The wonderful teachers at HAFTR’s Early Childhood buildings excel at making every learning opportunity a complete multisensory experience. Last week’s lessons about Parshat Noach are a perfect example of crafting more than one way for kids to connect with what they are learning.

Classes used a flannel board with felt pieces to make the story of Noach and the teyva come alive. The children practiced their numbers by counting two of every animal that went on the teyva as they pretended they were these animals and made the appropriate sounds. 

The students had lots of fun during art, and the activity was also great for fine motor skills. They got to work pinching, grasping, and patterning as they created rainbows. Then they

dip-dotted, glued, colored, and scrunched tissue paper to create their own teyvas. Of course, music is essential to every lesson, and they concluded by singing about the rainbow while naming each color. 

Using cornstarch, sugar, water, and food coloring, the yeladim made a “rainbow stew.” Each child received a Ziploc bag with two different colors of the “stew.” They squished it together, blending the colors. It was a wonderful visual and tactile experience. Even though they couldn’t eat their “stew,” as a special treat, they baked animal cookies to snack on instead!

Finally, each class made a rainbow fruit salad. What a delicious way to celebrate all of the colorful fruits in Hashem’s rainbow.  They all had so much fun creating their own projects as the story was retold and songs were sung. These children are already well on their way to being prepared for early admission to top universities!
