We are so excited that it is Adar, the Hebrew month when the holiday of Purim is! It is such a happy month as well! The yeladim got dressed up as different characters in the Purim story and put on a play in the kitah while in the “castle”. We had such an amazing time acting out the story of Megillat Esther! They really are ready for Broadway!
During circle time we reviewed the four mitzvot of Purim. The yeladim know that one of the mitzvot is listening to the Megillah in Shule. We are supposed to hear every word so we have to be very quiet. The only time we can make noise is when we hear Haman’s name. That is when we will shake our Ra’ashan (grogger). We started making our groggers this week. The yeladim each picked their own container to decorate. We decorated the containers with pretty shiny squares. Then each child picked their own Purim character to make their grogger. They had a choice of Esther, Haman, Mordechai and King Achashveirosh. Wait until you see who your child picked!?
Based on what they picked the yeladim ‘dot dotted’ (with dot paints) a coffee filter that will be part of their character’s outfit. Cannot wait to see how these turn out!
Thank you to Noach’s Mommy for coming in and being our Library guest.
And the week continues……..
