Welcome to 5th Grade Hebrew!
My name is Sarit Sabo. I was born and raised in Nahariya, Israel. I graduated from Bar Ilan University with B.A in Education, Jewish Philosophy and Hebrew Language. This will be my 8th year at Akiba and in Dallas. My husband Rabbi Sabo and I are both teaching the kids at Akiba and in the Dallas community.
Our goal is to instill within them a love and a strong connection to ISRAEL. The Hebrew/Ivrit language, the Jewish state and of course get them closer to the holy Torah!
Textbooks: Chaverim Be Ivrit
Using the teacher page you will be able to keep up to date with homework assignments and exams, and always to be able to see pictures of the wonderful things we are doing in class.

Homework: Students should be writing their homework daily in their planner/agenda to help them own the responsibility as well. I highly encourage all parents subscribe to the website to receive Hebrew updates. The Hebrew homework can be found in the Judaic binder behind the orange divider. This binder should accompany your child home each day and back to school the next morning. These binders are a critical part of the organizational skills they are developing.
Curriculum and Materials: Chaverim Be Ivrit is a Hebrew program based on the most current understanding of language acquisition in children and has been extensively field tested on children by treating Hebrew as a living language. Through age-appropriate stories, conversations, telephone conversations, poems, songs, albums, journals, bulletin board notices, and other child-centered activities, this unique curriculum pays special attention to the beyond-the-classroom interests and needs of students, allowing learners to transfer and apply their learning in new contexts and situations. The stories, selections from Jewish source texts, and excerpts from tefilla take into account contemporary Jewish identity development and diaspora Judaism, and are adaptable for diverse levels of learning
