Special to The Jewish News

ince moving from
Michigan to Flori-
da in 1972, Irene
Molner Schatz's
life has taken a
dramatic turn.
Schatz, who grew up in
Oak Park, has brought
theater, music and Broad-
way to North Miami Beach,
where she heads the parent-
child program and serves as
a vice president of Temple
Sinai of North Dade.

Working with 1-2 1/2-year-
old-children, Schatz plays
guitar, sings and presents

finger plays and dramatic
plays.
"My favorite activity is
when I bring a magic box to
class," she said. "It's invisi-
ble. I'll take things out of the
box that they can't see,
allowing them to use their
imagination at a very early
age. And they're all into it
now. We'll pretend there's a
cat in the box, and they go
around petting the cat."
In addition to directing the
group of 100 children, Schatz
leads art activities, teaching
the boys and girls to paint
with chocolate pudding and
applesauce and make play
dough out of peanut butter
and powdered milk.
"We use all kinds of things

they can get their hands in
to. Yet, if they put it into
their mouths, it's okay."

bachelor's degree in special
