Christian Homeschooling is Different Than Sunday School

Teach the next crop of

Could you put Hebrew flashcards to work in your class? You can get about 100 cards, taken straight from the book of Jonah. Every child is familiar with the Jonah story, so starting begins without resistance. And the book of Jonah is one of the shortest books in the Bible. It’s not controversial, complicated, or boring. The Jonah Kit flashcards lead with small steps. Every item in the Jonah Kit moves the student in one direction: toward reading the book of Jonah in the original Hebrew.

Our method is best described as: accidental Hebrew for Christians, because most of the mental exercises are about stretching the student’s boundaries for learning. Follow the steps and reading Hebrew simply happens. Isn’t that how young children in Israel learn to speak Hebrew? No one forces them, and no one should force your children. Let them be drawn along by natural curiosity.

The Jonah Kit was inspired by the natural desire for play: Memorization: students test each other by guessing 100 Hebrew words from the book of Jonah. Peer reinforcement almost eliminates the need for adult supervision. The question is on the front of the card, with the answer on the back side. Winner keeps the cards answered correctly, the tester (fellow student) keeps all the cards answered incorrectly. Who has the most cards? Without realizing, the student is learning Hebrew--subliminally.
