Bring a small holiday object to put in our mystery bag.

We’ll try to identify it by touch only.

(This means a small ball ornament, a piece of evergreen tree, a little pinecone,  a shiny icicle, a tiny reindeer, etc.)

Topic: Hanukkah

Learn about a custom of another culture.


The value we’ll be studying is joy, which is a very glad feeling. It 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 be making cheese latkes.

Outside, we’ll play human knots.

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

For creative dramatics, we’ll act out the story of Hanukkah.

Our art activities will be dreidles, menorahs, holiday cards, and star of David.

For motor development we’ll work on stamina with jumping jacks and relay races. For vestibular function, we’ll be twirling tops, horses and ponies, and rocking boats.
