Our First Diorama
In anticipation of the Grandparents Party/Torah Party this Friday, the children were asked to choose one of their favorite stories and create a diorama, to be displayed and admired at a table at the event.
In what will be (I can only assume) the first of many in her academic career, I present Raphaela's rendition of Jacob's Dream. While I acted as the consultant on the project, I can honestly state that Raphaela did the majority of creative expression and heavy lifting; no helicopter parenting for me, something which is frankly easier to achieve here in Israel, where the young are given more responsibility and independence than in the United States.
This diorama is sponsored by a great box we got from Purim Mishloach Manot, plastaline molding clay, and Playmobil toys.
