This week in שׁוֹרָשִׁים (Shorashim– ‘roots’ for nursery) and שְׁתִּילִים (Shteelim– ‘saplings’ for kindergarten), we have been working on our theme project for Avraham V’Lot!
The children have their hands in every part of the process of designing our paper mâché text-based play space.
We began the process by asking children to look at different photos, explore textures and choose colors, that they thought would best show, the land could not support them to live together (Genesis chapter 13, verse 6).
The children decided what the landscape of our paper mâché should look and they started shaping.
Children helped each other put on their smocks.
The next day, we painted a base coat of paint on top.
After painting we could start to play! We set up a special spot where pairs of children could go build about the text together, then they would be interviewed about their work and the building is photographed.
It is so amazing to see what the children are capable of!
