A PROGRAM FOR CHILDREN FROM PRESCHOOL THROUGH EARLY ELEMENTARY
Mussar for Children integrates Jewish values with classroom and family activities, directed discussions, and more. This program is easily incorporated into school programs pairing the middot with Jewish holidays and festivals.
This Mussar program for young children uses an inquiry-based approach in which cooperative, child-initiated learning promotes the children’s spiritual and ethical development. The program provides a starting point for creating awareness and encouraging reflection and ongoing discovery.
To help you prepare, you will receive introductory letters to share with your co-workers and families and information on how to create a mascot to join you in the classroom when each new middah is introduced.
Stories are based around the puppets: Mendel or Mindel who bring the middot from revered Jewish sources. Your children will be excited to see the puppets, knowing that whenever one of them visits, they will have the opportunity to explore a new middah and practice. They will soon learn that the puppets signal new books to read, a much-loved “Questions-In-A-Jar” activity, and more.
For example, you'll receive a scroll with the middah written in English, Hebrew, and transliteration to reinforce the idea that each middah was received long ago and has been passed down to us.
You will also receive learning materials that describe the middah and ways to highlight it in family life. Suggested activities can be included in your school newsletter or sent home to parents.
