Around the World...Hanukkah

For eight nights, Hanukkah is celebrated with prayer, lighting the candles in the menorah, and food. Children play games (dreidel), sing songs, and exchange gifts. The menorah has nine candles, a candle for every night, plus a helper candle placed in the middle.  Latkes are served with applesauce and sour cream. The dates of Hanukkah change because this holiday follows the lunar cycle. This year, 2017, it is celebrated on December 12th to December 20th.
There are colorful vocabulary cards for posting and informational text.

A mini book is provided for guided reading and followed by a graphic organizer for children to recall facts.

There is a dreidel template for a die and rules to play a dreidel game with your class using coins.

Writing includes informational, narrative, and sensory.

There is a class cover and final write pages.

Word work includes:
ABC Order, Syllables, Making Words, Word Search and Parts of Speech.

For the math center there is a partner game that focuses on number words to 12.
