The personal learning network for educators
We teach a Hebrew immersion program to our students in grades 1-4 for half a day. I was noticing that our fourth grade students could not take a Hebrew root word and conjugate it into past tense. I was told that, that particular skill is too hard and students learn pronouns like I, He , She etc. by hearing the words used in a sentence or story. However they should be able to do matching type activities.
I was wondering if in fact having students conjugate verbs and make up a sentence is too hard for fourth graders to do with a second language
