Morah Mary-Margaret

It was more Chanukah celebration today in Vav.  We all enjoyed this creative celebration of the holiday by Six13--I am sure it will ring some familiar bells for you too:   Bohemian Chanukah

After we found all the history and tradition packed into this version we created a Chanukah ABCs--working collaboratively on the Zoom whiteboard students contributed one Chanukah related word for every letter of the alphabet.  Once we had pointed out the relevance of each of these students were challenged to create haiku using the words and phrases. 

See above for our alphabet and our haiku poems. Discuss with your student the significance of each word or phrase.

The Vav students have done a tremendous job this first half of the year, overcoming all the obstacles and hanging in there for some great online learning.  I so appreciate their resilience and persistence--being here every week.

May the remainder of your Chanukah be filled with great light and may the new secular year of 2021 bring us joy, healing, relief, and togetherness.
