We are so excited to announce that iTaLAM has come to 5th Grade!! Now your students can enjoy the latest educational technology and modern teaching methods when learning Hebrew. iTaLAM introduces digital components and gamification which serve to provide an engaging, interactive and multisensory experience for students. This platform includes online games, songs, interactive stories, and fun activities. Students are encouraged to delve into the material and contribute in a creative capacity both in the classroom and at home.
The main features of iTaLAM include:
iTaLAM 5 advances Hebrew communication along with Jewish heritage studies, and provides students with advanced language and thinking skills. The students from the virtual classroom, who are familiar from previous years, accompany students throughout the year, while simultaneously integrating photo stills, new characters, and pictures and videos of Israeli children. It is possible to teach iTaLAM 5 to students who have not studied the previous iTaLAM grades.
The topics covered are as follows:
The content track HaOlam Shelanu is intended for students in grades 3-5, and its goal is to strengthen language skills and reinforce Hebrew communication. This track includes units on various topics from daily life, such as food, clothes, and numbers. In each unit there are experiential activities and games, which assist the students with the acquisition of vocabulary and linguistic skills needed for communicating the materials studied – orally or written.
The activities in each unit are adapted to each grade: An activity with a low difficulty is intended for students in grade 3 (kita gimmel), a medium-difficulty activity is intended for students in grade 4 (kita daled), and a high-difficulty activity is intended for grade 5 (kita hey). However, it is up to the teachers to decide which activities to open for their students (in grades 3, 4, and 5) according to their abilities.
