 and Set 2 in the same session, allowing students to have more than one card, more than one letter to identify, and more than one opportunity to participate, which will increase motivation and attention.
How To Use-
- Use this as practice or review for the whole class.
- Use as an on-going learning activityuntil the whole alphabet is learned.
- Use as a culmination activity after all letters are taught.
- Informal assessment.
- Give students more than one card when teaching smaller groups.
“I have…Who has? A Hebrew Alphabet Activity has become my class’ favorite activity. I watch the children’s faces and see how empowered they have become, not only learning Hebrew, but reading real English sight words on the cards as well. They feel so successful and it’s very apparent!” – Morah Chana, Aleph Bet Preschool Educator/Director and Chabad-Lubavitch Emissary
"The game was easy to use, instructions were clear, and the kids enjoyed it. They were so excited to play this game. In fact, when they had free choice center time to choose their own center, many of them wanted to play this game again. First, it started with three students, then it was five kids, and it grew to the whole class. It was a positive experience, reinforcement that they were successful at identifying the letters, and it allowed them to have a sense of achievement where they felt good about themselves. I think that is why they like it so much. It’s like they were thinking “I’m actually reading this and having fun.” It was so cool! I had to mix up the cards, play again and again,…They were learning good sportsmanship and to respect each other.” - Morah Robin, Teacher’s Aide
Hebrew Alphabet - I Have...Who Has? can be used by foreign language teachers, Hebrew Day School teachers, Hebrew School teachers, pre-K teachers, and those who home school.
- The cards are bright, colorful, and inviting.
- Since there are no pictures on the cards, they are generic, not limited to a specific age group, holiday, or season.
- Preschool and high school students will both enjoy this activity.
- This revised product has tinted backgrounds which help dyslexic and all readers be able to read better, by cutting down the glare.
The next step is learning to read with Kamatz and Patach vowels/nekudot. You can find the "I Have, Who Has" activities with vowels here: I Have Who Has - Hebrew Kriyah activities with nekudot (kamatz, patach, tseirei, segol, shva, cholam, kubutz, shuruk)
I also have another version with just the Hebrew alphabet, that saves on ink and paper, because it contains 8 cards per page instead of 6, allowing the whole Hebrew alphabet to be printed in just 4 pages. It is found here: Hebrew Alphabet - I Have Who Has? (only 4 pages)
GAMES GET RESULTS! Why? Brain-based games and activities are proven to engage the student and his/her brain through fun lessons and Multiple Intelligences. Brain-based learning makes more neural pathways and leads to better memory retention, which means less teacher time reteaching the same concepts. - Denise Urich
