In order to maintain the level of speed and accuracy in Hebrew reading, practicing during the long summer break is essential. We suggest a total of 30 minutes per week, which will assure that when your child retests for Aleph Champ at the beginning of the school year, they will maintain their rank and be ready to progress further.

Click on the appropriate color below to access the reading book necessary for your child’s homework.* Please fill out the homework form to indicate homework completion.

*Students should review the levels they have previously completed. For example: If I just passed to yellow, then my practice should be mostly from orange and some from white & red. If I am at the end of green, then I should be practicing primarily from green and yellow. 

We urge all parents to strongly encourage their children to do their homework consistently. Reading practice at home is an excellent tool to improve your child’s reading skills and keep you in touch with his/her progress.
