Hebrew Language Acquisition
We incorporate a spiral curriculum which builds upon a solid foundation of Hebrew language skills. We use an Ivrit B’Ivrit Immersion approach teaching Hebrew as the language of our heritage in both text and conversation. We appeal to all the senses and learning styles using music, gaming, art, visual and audio tools, technology, collaborative group projects, and problem-solving models to cultivate and acquire Ivrit. We are always at the forefront of new innovative curricula and have successfully piloted and implemented several progressive Ivrit language arts programs: the Tal Am program for our primary grades (1-5), and B’shvil Ha’Ivrit program for our middle school grades (6-8).
The Tal Am program is an innovative Ivrit language arts program in the primary grades, which allows for individualized, tailored, and paced learning experiences. Our students and educators benefit greatly from the real-time student progress data the program collects to tailor our instruction.
In the Middle School, we have worked with the creators of the B’shvil Ha’Ivrit (formerly Neta) to incorporate the emerging digital platform of the program which provides ample opportunities for differentiation, remediating, reviewing, enriching, and expanding Ivrit learning opportunities for our students.
