I am not sure if you're familiar with Yoni - he is the one who draws pictures in Hamodia and all the Kids Speak pictures are from him
He sells his pictures (about 6000) on a cd to schools - once the school has bought one cd all teachers have permission to use it (not like esky where each teacher needs their own) Pictures range from Parshas Hashavua to Yomim Tovim and general
He also has a search engine to make it easier to find what you want.
Most of his pictures are really good for the use of older pupils, i.e. esky is more for 3-7 years old but Yoni can be used easily for up to 12 years old.
Attached are the target guides (for teachers) and the targets that I referred to in my earlier reply (reply #8).
In our Junior Dept of our Primary school (7-11 year old) we noticed that the level of kriah in older classes was not satisfactory and for the past 2 years we have been using the following method:
We do kriah 10 minutes a day after davening. We do kriah as "tehillim" i.e. we say tehillim but it is also used as kriah practice.
A girl says 2 psukim, the class hten says the next possuk, and another girl again 2 psukim etc.
Each class gets "target-cards". Each girl starts by target 1 at the beginning of each year. When a girl meets that target four times in a row she can go onto the next target.
The targets start with very basic kriah rules and then get more difficult e.g. the shvo no rules etc. When a girl moves onto the next target she has to keep all the previous targets plus the new one in order to get a tick. When a girl has met all her targets (usually about half way through the year) the targets then are met only if she improves fluency.
What we have found is a)girls barely make mistakes anymore, they really improve in their accuracy but b) their kriah slows down a lot as they try hard to meet their target. This is why it is necessary towards the end to make targets for fluency.
We have seen great improvement with those classes which consistently kept to this system
We have a whole list of targets to meet - if anyone is interested i'm happy to provide them with further instructions.
where i came from there was no such thing as children being taken out during lesson for one to one. i just dont' know how everyone kept up, i guess through private lesson after school hours. now here in england it's accepted practice. i find it difficult as teacher bc. the pupils taken out miss other things in that time and then need catching up on that..........it;s really frustrating. on the other hand as a mother i see my daughter being taken out and she loves it.
