This week we are learning about celebrations. We’ve discovered that some of our celebrations are the same as others in our class and some are different. After we read a story about Hanukkah (which NONE of us celebrate), we tried potato pancakes. Almost all of the students gave them a thumbs up.
Later, we Skyped with Ms Lirenman’s class in Surrey who taught us a lot about Hanukkah, including the dreidel.
They lit a menorah for us to see. We wondered why the candle flame looked like this. Do you know?
