Dear Grade 2 Parents,
This week we discussed the upcoming holiday, the Festival of Lights, formally known as Chanukah. We learned the history and story pertaining to the holiday and the significance of the menorah, and why we light it. We watched a clip from the Rugrats Chanukah film and discussed it relevance in relation to the traditions in which we engage in today. Each student had a chance to share with the class celebratory customs that their families do during the holiday. Lastly, we reviewed all the Hebrew letters and vowels that we have learned thus far, and did some fun activities which reinforced and ensured their understanding.
Looking forward to seeing everyone at the Chanukah celebration and dressed up in their pajamas next week!
