There’s no better way to help you understand and remember a story than to tell it yourself. We did just that in Shorashim this week by bringing the first story of Rivkah to life through dramatic play!
Instead of one scripted performance, children were given the opportunity to come in and out of the story as they pleased as it was told and retold throughout the week. They worked with their friends…
…and sometimes even a favorite stuffed animal (he’s wrapped in the sweater)!
We made use of many different materials in the classroom to help us really feel like we were a part of the story. We made costumes out of scarves and sweaters.
And you can’t forget the jewelry we made last week!
Our desert backdrop set the scene, and our גמלים (gamalim – camels) from Yetzirah were always thirsty for pretend מים (mayim – water) from our bucket well.
We had a ton of fun acting out the story of Rivkah in Shorashim this week! We look forward to more exciting explorations next week!
