Afternoon

 

On Monday, 1.6.15, at 02:00, we left Rosh Ha'Ayin towards Jurish with Nadim.

 

We arrived at the club at 03:00. The person in charge has already opened the club. In the next ten minutes eight girls arrived and later another seven, amongst them a few new faces. The joy was enormous. Some of the girls have not met for a while, due to the two weeks' break in their studies for the end of year examinations; They hugged and kissed warmly and updated each other happily. It was not easy to convince them to do this in English instead of in Arabic…

 

As the composition of the group changes to a certain extent from meeting to meeting, there were this time big disparities in the knowledge levels between the girls who form the permanent nucleus and those who do not participate consistently. In spite of this we managed to conduct a joint opening conversation, based on pictures from my last trip abroad, accompanied by stories. The girls were asked to tell about their personal experiences. They did no travel abroad, but visited towns in the area, in the houses of brothers and sisters and other family members. They managed to describe their experiences very well.  Pictures of the ocean, tall buildings and means of transportation such as boats, trains and trams caused cries of admiration. Although they haven't experienced travel by those means, they knew every word.

 

At the second part of the meeting the girls composed a puzzle based on a well-known children’s story about a fish who got lost, and its friends, the different marine creatures, search for it. All of them participated in this game without difficulties, all the while assembling the puzzle and describing the pictures. After the completion of the lesson we gave S. the presents we had brought for her birthday. Hadas, whose birthday falls on the same week, celebrated it in class last week.

 

According to the plan there should have been a repetition of the songs which Hadas has taught at the former lesson, but the time ran out without our noticing it, and it was time to begin the Yoga lesson. As is her habit, Sara has demonstrated the positions thoroughly and systematically, and the girls, who love physical activity, executed the exercises on a high level.

 

We parted with a pleasant feeling of friendship and mutual activity.
