Sarah and David
Thanks to a recommendation from Adventures in MamaLand, I got the beginning series of Sarah and David for Froggy. When I got the materials in the mail, I was extremely disappointed. The Alef-Bet storybook was cute but there were no activities to do with it. The cd is the book being read verbatim. The reading primers follow the same basic formula as all the other primers I have seen with repetitive nonsense syllables.
And Froggy loves it all.
We listen to the cd in the car. She loves the funny descriptions of the letters. I do not know if they are helping her remember the differences but it is making studying the letters fun for her. With all the battles we had with sounding things out in English, I thought the primers would be a battle but Froggy cannot wait to get to them. She is sounding out syllables and loving it.
This is never going to make her fluent in Hebrew but maybe if she is a confident reading with vowels early enough she will be able to find a way to become fluent when she is older.
