This week in Beit Shorashim/Shteelim (Nursery and Kindergarten) we focused our play on one piece of text about an experience that the Israelites had בַּמִּדְבָּר (Bamidbar), between their old home and their new home. The text comes from שמות (Shemot- Exodus) 16 in the תורה (Torah).
In these dramatic play photos, the children imagined that they were Israelites, including Moshe (the Italicized captions included are the words from the text that match the photos).
In the evening, quails* came up and covered the camp; and in the morning, there was a layer of dew around the camp.
The children imagined what happened right after Moshe explained what the bread was and where it came from:
Some children also built the new text in blocks, including details such as, quails, dew, fine-flake like things/bread and what the Israelite “camp” looked like.
