Fourth Grade celebrated Chanukah on Sunday in a joyous way. The students made candles from beeswax using multiple colors to make the candle festive and unique. We read a Chanukah book examining the facts shared and the Jewish values emphasized by the story. The students also participated in a Chanukah assembly, singing songs and practicing the blessings for the candle lighting.
In addition to the Chanukah work, the students continued practicing the chanting of the v'ahavta. We not only practice the melody but also work to understand the meaning and significance of the prayer.
Hope you have a great week. Mrs. Y and Mr. Y
