Getting Ready for Chanukah, Part II

Even though by the time you read this we will be well into our celebration of Chanukah (or at least past the first night!), Sunday was yet another day of preparation for one of our favorite holidays. The students received gelt and dreidls, sang Chanukah songs, made decorations and cards for loved ones, and more! Here are some of the hightlights:

Our Pre-K class used the felt board to sing songs about the Menorah and visited the art room to make special Chanukah placemats:

The 3rd grade used the puppets they made last week to create puppet shows that recapped the important lessons they have learned in Mrs. Schake’s Prophets class:

Our 5th Graders made Chanukah cards in their classrooms. The designs they made included dreidl cutouts and other creative things:

The 5th Graders also unknowingly created a Chanukah video… thanks to Mrs. Levy and an older student for putting their poses and the music together! Check it out the Temple Emanuel Facebook Page or at tonight’s Chanukah Dinner and Party!

Hope everyone is having a Happy Chanukah! See you next week for pictures from this evening’s celebration.
