Product Description

Instead of another worksheet, play this fun, bodily-kinesthetic activity while learning the Hebrew alphabet. With a magic show theme, anyone can use this activity, but specifically, Sunday school teachers who need fun, hands-on activities that encourage students to learn Hebrew and come to Hebrew school.

The cards and pages are fairly generic and not too "babyish" for any age level, even for a casino-going-card-game-loving adult who wants to learn Hebrew. Each page looks like playing cards on a brown, wooden table backdrop. This is meant to help soften the background for dyslexic readers, and others who find a white page too stark, bright, and visually glaring, which interferes with reading and their learning.

Young learners would love to hold a magic wand to tap the Hebrew letters and say, "Presto!" Use either a store-bought wand, or hand-made from a hardware store dowel, or a print out from this file taped to a ruler. If you have the capabilities, I would think you could use a laser printer to print 8.5x11 sticker/label sheet so that you can stick the wand image to a ruler or paint stirrer.

Low Prep activity: Instead of printing, cutting, and gluing individual letters to display - simply print the pages from this file. After that, you can choose whether you lay them on the floor, glue pages to a poster board or butcher paper, or tape them to your white board.

I have two sizes of letters for you to choose, depending on your available wall or floor space. When the caller/teacher calls out a Hebrew letter, one student uses a "magic" wand to tap the letter on the display. Add extra excitement by having teams compete against each other, or another class. Students will love that they got out of their seats and raced against another student. Learning the alef bet will actually be engaging and fun!

Besides the "Presto Alef Bet-O!" activity, the caller's cards do double duty for a game of Go Fish or Memory as well. 3 games for the price of 1!

The activity is designed to be used as an on-going learning activity, as students learn more and more Hebrew letters, and is a great culmination activity at the end. I grouped every eight letters onto two 8.5x11 pages. So, when students are learning the first eight letters, you don't need to print out the entire file (just pages 1 and 2). The second eight letters are on pages 3 and 4, etc...

This file is designed for foreign language teachers (even at the high school level), Hebrew Day school teachers, Hebrew School teachers, ‎and those who home school. The cards are generic, not limited to a specific age group, holiday, or season.
