It’s חֲנֻכָּה (Chanukah) and the children in שׁוֹרָשִׁים (Shorashim– ‘roots’ for nursery) and שְׁתִּילִים (Shteelim– ‘saplings’ for kindergarten), are fully immersed in חֲנֻכָּה (Chanukah) play! We have had so many opportunities to use our חֲנֻכָּה (Chanukah) vocabulary!
We are having חֲנֻכָּה (Chanukah) celebrations! We make latkes, set up the table for guests, “light” the חֲנֻכִּיָה (Chanukiyah) and sing חֲנֻכָּה Chanukah songs!
We got ready to play the Chanukah story! These children are building a Menorah for the temple in the story. We heard that a Menorah is a little different than a חֲנֻכִּיָה (Chanukiyah), which we used in our pretend play area.
We made decorations for our space and חֲנֻכָּה (Chanukah) cards!
