Happy Hanukkah

Last week to commence the first day of Hanukkah, Lia brought in a few special things to share with the class.  She showed us the menorah, a nine branched candelabra, that is lit on each of the eight days of Hanukkah.  She also brought a colourful assortment of dreidels, which are spinning tops, for playing games.  Each top has four sides and is usually made of wood or plastic.  Lia told us that each side of the dreidel has a Hebrew letter marked on it.  During Centres (free play) Lia let her friends spin the dreidels.  This was a popular activity this week.  Thank you for sharing Lia!
