Description

MOVIN’ & GROOVIN’ – Hebrew conversation through movement and expression.

Do you want your kiddo to begin chatting in Hebrew? Do you want them to learn to make new friends - in Hebrew? In this class, we’ll use movements and actions to help us chitchat with new friends as well as with some interesting puppets and characters. We’ll share things we like to do. We might even talk to a gorilla who likes to fly or a fish who likes to dance. Knowledge of Hebrew decoding is not necessary. All vocabulary will be shared in both Hebrew and English transliteration.

  • Class 1: Learn to introduce yourself in Hebrew and ask/answer simple questions such as “How are you?” You might be asking a snowman how it is doing in the hot summer!
  • Class 2: “What do you like?” Discuss different actions that you might like doing. What about a zebra? Does it like to fly?
  • Class 3: “What do you want?” Do you want that big, blue ball or that yummy pizza? Learn how to ask for it! Plus, we’ll put all the words and phrases together and create short stories or skits.
Requirements
In this class, we will be moving. Have enough space that you can turn around.
Supply List

Paper, pen, markers or crayons, small whiteboard, and whiteboard markers.
