Games to Play With Two Year Olds-Jackie Silberg

Follow the Tape
Make paths across the floor with masking tape. You can also do this outdoors. Make the path curve and turn and go a lot of different directions. Hold your child’s hand and walk along the path with him. As you walk, sing the song, “Oh, Do You Know the Muffin Man? When your two year old understands that he can walk on the masking tape and follow it, suggest that you travel the path in a different way. Try hopping, running, sliding, marching, walking backwards and tiptoeing. “The Muffin Man” is a big favorite of two year olds. You can also sing other favorite songs. What your two year old will learn: Balance

Irena Sendler –Courage “Helping Others Despite Danger” by Krisanna Graham 1st Place “Will my child live?” one concerned parent asked. “I cannot guarantee it, but what I do know is that your child will not live if they don’t come with me,” Irena said honestly. Irena Sendler learned to help and care for others at a very young age. She was influenced by her father, a doctor, who cared for many poor Jewish families. Irena took part in the leftist Union of Democratic Youth and protested against many things like a “desk ghetto.” As an adult, Irena worked as senior administrator in the Warsaw Social Welfare Department, which ran canteens across the city when Germany invaded Poland in 1939. Irena began making the canteens provide not only food, financial aid, and other services for orphans, the elderly, and the poor, but also clothing, medicine and money for Jewish families. To avoid inspections, Irena had the Jewish people register under fake names and report as patients suffering contagious diseases. Irena was sickened by the conditions of the Warsaw Ghetto when it was built. This led her to join the Council for Aid to Jews, Zegota. While she was a part of Zegota, she directed the efforts to rescue Jewish children. Sendler used her position in the Welfare Dept. to get a pass from the Warsaw Epidemic Control Dept., which allowed her to gain access to the Warsaw Ghetto. She visited the Ghetto daily, bringing Jewish families necessities of life. Irena wore a star armband as a sign of her solidarity with Jewish people. To rescue the children, the hardest part for Irena was to get the parents to agree to let her smuggle their children out of the Ghetto. Irena still is haunted by the sounds of the parents and children crying as they were separated to this day. In order to successfully smuggle the children, Irena needed help fromthe outside. With the help from the outside, Irena was able to issue hundreds of false documents with forged signatures. She successfully smuggled approximately 2,500 Jewish children to safety and gave them new names. On ly Irena knew the children’s real identities and buried the information about each child in glass jars underneath an apple tree in a neighbor’s backyard. She hoped to dig up the jars, locate the children, and inform them of their past later on. Irena was arrested on October 20, 1943 for smuggling out Jewish children and was sentenced to death. Although the Germans tortured her for the information about the children, Irena stayed strong and silent. On her way to execution, Zegota bribed a soldier to let Irena escape. The next day, Irena’s name appeared on the list of executed Poles. After she escaped, Irena went under a new identity, and kept rescuing Jewish children until the end of the war. Then, Irena cared for the children so much that she dug up the jars from underneath the apple tree and tried to locate the children. After she located the children, she told them who their parents were. Although she tried to get the children reunited with their parents and relatives, many had died in Nazi concentration camps. Irena is one of the most inspirational people to me. I know of many presidents, leaders, and motivators, but none have saved 2,500 children’s lives like Irena. No other person has put forth so much effort to save children as much as Irena Sendler has. Even though she faced death to save the Jewish children, she did not give up. The fact that she

risked her life to save so many children really inspires me. Though the Germans broke her bones, they could not break Irena’ spirit. To not give up any of that information about the Jewish children’s whereabouts while being tortured was a courageous thing to do. She could have just told the Germans where to find the information and not be tortured, but no, Irena stayed strong and did not tell them anything. To me, that is the most inspirational think I have ever heard. Irena Sendler is definitely a hero, even though she does not call herself a hero or take any credit for her work. Wilma Rudolph – Determination By Jenna Sauber 2nd Place Ready…set…bang! Wilma jets from the starting block on to the sweltering hot track in a flurry of legs and speed. Her heart rises in her throat, and sweat drips into her dark brown eyes as she pounds the track with fast determination to cross the finish line—a finish line she thought she would never cross. Wilma was born in Clarksville, Tennessee in 1940. She was born prematurely, only weighing 4.5 pounds at birth. The local hospitals were segregated, so Wilma, an African American, was unable to get needed medical attention. By the time Wilma was 4, she had battled the measles, chicken pox, mumps, double pneumonia and other illnesses. In 1944, Mrs. Rudolph took Wilma to the only black doctor in town after Wilma’s left foot and leg showed signs of becoming crippled and deformed. The doctor immediately diagnosed Wilma with polio, a crippling disease with no cure. However, Mrs. Rudolph and Wilma didn’t give up hope of Wilma ever walking again. They located a doctor 50 miles away form their home and began making 2 trips a week to visit him. There, he put heavy metal braces on Wilma’s legs, and helped her with exercises to make her legs strong again. After over a year of therapy, exercises and crutches, Wilma and her mother weren’t able to go to the doctor for help any longer. Mrs. Rudolph taught herself the exercises and did them with Wilma everyday. Many times during those years of hard work just to regain her own strength, Wilma says she almost wanted to give up, but she didn’t. Finally, after 7 years of working to regain her strength, Wilma was able to walk by herself without crutches or braces. It was then that Wilma decided to become an athlete. Wilma went on to play basketball in high school. She was a member of the team, but Wilma’s coach did not put her in to play in a single game for 3 years. However, Wilma, determined to play, signed up year after year. She did get to play in 2 games her senior year. She changed her sports outlook to track and field and found great success. She is now an Olympic gold medal track sprinter. Wilma Rudolph greatly inspires me with her determination. When she was told that she was never going to walk again, she wouldn’t take no for an answer. She was greatly determined to regain her strength, and nothing was going to stop her. It took her 7 years to become strong enough to walk, a long time to work on something that you know you may never do. Not very many people would hold onto a hope that long, and it takes pure determination to do so. I hurt my ankle during the cross-country season and had to go through therapy for it to heal. Lots of times, I wanted to quit my therapy because I didn’t feel like I was getting anywhere, but when I learned about Wilma Rudolph, I was determined to run again. Her determination and love of running helped me to realize that running is very important to me, and that I should never give up on anything, from running to school work to everyday life. I continue to remember what Wilma did to overcome her struggle with polio, and her unwavering determination that led her to it. She helps me to stay determined in whatever I do, setting an example to follow by and to dream by. Wilma jets from the starting block on to the sweltering hot track in a flurry of legs and speed. Her heart rises in her throat, and sweat drips into her dark brown eyes as she pounds the track with fast determination to cross the finish line to claim the golden medal.

John Paul II (Karol Wajtyla) – Humility by Patrick Eslick….. 3rd Place “Papa! The bells!” yelled Karol Wajtyla as church bells rang in Wawodice, Poland. He was hanging on his father’s shoulders as they strolled through the square. “Your mother and I were thinking about enrolling you as an altar boy. Would you like that?” asked his father. “Sure, Papa!” said an excited young Wajtyla. His mother and brother would not live to see the day. Karol Wajtyla led an unhappy childhood. All of his immediate family died before he turned 21. He was an excellent student and athlete, but all that ended when the Nazis invaded Poland in Wajtyla’s early 20’s. He was almost forced into a Nazi work camp, but he hid out in a Catholic monastery where he became a priest in 1946, something his father had always wanted for him. As a priest he spread anti-abortion views. He also discouraged the anti-Semitic views of many Polish Catholics of the age. Quickly Wajtyla ascended the Catholic ranks of authority—Bishop, Archbishop, Cardinal, then finally after the sudden death of Pope John Paul I (1978) he became Pope, taking the name John Paul II in honor of his predecessor. John Paul II did many phenomenal things as pope. He visited over 115 Countries; spreading, not superimposing Catholicism to third world countries and the wealthy countries alike. He also became the first pope to branch out into the Jewish faith. He was the first pope ever to visit a synagogue, a major achievement in relations with other faiths. Not everything went smooth within his papacy. He was nearly assassinated by a man whom he later forgave for his

crime, which was committed for no apparent reason. After about 22 years into the papacy, he began to develop sicknesses, such as Parkinson’s Disease. He held out, however, until 2005, which was 27 years after he was elected. After giving one last Sunday prayer from his hospital balcony, he died. John Paul II did not get big-headed once he became pope. This is an example that we must also follow. He did not let his position in life elevate him above others. Nor did he consider himself better than the little people. In our own high positions that may or may not come, we must also remain humble, considering ourselves not bigger or better, only different fromthose around us. We must find a way to look up, not down upon others, especially if we find ourselves sitting on the highest pedestal. We need to follow the path of John Paul II who, even in the face of tremendous power, even in the face of cruel treatment, and even in the face of sadness, always put others before himself, and remained meek.
