Instructors need teaching materials that are substantive AND
fun. Activities which students perceive as fun
will make Hebrew easy to learn and increase student
participation and excitement. The Think Zone offers a
series of simple, easy to read stories/booklets with
accompanying workbooks for individual practice. These
booklets offer children a fun way to learn how to read and
understand Hebrew. Hopefully an enjoyable learning
experience in the classroom will lead to a positive
connection with the language and with their Jewish heritage.
Once the children can read independently, the booklets will
enhance their reading comprehension. The Think Zone uses a
systematic approach in which each booklet level builds on
the level that preceded it.
The study of Hebrew should be fun! At The Think
Zone we want to encourage children to read Hebrew, enjoy
learning the language and eventually reach their full
potential as Hebrew speakers. The study of Hebrew is not an
end unto itself but, rather, a means to an important and
wonderful end - a deeper connection of the students to the
traditions of the Jewish people.
