Yesterday we had the pleasure of having Spencer’s grandmother Sandy, Julia’s mom Dorothy and Molly’s mom Jessica in the class for a Chanukah celebration. We read about the holiday’s origin, lit and learned about the hanukiah, enjoyed donut holes and latkes and played many rounds of the dreidel game (not only a fun tradition but also great practice in counting, the concept of halving and of course top-spinning skills!)

Here are some pictures from our celebration:

On a side note, after over three months, I finally figured out how to be an official administrator on this blog, so from now on my posts should show up with my username, as opposed to me posting as Colleen.
