This is a very unusual Hanukkah this year as it begins on Thanksgiving night.In 2014 it begins on December 17th. It is a happy holiday that is celebrated by Jewish families all over the world. It is also known as The Festival of Lights. Children love this holiday. Do you know why? They get lots of presents and play dreidel. For those of you who are able to share about Hanukkah in your schools I have put together some wonderful free resources for you to check out and a few of my packets and freebies as well
I finally had a chance to revise both of my Hanukkah lessons. For Grades K-1 there is my new "It's Hanukkah Time" packet. I think my favorite activity is the Shared Reading Book called "Latke, Latke What Do You See? Here's a sneak peek. There is also the Poem, "Latke, Latke, What Do You See?" and a Writing Book Activity to go with the Shared Reading.
