The value we’ll be studying is joy, which comes from working hard for a worthy goal, enjoying the goal that you achieved, and gratitude for being able to achieve your goal.

For cooking, we’ll make cheese latkes.

Outside, we’ll play knots.

The songs we’ll be singing are Jingle Bells, It’s a Small World, Up on the Housetop, Frosty the Snowman, and O Christmas Tree.

For creative dramatics, we’ll play with dreidles.

Our art activities are dreidles, menorahs, holiday cards, and Hanukkah banners.

For motor development, we’ll work on stamina with jumping jacks and relay races. For vestibular function, we’ll show and don’t tell, and be twirling tops, horses and ponies, and rocking boats.
