My Hanukkah will be bright this year, having shared the holiday fun with your beautiful children.
Today we studied vocabulary words in Hebrew that are related to Hanukkah. We read a wonderful book entitled "All About Hanukkah" by Judith Groner and Madeline Wikler. The book illuminated the amazing story of the Macabees, a small army determined to keep their faith alive against all odds. Some of the children took on roles and helped to act out the story.
We made 3-D Hanukkah menorahs (Hannukiot) and puppets of Judah Macabee. We finished the class with dreidel playing in small groups.
I'd like to wish each of you delightful holidays. We'll reunite on January 8th, 2017!
