I had the pleasure today to teach my Tuesday 2 small classes of 3rd grades the 3rd session in Hebrew. I introduced them to the letters Shin and Mem together with the "ah" vowel. And we had fun approaching this subject! We first learned how to pronounce the vowel, then add a letter and figure out the sound it makes. Then I taped on each one's forehead either a "shin", "mem" or a vowel and the students had to guess who they are by asking others what sound they make, are they a vowel, what kind of a vowel, etc. Last but not least we made letters by making a student who had a letter on his forehead pear up with another one who had a vowel, and the entire class had to guess what kind of a sound the letter makes. Boy it was fun!
