The Darchei Noam Montessori classrooms were filled with the Adar spirit this month as we got ready for Purim. The primary classes made their own hamantaschen and got to choose from different fillings. In the boys division, they counted how many times the word “מלך ”appears in מגילת אסתר . They also created a colorful paper chain that reached one side of the building to the other side circling through each classroom connecting in the hallway.
The Upper Elementary Girls worked on pranking staff members (harmlessly). They bubble wrapped the front desk and individually wrapped up each pen and pencil. They also filled Ms. Jen, the school counselor’s room with colorful streamers. The Juniors prepared chocolatedrizzled popcorn for the Lower Elementary Girls to hand out to the entire school. They put the popcorn into mini bags and put a colorful label on the front wishing everyone a wonderful Adar Sheini.
We had dress up day on the Tuesday before Purim and got to dance outside during recess. Everyone enjoyed themselves and we all had a great Adar 5782.
