We are puzzling out a new Hebrew word in Shalom Chaverim this week– “hallel.”

We know that playing music can help us feel ready to hallel.

We explored music in many different ways– we danced, with instruments an scarves. We are exploring different ways we can make noise using our fingers, hands and bodies. We even made our own instruments– shakers out of paper plates.

We are exploring our emotions, and the way we feel in our environment. We are examining photos of children I nature, children who are praising and celebrating. We are looking at out happy faces (and out family members!) in a mirror. We are learning and figuring things out together.

We wrapped up our time together by listening to more joyful music, and using our fingers to paint to the sounds we heard.
