The curriculum consists of 18 workbooks in six different themes: Family, the Seasons, Home, Animals, Hobbies, and Games.
Each theme is divided into three different workbooks that allow continuum learning. For example, under the subject of 'My Family', in the first booklet students can learn about the immediate family. In the second booklet, they will focus on different families' characteristics, the Hebrew calendar and its connection to the subject of family. In the third booklet, they will learn about the extended family and the relationship between different members.
You are welcome to select the themes and workbooks you would like to teach and your students would enjoy!

It is a privilege to me writing these few words about your books. I have been teaching Hebrew as a second language for the past 12 years, and in the recent five years at Irvine Hebrew Day School. Throughout the years, I worked with a variety of Hebrew activity books. However, with Ketty Granite's books, it is evident that the author of the book understands and knows the characteristics and cognitive level of the young students. It is goodly noted that a great deal of thought put into every aspect. In the book design, in choosing the various book topics, in the way the text presented, and in the specific images accompanied the text. The colorful pictures are very appealing, but their purpose does not end up as a decoration. They are meaningful and are an essential integral part of the text. The theme of each book incorporates various vocabulary and expressions that are related to the concept world of young students, and the topic develops from chapter to the next one smoothly. The students are passionate about doing different tasks, solving various puzzles, crossword, and answering questions following short paragraphs and stories.Anat V.

I can not say enough good things about Ketty. She is a thoughtful and astute academic whose energy and hunger to learn and grow is one of a kind. Ketty’s creativity can most recently be seen in her one of a kind Hebrew language curricular texts which are truly remarkable.”Dr. Doran Katz: Professor at The Hebrew School at Middlebury College
I was so excited to see the launch of Granite Hebrew. Until now there have been very few materials or aids available to assist teachers teaching in the proficiency approach. Teachers were always spending hours and scrambling to find to create worksheets to aid their students reading and writing skills. Granite Ivrit may present a solution to this. The lovely workbooks developed by Granite Ivrit not only relate to all of the modalities of language learning, they also present meaningful activities that relate to the students lives which are presented with beautiful graphics. I am certain that these books will be a tremendous boon for any Hebrew program as core workbooks or as supplements to what is already being taught.Elana Weinberg: Jewish/Hebrew educator and consultant with a focus on early childhood

"תכנית גרניט עברית מאפשרת למידה משמעותית וחווייתית. החוברות ברורות, פשוטות ובנויות בצורה הדרגתית ששמה את התלמיד במרכז. התכנים אותנטיים וקרובים לעולם התלמידים והם מגיבים בצורה מדהימה לתהליך הלמידה. החוברות מכוונות לשימוש בשפה והפעילויות בהן מעודדות תקשורת בין התלמידים. התלמידים מרגישים שהם מסוגלים להשתמש בה והסיפוק הזה נותן להם עוד מוטיבציה להשקיע ולהתקדם. במפגשי ההנחיה עם קטי קבלתי הדרכה ברורה ויסודית ושפע רעיונות שאני מיישמת בכיתה מדי יום. כאשר אני זקוקה לייעוץ או רעיון קטי זמינה ומלווה אותי בתהליך במקצועיות ואכפתיות רבה."Milka Beck: Westchester Day School, NY
