I like to teach the vowels FIRST. This is because often people have a mental block about the vowels for some reason, and so tackling the vowels right off the bat shows the students (kids AND adults) how easy they really are. First, I give the students a fun clue to help associate the sound of each vowel with its shape or pattern. Then, once they can remember those sounds (and that's not hard--after all, each wheel only has 7 vowels, plus there are a couple more not on the wheels), I take a random card and say something like, "Ok. This is a BET. It says 'B.' When you read Hebrew, you say the sound of the letter and then the sound of the vowel below it. So if BET says 'B,' then THIS (pointing to the BET plus the "ee" vowel) says 'BEE'; then THIS (turning the wheel counter-clockwise to the next vowel) says 'BOO' . . . ." and so on. Then I switch letters and go through the whole wheel with another consonant. After several letters, the students usually have learned the vowels pretty well.Read more ›
They are a bit big but that is wonderful because my daughter can see it clearly. The only card I didn't like was the Lamed, it looks a bit crushed.
Some reviewers were complaining that the back doesn't have the information you need as the teacher to know what the student is looking at or if you are using them to study for yourself. My solution to that, (shown in the picture), I took the time to write it in the back with different color Sharpie's and it came out great! So when I turn the wheel I can tell the student what it is without me having to look at the front.
Also, the wheel part is a lot more hidden than what you see on the actual box, which to me is great since the other vowel marks won't confuse the student.
The flashcards are very sturdy, which is nice for a lot of use. And before I forget to mention, they also have the Final Sofit letters!
I'm thinking of getting a 2nd box to use for making words since they already have the vowel marks.

Cards are a great idea and addition to whatever you are doing to learn Hebrew. But they are not stand alone. Maybe that needs to be said. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Robin Mokry
Perfect for someone who already knows the sounds of the letters. I was able to write the sounds on the back of each card but it would be a great addition to have a sheet of paper... Read morePublished 6 months ago by Kaylene Dongell
