The ‘Letter of the week’ last week was ‘M’. The students stuck macaroni on the shape of an uppercase M. It was interesting to see how they approached this activity according to their particular stage of development. Some students applied the glue to the paper and stuck down each noodle individually. The younger students really wanted to play with the macaroni; which was fine! They wanted to stick the macaroni down in great handfuls!
We also made a collage of a Menorah, which is used during Hanukkah in the Jewish faith. The story of Hanukkah was read to the class; they liked the idea of lighting one candle each night. There own menorahs were colorful. They counted their candles as they proceeded through the activity.
