What Did We Learn This Week?

Language Arts

It was a week full of Hanukkah centers, readings, and projects this week! I hope you all loved the Hanukkah drip mats we made! Today was super fun as we did Hanukkah rotations where we built a Hanukkah puzzle, made sufganiyot, watched a Hanukkah story on Tumblebooks, and did a fun art project!

Dear 2nd grade parents,

As the holiday of Chanukah חֲנֻכָּה arrived, at the beginning of every lesson we lit the Chanukiahחֲנֻכִּיָּה together, said the blessings, sang holiday songs and listened to stories. We also completed the work in our Holiday booklet חַג שָׂמֵחַ .

Our ARIOT KOTEV letter was כ (KAF).

Wishing you a bright Chanukah,

Shabbat shalom, שַׁבָּת שָׁלוֹם
