Paper Driedel we printed and assembled from enchanted learning.
We made a paper menorah and used the center candle to light a new candle each day we studied Judaism.
We made a Cheesy Potato Kugel
We Celebrated Sukkot!
The kids decorating the baby gate that will be the roof of the Sukkot with paper fruit.
Robin made signs for our pets to hang up on a telephone pole if they were ever lost like Tush was in the story.I didn't get a picture of them because when I tried to look for them they disappeared and were nowhere to be found!
We spent quite a bit of time going through Jewish holidays. We really felt like we related to this book. We had a Manx cat ( they have no tails) for many years before she died. Out neighbor came from Poland many years ago and speaks very little English. And of course we just read about slavery so this tied in well. Tomorrow we are going through a house that used to be part of the underground railroad and see were they hid the slaves in the basement.
This was one of the more difficult FIAR stories we have done due to all the confusing words and Jewish holidays but we all learned quite a bit. We actually rowed this book for 2 weeks instead of 1 partly because we had so many field trips interrupting our day, and partly because I really wanted to go deeper about Jewish holidays.
