1. opening game: ”the reason game”
2. did you understand…?
3. story – “ducks fat”
1.Opening game – “the reason game”
The chanichim are sitting in a circle. The first chanich says a sentence and the second one has to say a reason for the first sentence.
“Because the dog ate my notebook”
Because he was hungry and my sister didn’t feed him
Because she hates the dog since he bit
2. Did you understand?
Give ¾ of the chanichim little papers with quotes from movies, books, commercials that delivers a message (positive/negative).give the other ¼ clouds that expresses thoughts we have about life.
Each chanich has to find the chanich that has the cloud that matches his quote.
(Examples in the end of the peula)
Ask your chanichim:
*We are surrounded with communication – television , newspapers, books, movies ,signs on the street. Each quote is reflecting a certain statement: do we agree with all the statements?
*do all the “thought clouds” fit the style of life we believe in?
3.”Chicken Fat” – story:
Remembering what is our goal is so important when we try to reach somewhere/someone. We must think what are the values and objects that fit our style of life (tora ve'avoda) and not to adopt every value we meet in other people/places/cultures.
