A “Puzzling” Challenge

This past week, the Shteelimers were given new puzzles to explore Hebrew letters. When the children saw that both puzzles could be figured out by arranging the Aleph Beit in order, they got to work! The strategies they used were all cooperative and mostly carried out without any guiding hints from the morot (educators). This was some very child-directed exploration and teamwork! The children gathered examples of the Aleph Beit that were available around the room and worked together, singing through the Aleph Beit song, and finding matches all on there own.

This moment came after a shteelimer exlaimed, "Hey you guys, I have an idea! Let's find something that has the whole Aleph Beit on it." It worked!
