Morah Katie: What are we celebrating for 8 days?
Abigail: The oil was STILL there.
Moran Katie: Where was the oil?
Sroli: In the menorah in the Beit HaMikdash ( Holy Temple).
Morah Tzivie: Let's see if we have a miracle happen in our classroom. We will keep an eye on our candle and oil and see how long they stay lit.

Morah Katie: What happened in the Holy Temple?
Natan: The Greeks broke the stuff up.
Abigail: The bossy king said "Don't read the Torah".
Anton: "No more learning."
Sroli: "No more doing mitzvahs."
Isaac: "Don't celebrate the holidays."
Morah Katie: What did the Jewish people do?

We continue to play, learn and celebrate Chanukah.
Ari: This is the shamash.

We created Chanukah shapes with play-dough.
