Reading: Students will know that they correctly read the Hebrew letters/vowels when the combination sounds like a word in English. Each sheet carries a different theme to help with the context of the word.
Thinking/Writing: Students are then challenged to write their own English-in-Hebrew words in that theme, which fosters a deeper level of learning.
Note: These words are not actual Hebrew words, but used as a basis to teach phonetics. It is important to note to the students the difference between actual Hebrew vocabulary and English-in-Hebrew words. If desired, the worksheets can be used as a basis to compare Hebrew vocabulary to the fictional words. The worksheets also may be used as the basis for a discussion that certain letter sounds appear in English that are not in Hebrew and vice versa.
I use this packet for homework, and guess the students’ words aloud at the start of each class. There are 10 worksheets and the other 5 pages include the answers and the 6th is the cover sheet. Set #1 includes Body Parts, Boys' Names, Girls' Names, Colors, Clothes, Things That Are Red, Musical Instruments, Things That Are Loud, Things That Are Yellow, and Things You Find in the Jungle.
