The children in Nitzanim (“Buds,” for first and second grade children) got their first taste of our new text this week! They listened to a section about Eliyahu HaNavi (Elijah the prophet) and created comic strips to retell what they heard.
Each child received a template containing six boxes. They had to figure out which parts of the story go into which boxes so they will have enough room for the entire scene without leaving empty boxes. This required a lot of planning!
The children started with pencils, then went over their lines with markers, including filling in lots of colorful details.
The end results were quite stunning! Stop by Beit Nitzanim and check them out. Even better, let your Nitzanimer tell you all about the comic strip they created!
