Getting festive for the holiday

Morah Tzivie:Friends please tell me a few ways we celebrate the upcoming holiday. 
First! The name of the holiday is?
Judah: PURIM!
Evan: We eat treats, hamantaschen.
Olivia: They are triangles.
Morah Tzivie: What is hidden inside?
Augie: We have Jam.
Olivia B.: We had chocolate in ours.
Morah Tzivie: What is the name of the scroll the story is recorded on?
Judah: Megillah!
Morah Tzivie: Who wrote it?
Nora/Evelyn: Rabbi Mordechai!
Rabbi Greenberg came to read us just a little bit.

After he read bit, Rabbi asked if we were ready for when we hear Haman's name, we said we were.

Morah Tzivie: During Purim we wear...
Nora: We dress up!
Judah: Like Rabbi Mordecai or Queen Esther or King Achashverosh but probably not Haman.
Morah Tzivie: Or any one really. We dress up and wear masks and are hidden to others to remember that Queen Esther didn't know Hashem's hidden plan.
Evan: Who am I? Haman! 
NO! I'm not Haman who would want to be him?
Abe: I'll wear a Haman mask.
Evan: I'll shake the gragger!
Abe: I'd rather just be Queen Esther since she saved the day.
Clara: Oh No It's Haman!
Ari: Just kidding! It's me Ari!
Morah Tzivie: Another mitzvah we do on Purim is giving gifts of food.
Olivia: Happy Purim!
Evelyn: Happy Purim! Let's eat them 
and then make them again and give them again.
Olivia: Yeah let's do that. We can make new gifts and give them again.
Morah Tzivie: For Purim we give extra...
Abram: Tzedakah!
Morah Tzivie: It is such a happy holiday we want everyone to enjoy and have a good time.
And we have a feast, a big party!
Olivia: Ok we have all our food for our party.
Evelyn: We are ready.
Abram: It's nice to have big party, everyone likes to have fun.
