Actions

Two of the many ways to use Dikduk LEGO:(1) The teacher says a verb in English, and students race to build that verb in Hebrew. (Works best when the pieces are color-coded so that with a quick scan of the room, the teacher can assess each student’s grasp of the material.) (2) Students make a list of color pairings. Using their LEGO, they build those combinations & write a list of the translated verbs. Students trade lists and see who can convert the list of verbs into the correct color pairings.

Resources

Supplies: LEGO pieces – rectangular and square bricks in a variety of colors; labels on which to write segments of Hebrew verbs; ziplock bags in which to keep each student’s set of LEGO pieces.
The teacher prepares a set of LEGO pieces for each student. On the rectangular bricks, stickers of shorashim are applied; on square bricks, stickers of rosh or sof mila are applied (depending on whether past or future tense is being practiced.)

Description

Using LEGO pieces to which stickers with verb segments have been attached, students practice dikduk by literally “building” verbs. Students dislike the boring, repetitive drills that normally accompany conjugating verbs. The unique, hands-on activities that can be used with these LEGO pieces provide a much-needed respite from writing verb lists. Students are fully engaged and motivated to learn dikduk, which translates into improved, more sustained learning.
