Hey, all! I'm back from a hiatus from mothering and in a whole different place in life. Toby and Nomi have been in an Israeli (read: all-Hebrew) gan and are loving it! That being said, we have an issue going into next year. We are moving back to the states, and Toby will be the right age for First Grade. We have a few great public magnet school options, but I'm concerned about him retaining his Hebrew fluency without the ability to take Hebrew in the public schools. The Jewish Day School is unbelievably unaffordable.
I'm a full-time graduate student, but DH is looking at part-time work, and would be home whenever I am not, so we are considering homeschooling. I would keep track of curriculum and do language arts, social sciences, Hebrew, limudei kodesh (religious ed), and he would do math, science, music, and art. We're getting excited about the idea and coming up with some great eclectic resources.
Ok, so here's where you come in: I wanted some advice on mostly limudei kodesh and retaining Hebrew fluency ideas. I love Behrman House and will likely use some of their materials for religious school curricula, but what others are good? I also know about alef-bet coloring pages and stuff, but my kids are currently completely fluent (far beyond my skills) in Hebrew and I really really want them to keep those skills. Do you know about any kids' computer games/apps that work on Hebrew? We'll do plenty of Israeli videos, but I also want some of the language structure.
Thoughts? Help? TIA!
