This week we learned all about a sofer who writes mezuzahs and Torah scrolls. We painted with feathers just like a sofer writes the mezuzah with a feather quill and ink. We saw and felt a real parchment mezuzah and found the mezuzah on the door. We also saw a real quill. We rolled up paper like a mezuzah and made our very own rolled mezuzah cookies. We also added feathers to some of our sensory play.
In our Alef Bais unit we met the letter mem and decorated our own mem with glitter. We found letters in our rice table and used alef bais cookie cutters in our playdough.
