The children in Shalom Chaverim are exploring the sights, sounds, and even tastes of Pesach. Many of the objects we are examining are new and exciting for us– so lots of rich conversations are happening as children make meaning of what they see and feel.
“Whats on the Seder plate?” is a question we posed together over and over– and we answered through play, through sensory exploration, through stories, through song.
We are exploring the symbols of Peach as we fit them into the seder plate, or bury and uncover them in cornmeal.
As we explore the objects on the Seder plate, together with our friends and caregivers, we are developing the language to describe what we see and touch together.
There were lots of real objects to touch and explore. We sniffed (and even tasted!) karpas together as we created our own paintings using leaves and stems.
