On Purim, we read the story of __________________ Queen Esther, one of the
bravest __________________ in all Jewish history. This is her story:

wanted to choose a new queen, so he __________________ed a beauty pageant to
help him decide. The winner was the Jewish orphan named Esther, and she was
__________________, refused to bow to Haman, the King’s evil ________________ .
Haman was so __________________ , he decided to destroy all the Jews, and
__________________ Esther’s uncle on a gallows. So he told the King that all
the Jews were different, disobedient, and __________________ ... and the King
agreed Haman could have them __________________ed! Esther’s uncle learned of
the villain’s __________________ , and told Esther she must convince the King

on her head. When they read the book of Esther, I make a lot of __________________
at Haman’s name by shaking a __________________. Or I just yell
__________________ as loud as I can, over and over! I can’t believe Haman would try
to __________________ all the Jews. Thank goodness Esther and her uncle
__________________ were there to stop him! After the reading, the party
__________________! I stuff myself with yummy cookies called _________________
They have __________________ corners and are filled with __________________ .
Some say they look like Haman’s hat, or maybe his __________________
But they remind me of __________________. The kids in my __________________
also put on a Purimshpiel play. They act out the story of __________________ and

off my __________________! Have a happy, __________________ Purim!
