What is something you might need help carrying?

In שׁוֹרָשִׁים (Shorashim– ‘roots’ for nursery) and שְׁתִּילִים (Shteelim– ‘saplings’ for kindergarten), we have started our new theme, נוֹשֵׂא בְעֹל עִם חֲבֵרוֹ (Nosei v’ol im chaveiro– Help a friend carry their burden, or, their heavy thing).

The starting point of this theme for this age group includes thinking about objects that a person might need help carrying.

We talked with a partner about some ideas and then shared with the group.

“A suitcase.”

“A bench.”

“A box of party decorations.”

“A dumpster.”

“Things to build a building with.”

To name a few.

Children also identified some reasons a person might need help carrying.

“Its too Heavy.”

“Its too big.”

“Too many things [at the same time].”

Then we play-acted,

drew,

“She needs help carrying her heavy backpack.”

and built, stories about getting help carrying.

“They are building a building. He is helping move the heavy things.”

Next time, we will be thinking about נוֹשֵׂא בְעֹל עִם חֲבֵרוֹ (Nosei v’ol im chaveiro– Help a friend carry their burden, or, their heavy thing) in the sense of “something you helped a friend do this year that was hard for your friend”. I can’t wait to hear about the ideas we come up with!
