To get students excited about reading, we use the Aleph Champ program to track progress with a karate-inspired system of advancing in levels. The colored Aleph Champ system helps children look forward to their goals and celebrate their successes. During Aleph Champ time, reading assistants visit a classroom with a basket prepared for your child, filled with activities, games and worksheets just for them. Based on ability and interests, some children may choose to focus more on conversational Hebrew and vocabulary, or on writing. 

One of the best ways to see major gains, is to read every day at home - even if it's for just 2 minutes! To motivate your kids to read at home, they can earn "Torah Tokens" for each page they read at home. Students can spend their "Torah Tokens" in the prize store! If your child is reading to you directly, please make sure to tally each page read (reading a page more than once is not only allowed, but encouraged, if extra practice is needed). Each page read = one Torah token earned. 

If you'd like to set up a regular time for your child to read over zoom with one of the morahs, please text Chava at 414-439-4041.

Your child should come home with reading worksheets, but if you misplaced them or didn't get one, please use the links below to find all the reading pages you need:
