It is very user friendly and flexible-the program even includes a practice page for reading practice of any combination of letters and vowels, and you can print any page from the entire program! The colorful, 3-D graphics, captivating sound, and superb animation will attract and engage youngsters. Yet, behind the flexibility and fun, the program teaches reading in a very organized and systematic way.
Alef Bet Adventure is divided into three main sections:
There are also two bonus sections in this program:
Based on the renowned Hebrew reading book "Veshinantam", and on the advice of leading educators. Each of the letters of the Alef Bet is taught individually with five learning sections for each letter by itself. In other words, the program does not continue on to the next letter, until every aspect of each letter has been covered, such as its name, shape and the sound it makes. Also, each letter is reviewed with the previous letters that were taught, and compared with similar letters that were previously learned. Only after the child is fully familiar with the letter, and has reviewed the letter together with all the previous letters, is the program ready to move on to the next letter.
The same systematic structure is followed in the Vowel section of the program. Each of the vowels is presented individually, with ten distinct learning sections for each new vowel taught - each one with its own unique exercise. The program mixes the vowels together with the letters and constantly reviews the old material together with the new. This approach has proven to be extremely helpful in teaching children to learn how to read.
