Unique Teaching Method
The most common approach to teaching
Alef Bet is first to teach the names of
all the letters, and then to go on to
teach the sounds of all the letters,
etc. However, this approach can
sometimes be confusing to a child, who
will find it difficult to remember all
the letters at once, without having had
the opportunity to really get to know
each letter on its own.
Based on the renowned Hebrew reading
book "Veshinantam", and on the advice of
leading educators, Alef-Bet Adventure
has taken a totally different approach.
Each of the letters of the Alef Bet is
taught individually with five learning
sections for each letter by itself. In
other words, the program does not
continue on to the next letter, until
every aspect of each letter has been
covered, such as its name, shape and the
sound it makes. Also, each letter is
reviewed with the previous letters that
were taught, and compared with similar
letters that were previously learned.
Only after the child is fully familiar
with the letter, and has reviewed the
letter together with all the previous
letters, is the program ready to move on
to the next letter.
The same systematic structure is
followed in the Vowel section of the
program. Each of the vowels is presented
individually, with ten distinct learning
sections for each new vowel taught -
each one with its own unique exercise.
The program mixes the vowels together
with the letters and constantly reviews
the old material together with the new.
This approach has proven to be extremely
helpful in teaching children to learn
how to read.
