LITTLE WONDERS LEARNING CENTER December 2010
Please make time to view the amazing art exhibit in the entry way of the building! The exhibit will be on display from December 6th through the 15th.
This is the first year that Little Wonders has a child who celebrates Hanukkah (as well as Christmas)! We are so excited, and we are learning so much from him! We have been reading books about Hanukkah, and learning about the traditions.
We also read that latkes are a traditional food in the Hanukkah celebration, so we got a recipe and made them ourselves!
Some of our older children sounded out and read our ingredients for us…….
We could do it all by ourselves! ;0)
But wait!!!! A major math problem occurred! Mateo was documenting the stages of our cooking. He drew the latkes and drew little circles inside to represent the eggs. Wow, he drew a lot of eggs! Trevor said, "that is a lot of eggs, we only need 3 eggs"!
We heard different combinations of numbers, but Carter said, "a two and a five!"
So, it was time for us to practice writing 2's and 5's!
Ahhhh, ok, now that the math work was done, we could get back to cooking!
We were so lucky to have Sam's parents join us on this day to tell us about the Hanukkah tradition and help us cook the latkes……….
They made sure everything came out ok!
And boy did it ever come out okay! They were a hit! The children LOVED them! We ate them with applesauce and sour cream…….
While we ate, Sam's dad read us a book about Hanukkah.
When he was done reading, we went by the door to watch him light the menorah. (we made sure to do it by the door so that the smoke alarm wouldn't go off
We were all so interested!We watched as he used the one in the middle (green) to light the rest of the candles. It was the third night of Hanukkah, so we lit three candles
Here is one picture of Mark's menorah after our day of learning about Hanukkah! The children got so much from their experiences today.
