Happy Purim!

Purim is such a happy time! Here is some of the fun we have relating to the festival.

 We made a palace for Achashverosh.

And we acted out the story together, to make the megilla each student took home.
 Then during free play, the students reenacted the Purim story, over and over.
 I encouraged them to paint the first palace. Then they started building their own.
 I love the independently-driven activities almost as much as I love the complexity of their structures.

And of course we made hamantaschen!

 I hope Purim in your home and synagogue is as fun as Purim preparations were in our class.

Purim Sameach!
