double trouble

Pertaining to Parasha Toldot: Gen. 25:19-28:9, Malachi 1:1-2:7, Rom. 9:1-13

For Parasha Toldot, we talked a lot about twins and brothers. We used two "Bible friends" from http://www.makingfriends.com/ for Ya'akov and Esav, painting Esav red. My daughter adores babies (in fact, she just received about 5 or 6 new baby dolls for her second birthday!), so she enjoyed looking at baby pictures and searching for twins in magazines, etc. I cut out pictures of twins from the magazines and/or the internet and we glued them on construction paper for a twin collage.

This week we looked at and colored the letter E, looked for words that start with E (like Esav!), and listened to the sounds that E makes on a "Fridge Phonic" Leapfrog magnet toy that my daughter has. This was a special letter because her name also begins with E, and she is learning to recognize it when I spell it aloud for her. We looked for things that are the color purple (which she pronounces a little too similar to "poo poo".) All in all, this parashah was a little complicated for a two year old, but it's never too early to introduce a child to Torah!
