We also learned about Kwanzaa today! We read:
which was great for reviewing the letters and superb in the explaining the details about the holiday. We learned that it's a holiday that celebrates African-American hertiage and culture. We also made a class Kinara which we "lit" together even though Kwanzaa isn't for another week-we won't be in school when it starts!
For art center today, we made cuffs. In the book, we learned that during Kwanzaa, jewelry is worn to celebrate African heritage. Using recycled toilet paper rolls, scrapbook paper, pom poms, beads and other beautiful junk-students adorned their own cuffs.

Tomorrow is the first day of Hanukkah! We'll be cooking latkes or potato pancakes in class tomorrow!
