Last week we were so busy preparing for Purim!
First Morah taught us new words: King and Queen. We tried to repeat after Morah.
We made a special sound maker, which is called gragger. Morah gave us each a plastic bottle and we practiced our fine motor skills by putting little rocks and beads through the hole, one by one. When we were done adding stones, Morah closed the bottles and taped handles on so we could shake the bottles.
The day before Purim, we made hamentashen together (cookies in a triangle shape).
Morah made a circle with a cookie cutter, then we used spoons to carefully put jelly in the middle.
On Purim day, we joined everyone for our school party. We saw friends dressed in costumes like kings and queens. We brought our graggers to shake. There was a lot of dancing and singing. Some of us even joined in! It was so much fun!
