The program includes a User's Manual and five Teacher's Guides, written in Hebrew, that provide enough material for two years of instruction. The User's Manual includes an introduction to Hebrew language instruction in early childhood, the program rationale and guidelines for working with the program as well as advice on how to incorporate festival vocabulary into the units of study.
Each teacher's guide is comprised of thirty to thirty five study units (lessons). The five guides include detailed instructions for every lesson and activity suggested.
Following is a sample of the content of each teacher's guide. It is important to note that "Chalav u'Dvash" is a spiral curriculum. Each lesson builds on the lesson/s that preceded it and incorporates all the language that has already been learned.
