This week the children in שׁוֹרָשִׁים (Shorashim– ‘roots’ for nursery) and שְׁתִּילִים (Shteelim– ‘saplings’ for kindergarten) have started to tellstories about תְּשׁוּבָה (Teshuvah– returning to the path you want to be on after making a mistake) from their own lives!
We did a little bit of guided meditation to picture a place that we spend time and people that we really know and might spend time with us in that place. Children chose places like the playground, their backyard or their playroom at home. Some children chose to tell stories based on something that really happened to them, or based on something that they saw happen. Some stories had תְּשׁוּבָה (Teshuvah) integrated, and for some stories we thought about the תְּשׁוּבָה (Teshuvah) that we would have wanted to happen.
It’s not easy to share stories that really happened to us, Kol Ha’kavod שׁוֹרָשִׁים (Shorashim– ‘roots’ for nursery) and שְׁתִּילִים (Shteelim– ‘saplings’ for kindergarten)!
