Snapshots of a Rosh Hashanah Story

Did you know that the children in Shorashim (‘Roots’ for nursery) and Shteelim (‘Saplings’ for Kindergarten) are storytellers and editors?

This week at כיבוד (kibud–snack), we looked at photos of the ways we have played Rosh Hashanah and wrote a story to go with the photos. We also went through a process to edit the story, so the children could share exactly the words they wanted. We discovered that it is fun to tell a story together and also hard if not everyone agrees about the edits.

Here are a few parts that will be included:

Everybody was chopping apples for Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year).
I was pouring the honey, “If you run out of honey you can pour some more.”
We made Rosh Hashanah cards together for our families. 
We each blew a shofar, that’s how we started the new year.
We invited a lot of people to a Rosh Hashanah party.
At dinner we took the apples and dipped them in honey and we sang, apples dipped in honey for Rosh Hashanah.
