The Kohelet Hebrew School kids show how it's done. It's nice because this tune includes the double letters.
Now, all of these learning videos are on their own pages, with charts next to them, and without the distraction of all the other youtube clutter, on my website, here: http://rafimetz.com/rmd/lea...
"Learn to Read Hebrew" - a 32 page booklet by Rafi Metz ~ Now Available ~ Add to what you learn here, and learn to read Psalm 23 and 121.
If this version is too fast, try one of the other two Basic-Letter videos ~ they are much slower and provide time to repeat each letter a couple of times.
Melody is an extremely effective mnemonic device, and is a perfect way to learn something like the Hebrew alphabet. It's not so daunting as an adult to learn foreign letters when children make it so fun and easy.
Whether the kaf comes before chaf or the other way around is irrelevant, the point is to learn the letters.
As for the sofit letters, it doesn't work to sing them with this tune, and with 5-6 year olds, just getting the basic 22 is enough of a learning curve at the beginning... I've got a videos posted here that explains the double letters thoroughly.
Best to everybody!
