This week the children in שׁוֹרָשִׁים (Shorashim– ‘roots’ for nursery) and שְׁתִּילִים (Shteelim– ‘saplings’ for kindergarten) took their storytelling to the stage! They are creating incredible stories where תְּשׁוּבָה (Teshuvah– returning to the path you want to be on after making a mistake) takes place.
Our תְּשׁוּבָה (Teshuvah) storytelling theater includes full audience participation. The audience offers ideas for location, characters and a problem. The actors choose the תְּשׁוּבָה (Teshuvah).
The story we decided on took place on the playground at school, two children wanted to play with the same stick.
In the video, the children decide to play the solutions game, where each person offers a solution to the problem until they find one that works for everyone.
After we saw the scene with one kind of תְּשׁוּבָה (Teshuvah), we had a different set of actors show us another kind of תְּשׁוּבָה (Teshuvah) that would work for the same situation. The second group of actors decided that one of them would pick a different stick to play with.
We were able to come up with two completely different ways of returning to the path you want to be on after making a mistake. Kol Hakavod, שׁוֹרָשִׁים (Shorashim– ‘roots’ for nursery) and שְׁתִּילִים (Shteelim– ‘saplings’ for kindergarten)!
