Holiday Traditions

The second graders have been learning about different holidays, traditions and cultures during this busy holiday season.  We have invited parents to come in to share their family's traditions with us.

On Monday, Mrs. G. came in and taught us all about Advent. We learned about the Advent candles. Three of the candles are purple and one pink. The first purple candle is Hope, the second is Faith, the third (pink) is for Joy. The fourth candle is purple again and it is for Peace. The children were excited to see different Advent wreaths and the Advent calendar the family uses to count down to Christmas.

Over the next week we will be learning about many more traditions!
