Ot la-Ba’ot, our innovative primer, teaches Hebrew decoding skills by maintaining and building an active Jewish and modern Hebrew vocabulary. Using Ot la-Ba’ot in class and the Ot la-Ba’ot Home Workbook at home, students will have all the tools to be successful Hebrew readers.

Ot la-Ba’ot is a full-color 174-page book. Also available: Ot la-Ba’ot Home Workbook in print or script, a teacher’s guide, 240 flash cards, vocabulary posters, letter flash cards, a training video and a parent introduction.

Ot La-Ba’ot: A Better Hebrew Primer offers students and teachers a variety of learning modalities and skill building opportunities.

There is a new review app available for Ot la-Ba'ot for Tablets. You can find the app by using your phone or Tablet and going to the Apple app Store or Android Play store on your device and searching for the key word otlabaot.

Key features include:

  • Hebrew Key Words. Each letter is introduced with three to five Hebrew key words that come from "the vocabulary of Jewish life." These words include Torah, Hallah, Shofar and Etrog; connecting basic Jewish literacy to Hebrew acquisition.
  • Daber Ivrit Units Ten oral language units build a connection between Hebrew and Eretz Yisrael.
  • Siddur Words. Throughout the book are Siddur Words exercises, which become mechanical reading practice using key pieces from the prayerbook and the Haggadah.
  • Mahir Stories. Ot la-Ba’ot is hosted by a bilingual dog named Mahir who tells us the story of Eliezer Ben Yehudah, the father of the modern Hebrew language. Students learn the story of the rebirth of the Hebrew Language and about its importance to the Jewish people.
  • Fun Exercises.Ot la-Ba’ot is filled with races, puzzles, and games. The book is carefully paced, alternating mechanical reading exercises with fun things to do.

    • Home Workbook.Ot la-Ba’ot has been designed with its own home workbook. Each class lesson is paired with a two-sided page to be completed at home and returned to the classroom. Each exercise, which should take no more than 15 minutes, can be completed by parent and child together and enable parents (even those who have not learned to read Hebrew previously) to be successful.
    • Family Website. The website has the answers to exercises for children to correct their homework, as well as a user-friendly audio program that sounds out words and phrases.
    • Parent Introduction.This sixteen-page booklet for parents includes a full vocabulary list, a Hebrew letter chart and a short introduction to help parents understand how best to help their children with the homework assignments.
    • Essential Tools—Flashcards, Posters, Teacher’s Guide, and Training Video. Ot la-Ba’ot has been carefully engineered to both provide maximal support and to allow for total creativity. The book has been carefully paced for two varied forty-five minute teaching blocks a week. There are flashcards, posters, activities and resources—everything a teacher could want. A detailed and extensive teacher’s guide, enhanced by a training video, makes objectives and opportunities clear.
