First Day School: The Flood
I forgot to post about our lesson last Sunday. The Lone Star Girl wasn't feeling well, so no Young Friend class. The Lone Star Baby had a Noah lesson, in the style of Godly Play, with thanks from me that the materials do not emphasize the gruesome parts of that story, but the hopeful ones. She chose some Adam and Eve materials for her work, as well as making a bookmark on the lesson. We also read three related midrashim from Does God Have A Big Toe? and the book's title story about Babel. Best of all we read A Prayer For The Earth: The Story of Naamah, Noah's Wife. I really love Sandy Eisenberg Sasso's books.
