This week has been an exciting one filled with the beginning fun of Purim! This silly holiday gets a lot of attention from us in early childhood and the children use their imaginations when dressing up and playing with the castles. We have been telling the story of Purim using our felt board and throughout the week left the characters up to see if the class was interested in acting out the story. It was very entertaining to watch them go over to our felt board and reenact the Purim story with different friends playing different roles.
It is our pleasure to announce that the children have glued and hung up our 200-piece puzzle that they completed in less than a week working collaboratively! Please be sure to visit it in the classroom and observe the documentation that we have around it. The photos show your children strengthening their problem-solving skills, increasing communication and vocabulary with peers, and experiencing intrinsic motivation to accomplish what may at first seem challenging.
Thank you to Erin and Tannaz for coming in to help make the hamenstaschen dough that we will be using next week! The children are excited to make these cookies for themselves and we also had a conversation about mishloach manot and how it is a mitzvah to give food in a basket to someone in need, similarly to sova. The children brainstormed the people around campus who we say thank you to and help us throughout the year and we look forward to continuing the conversations about being kind to others and give to those in need.
