Sharing our Ideas with Each Other

This week in Shorashim, we continued hearing our story from the book of שמות (Shmot-Exodus) together. Hearing the details again made us think about so many ideas and questions. Below is a conversation three and four year olds had about our story during כיבוד (kibud-snack).

Boy 1: I was surprised at the part about how the baby boys were gonna be killed!

Girl 1: But we have a baby brother at home and he didn’t get killed.

Girl 2: Maybe none of these stories are true.

Girl 1: But we have a history story at home and it is something that happened a very long ago but it’s still real. I think this story is like that.

Boy 2: Many ideas are not always true though.

Girl 1: Maybe the nurses didn’t listen to Pharaoh about killing the boys because he was bad and they were the good guys.

Girl 2: I have another question about the story. Is Pharaoh’s daughter bad? Because she’s the daughter of Pharaoh who is really bad but she still took care of baby Moshe.

We are so glad that we have so many weeks to explore this story together because we definitely have a lot of parts we want to keep thinking and talking about. In addition to having conversations about the story, we are also continuing to share our ideas through creation of materials, building, costumes, and acting it out. We can’t wait to see how our ideas continue to build over the next number of weeks!

A three year old and a kindergarten act out one of the scenes from the story we have been hearing. One of them plays Moshe, one is Tzipporah and they are holding their new son Gershom.
