Shteelim (‘saplings’ for kindergarten) had decided that Avraham, one of the characters from Genesis 18, is welcoming and friendly because of how Avraham treats the 3 men. It was time to see what it might be like for us to welcome guests:
“Shorashim (‘roots’ for Nursery) is coming to visit us! What can we do to make them feel welcome?”
In Shteelim (‘saplings’ for kindergarten) we planned a real visit with Shorashim.
“We open the door and say Shalom!”
“We should be kind and help them.”
“We could show them around and show them how to play our ivrit (Hebrew) games.”
“We can ask them to play with us and play what they want to play.”
“I want to make a them cards!”
Making cards to welcome Shorashim:
“They’re here, they’re here!”
We Shared a picnic:
Sang Aleph-Bet together:
Worked on a Puzzle:
Acted out Genesis 18:
We tried out Aleph-Bet magnets:
It was wonderful to see Shteelim (‘saplings’ for kindergarten) participating in the practice of welcoming guests by taking care of of Shorashim (‘roots’ for Nursery).
