Helping a Friend with Something Hard is Another way to Nosei v’Ol Im Chaveiro

In שׁוֹרָשִׁים (Shorashim– ‘roots’ for nursery) and שְׁתִּילִים (Shteelim– ‘saplings’ for kindergarten), we are in our second week of our theme, נוֹשֵׂא בְעֹל עִם חֲבֵרוֹ (Nosei v’ol im chaveiro– Help a friend carry their burden, or, their heavy thing). This week children have been sharing stories about helping a friend with something hard, which is another way to, נוֹשֵׂא בְעֹל עִם חֲבֵרוֹ (Nosei v’ol im chaveiro– Help a friend carry their burden, or, their heavy thing).

We shared a story with a partner. Some children chose to share their stories with the whole group. After everyone had a chance to share, our yetzirah (art/creativity) educator picked a story for the children to paint and add to our wall, as a reminder of the kinds of stories that are about נוֹשֵׂא בְעֹל עִם חֲבֵרוֹ (Nosei v’ol im chaveiro– Help a friend carry their burden, or, their heavy thing).

The following are three stories about helping a friend with something hard:

My friend worked really hard on making a picture and then someone scribbled on it. My friend was sad. I helped my friend, I helped her make a new picture and she wasn’t sad anymore.
My friend wanted to climb up a ladder on the playground, but they didn’t know how. I helped them by telling them where to put their hand or their foot and they could do it.
Learning things is hard! My parents are teaching me how to read by reading books to me.

Children came up with lots of different examples of hard things and ways of helping. How would you help a friend with a big feeling, a challenge that they are hoping to complete, or something they are learning how to do?
