This week Shteelim has been moving on with the basic story of Purim. Our Purim play has moved on to creating Purim puppets and using them with our Purim theater. The children decided on their own puppet characters and their own words while the Morah (teacher) prompted the Purim narrative. The children were able to fill in the story with some of their own dialogue. These puppets can be seen as a great learning toy for developing speaking and listening skills.
