Students filled out a 4-column chart throughout the week as we learned about and celebrated a different holiday from around the world, each day.

MONDAY:

Hanukkah:  We read nonfiction books & fiction story books about the holiday, participated in activities, and played dreidel!

TUESDAY:

Kwanzaa: For this holiday, we focused on the 7 Principles and how we’d implement them into our daily lives.  We also learned about the history of the holiday and how it was created and compared/contrasted it to Hanukkah.  We also made Kinaras.
