Students at The Little School of Waldwick have been enjoying learning about Holidays Around the World during our December thematic unit. Over the past week, Little Schoolers have been exploring the meaning of Hanukkah as well as the traditions of food and fun. Students played Dreidel and won some gelt (Hebrew for money)! Today, they even enjoyed traditional latkes for lunch and talked about the symbolism of frying the potato pancakes in oil, remembering the miracle of the oil that lasted for 8 nights.
Little School of Waldwick students are also learning about other traditions and holidays celebrated around the world. Christmas, Eid, Diwali, and Kwanzaa are among the holidays that we have been sharing together.
