Hanukkah Ideas and Resources

Today I am here to share some Hanukkah resources that you can use in your primary classroom.  Every year I have a child who celebrates Hanukkah.  I always let them share traditions their family may have.  It’s always fun to hear about their traditions from a kid perspective.

Dreidel Game

A favorite activity we like to play is the dreidel game.  It has a great math element to it…bonus!  You can read about how to play here.  First, I pull out the dreidels and give my students some time to practice their spin.  This can be hard for some of my little firsties.

I made a chart that I put at each table to remind them of what each spin does.  Grab yours here!

A fun treat I have made with my students are these marshmallow dreidels.  I didn’t use the blue sugar, but my students still loved them!
