Aleph Champ

Our Hebrew School is proud to use the Aleph Champ Reading Program. Based on the martial arts philosophy of colour-coded levels and testing, the Aleph Champ program provides motivation and inspiration for students to succeed at their own pace. Children begin with the white level, practicing the first half of the aleph-bet and move through the ten levels, ending with reading fluently.

Below, please find the break-down of the levels so you can see your child’s progress.  Children are tested several times a year and move up a level whenever ready. At the end of the year we celebrate the children's progress at our Closing Ceremony (per calendar)

We are happy to provide review pages if your child is motivated to practice at home during the week.
