Purim Explorations
z
To introduce Purim to the class, we decided to play dress up and create our own characters through traditional Purim costume materials such as scarves, triangular hats, crowns, tiaras, beads, masks, puppets, and even some noise makers. The children laughed and smiled as they put on their silly costumes and then shared with the class who they had transformed into.

Costumes!!!!

Joyce told us the story of Purim in preparation of creating our own class Megillah. She acted out the story, changing costumes and voices for each character. After her elaborate and detailed story, the children retold what they remembered and we documented their words. Next week we will use these words in our own Megillah as we illustrate the story!

Story Telling with Joyce

Today we learned two new letters of the Aleph-Bet. Chet makes the “ch” sound like “Chanukah” and “Challah” and tet makes the “t” sound like “Tap” and “Tooth Fairy!”

Who Were We ?z

Celia: A fairy. I fly. I’m just a regular fairy. Ellie: A princess. She went to a party with her beads. Her name is Sophia. Bret: I am a tooth fairy. When kids are sleeping I get their teeth! Max: I am a King. King Josh! I rule my kingdom very good, but usually the ones who are very

good are bishops but mine are not very good. They are naughty. But my knights do some work too and don’t play all day. Zoe: I am also a princess. Zoe the Princess! Shayna: I am a pirate princess. I got lost on the ocean. I was never found...lost for ever. Theo: I am a superhero who rules the world. Even though it does not sound like he rules the world, he does.
