We had such a great time at the fire station. It was so exciting to see where the fire fighters stay before they have to go on the truck. We loved looking the the trucks and we were able to walk around them and touch them.We gave them the cookies that we made, and they were so happy to receive them.
In this week’s Parsha Vayetzei, Yaacov felt that he needed to run away. He was very scared that his brother Aisav was going to hurt him. So he found a place to rest after walking such a long time. He put stones under his head, and fell asleep. While he was sleeping, he had a dream. A ladder was going all the way up to the Shamayim and melachim (angels) were going up and down the ladder. We actually brought a ladder into the kitah. The yeladim looked at it and realized that you can only go up and down a ladder. We practiced making a ladder with popsicle sticks on the table. Two vertical and then three horizontal. They then glued it on the construction paper. Yaacov was added and then we stuck moon and stars in the Shamayim.
We explained to the yeladim that we do not know what angels look like. So the pom poms on the white paper represent those melachim. Next week we will see what happens if Aisav comes to see Yaacov!
