This week in Shalom Chaverim was all about exploring what we can do with our bodies during the laila (night.) We explored the Shema together through story and song, and even put some babies to sleep with it.
We made our own renditions of the laila, using chalk on black paper.
Many children chose to add cochavim (stars) to their laila paintings– an opportunity to count them together, and a chance to build important fine motor skills.
As we looked at all things laila, we also explored the lamed– children built some with play dough, searched for magnetic versions, and decorated their own lamed.
