Our Kindergarten students are learning how lights play a role in many celebrations. We have read books and viewed short video clips showing how lights are used in celebrations such as parades, lighting of Christmas trees and lighting of candles. We have talked about how Christmas is celebrated around the world. We have also discussed Kwanzaa, Diwali and Hanukkah. Students shared their customs and talked about how they celebrate at home. It is wonderful to see how children are now coming up to the front and proudly talking about their celebrations. As you travel around over the holidays you might want to point out how light is used in one of the darkest months of the year.
