Hebrew Resources for Summer

Here are suggestions for keeping Hebrew fresh over the summer.

So much of what we accomplish over the school year slips away during those 3+ months without class.  Here are some suggestions for keeping Hebrew fresh over the summer:

Hebrew apps

Your kids are clamoring for screen time anyway!

**We highly recommend the Shalom Hebrew app, available for purchase here. **

Alternatively, the following apps were free downloads last we checked:

  1. Ma Kore
  2. Aleph-Bet Schoolhouse
  3. Alefbet OTG
  4. Alef Bet HD
  5. Hebrew Flashcards
  6. Prayer Player
  7. Alphabet
  8. ShowMe.

Other Suggestions

  1. Make blessings and tefillah (prayer) part of your family routine. It’s not only a good way to practice Hebrew, it also bring mindfulness to the routines of the day.
    • Click here for a colorful chart with the blessings before and after meals and for Friday night.
    • The shma is a traditional part of the bedtime routine. It can be found on page 101 of the blue siddur. What a gentle way to tuck-in at night!
  2. Buy a set of Hebrew flashcards, or a Hebrew placemat.  Practice the aleph-bet at meal time.  While the ads are running on a video, turn down the volume  and run through the aleph-bet.  These cards include the vowels.  These have the names of the letters written in transliteration on the back.

Several teachers have sent home workbooks that they were using in class.  Keep working on those books over the summer!
