We spent our time together in Shalom Chaverim this week beginning to explore some of the objects you might find in a synogogue.
There were pictures right at eye level for crawlers to find and examine…
And bigger pictures for older children to examine and embellish with dry erase markers. As we draw and scribble and color, we are learning the words– “Torah” and “yad” and “Aron hakadosh.” We are also building strength and fine motor control in our fingers and hands.
We are also building a foundational knowledge of alef bet, and are developing and understanding that these letters appear in the Torah. Lots of fun was had this week creating letters with play dough.
