This is a great game to practice reading! It can be used to identify Hebrew letters, read sounds, translate Hebrew words, or read a line of text. The game can be adapted easily to fit the correct level of difficultly for your students. In addition to the gameboard, you will also need: dice, pawns, and EITHER flashcards, words in Hebrew, a page with lines of Hebrew, etc (this depends on the level of your students).
I generally laminate the game-boards so that they can be used over and over.
1. Divide class so that everyone is playing in a group of four or less. Each group gets a game-board.
2. Each player should put a pawn on “START”.
3. The first player reads in Hebrew. If they read correctly, then roll a die and move that number of spaces either clockwise or counterclockwise around the bull's eye. When a player lands on a red section, move in one ring closer to the center. Stay in each ring until you land on red.
4. Play passes to each player. Each player goes in turn until someone reaches the “Star of David” in the center.
