An Introduction to Hanukkah for Preschoolers

In my Global Kids class we learned about Hanukkah this week. We read Caleb's Hanukkah by Lisa Bullard and The Eight Nights of Chanukah by Leslie Newman. Both books are nice read alounds for ages 3-5 years. The books explain the story of Hanukkah as well as covering all the fun festivities like the menorah, latkes and the dreidel game. We also listened to Hanukkah muic and played the dreidel game. I was lucky to find a nice dreidel and gelt (chocolate coins) at my local Target. Here's a link for how to play dreidel with letter names and meanings.Happy Hanukkah!
