Mahalo to Aunty Isha and Alisha for sharing a story about Hanukkah! Our class has been busy this week writing for information. Our writing rubric for this benchmark lists meeting (PR) and exceeding (CD) samples as follows:
I am on topic. My information shows what I learned. My ideas are clear and stick to the topic. I have an introduction and I tell why it was interesting or important to me.
Here’s what the class wrote as a group after learning from Aunty Isha and Alisha:
Having two ways to celebrate holidays is so much fun! Alisha and Aunty Isha taught us about Hanukkah and Christmas. Jewish people celebrate Hanukkah. They play games with a dreidel. Kai told us it is like a top. They have nine candles they light to celebrate the miracle of the oil and light. Now we know more about holiday celebrations.
