This is the Hanukkah section of the site so you can find all 12 worksheets related to this holiday right here. There are coloring pages, party invitations, and of course dreidels. This Hanukkah worksheet contains the recipe for potato latkes, which might be fun to make in class if you have the ability to do so or else could be sent home with students who are interested in cooking. The hot oil required for cooking might make this inappropriate for classes with young students but you could also make them at home and bring them to school for your students if you had the time and your school allowed you to give the students food. Another worksheet from this section is a craft activity where students make dreidel cubes and then play with them. While this could be very fun, be sure to relate the activity in some way to learning English. Take a moment to look at the other available worksheets too. This section is still growing so check back to see recently added worksheets and take a moment to upload any Hanukkah worksheets you have made in the past. Other busy teachers will appreciate your contribution to the site.
Hanukkah (Hebrew: חֲנֻכָּה, Tiberian: Ḥănukkāh, nowadays usually spelled חנוכה pronounced [χanuˈka] in Modern Hebrew, also romanized as Chanukah or Chanuka), also known as the Festival of Lights is an eight-day Jewish holiday commemorating the rededication of the Holy Temple (the Second Temple) in Jerusalem at the time of the Maccabean Revolt of the 2nd century BCE. Hanukkah is observed for eight nights and days, starting on the 25th day of Kislev according to the Hebrew calendar, which may occur at any time from late November to late December in the Gregorian calendar. The festival is observed by the kindling of the lights of a unique candelabrum, the nine-branched Menorah or Hanukiah, one additional light on each night of the holiday, progressing to eight on the final night. The typical Menorah consists of 8 branches with an additional raised branch. The extra light is called a shamash (Hebrew: שמש, "attendant" or "sexton") and is given a distinct location.
