NOW AVAILABLE: Hebrew Reading / Alef-Bet Lapbook!

image 

I wish we’d had a lapbook like this when Naomi and I started doing alef-bais two years ago.  But we didn’t, and we managed anyway.  I think this lapbook is also very suitable for “older beginners” – kids who know a bit more than she did, at 4 years old, and who are actually interested in studying ABOUT Hebrew, whether they’re Jewish or not.

Some basic information:

The Hebrew language is relevant and meaningful for homeschoolers of any religion who want to understand the origins of the English alphabet, the beginnings of the Torah (Jewish Bible) or the modern State of Israel.  This lapbook is perfect for a short unit study on the Hebrew alphabet and reading Biblical or Modern Hebrew.  It's also a great way to find out if kids might be interested in continuing their Hebrew studies using software or textbooks.

0) Alef-Bet Lapbook CoverThis lapbook includes a short guide to "Teaching the Alef-Bet", with helpful web links, along with the following 13 mini-books ready for you and your child to fill in together:

Ancient Auction Secret: If Chinese auctions are racist, why do Jews love them so much?

Ah, Jews, Jews, Jews, Jews.  You sure do love your Chinese auctions, don’t you? It seems that even in an era of political correctness, within certain circles, this term just will not die . And frankly, I’m mortified. I’m not Chinese, but I have family who is Chinese.  Some are Korean, as well.  I guess this makes us more ethnically diverse than many Jews, but I suspect most Jewish families are moving in this direction.  Still.  Even if we don’t know a single Chinese person, we should still stop calling it that. First of all… is it actually racist to call it a Chinese auction? I figured I’d let Chinese people decide.  But when I turned to Google to find out how Chinese people feel about Chinese auctions, what I found was mostly… nothing.  Silence.  I did find some debate (presumably among non-Chinese people) over whether it was too far in the direction of political correctness to refer to these as a “silent auction” or (as in some parts of the States) a “tricky tray.”  (Ok
