This week in Shorashim, we continued our exploration of chayot (animals). The children waited outside the room while chayot were placed throughout the room. Then the chase was on! One at a time they ran to an animal and lifted it up. After practicing saying the name of the chaya (animal) in Hebrew with the help of their morah (teacher), the children ran to get the chaya onto the ark before the geshem (rain) came.
Running to get the chayot onboard!
By working together, we found so many chayot we had to add an extra room to the back of the ark!
