Hebrew Through Movement Learning

Students in Kindergarten through 6th Grade participate in a weekly 20-minute lesson of the Hebrew Through Movement program. Hebrew Through Movement is taught by a trained specialist, and focuses on foundational Hebrew vocabulary though a language acquisition strategy in which students learn Hebrew by hearing and responding to Hebrew commands. This curriculum is based on ways that children learn naturally:
1. They learn by moving about and doing.
2. They learn in an environment of positive emotional support.
3. They learn when they feel safe from the embarrassment of not knowing.
4. They learn when they can move forward at their own pace.
5. They learn best when learning is joyful and playful.
6. They learn through songs, chants and rhythmic activities.
