Happy Holidays!

Today Ms. Maura came to visit to teach us how to play the Dreidel game. 

dreidel sides letters

a) Nun means “nisht” or “nothing.” The player does nothing.

b) Gimel  means “gantz” or “everything.” The player gets everything in the pot.

c) Hey means “halb” or “half.” The player gets half of the pot. (If there is an odd number of pieces in the pot, the player takes half of the total plus one).

d) Shin (outside of Israel) means “shtel” or “put in.” Peh (in Israel) also means “put in.” The player adds a game piece to the pot.

5. If you find that you have no game pieces left, you are either “out” or may ask a fellow player for a “loan.”

6. When one person has won everything, that round of the game is over!

Next, we opened our gifts. Ms. Raymond loved all of the thoughtful and generous gifts! Thank you! 

The kids loved their Gingerbread bears and books!

We had a great day together. Happy Holidays and I hope everyone has a wonderful Winter break!
