When we added a second story to our knowledge of Rivka (and activated previous knowledge from years past) it became clear we were going to need to expand our character wall! Not only did we add …

Shorashim Looks for their Shimot… & More


The Shorashimers have been really taking ownership of their shimot (Hebrew names) over the past few weeks. So we set out to do a hunt around the building for the letters of their shimot. They used their “tool” (a paper plate with the letters around the edge and fold down after it’s found) to see …
