This week in preschool! We’ve started our Chanukah preparations and boy is it fun. We’ve been
decorating the classroom, doing a toy switch out, and starting to assemble our menorahs. The
classroom is full of Chanukah songs and cheer, it’s a lovely sight.

Our friends are so excited to take home a menorah. They’re non-working menorahs so safe for
our little ones. We’ve been painting our “candles” and soon we will sticker the bases. We’ve
been talking about the menorah and the dreidel, especially the aleph beis on the dreidel and
what they mean.

In circle time we’ve been doing “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” felt story. This story helps with
days of the week recognition, object recall (which helps our short term memory), and counting!
Our friends are starting to cite the story back to me which is a great sign the lessons are sinking
in. We’ve also been really into Raffi’s “Baby Beluga” so that is read and sung several times

Until next week,
Ms. Emily and Morah Sarah
