FREE Hanukkah Counting Candles Printable Pack

Hanukkah is coming!  My kids are so excited.  We have celebrated Hanukkah in our home for several years now after discovering through DNA testing that some of Princess' ancestors are Jewish straight from Israel.

Celebrating this holiday is a way for her to feel connected to her birth family, even though she does not know who her birth father is.

This year the last two nights of Hanukkah will be spent in a hotel visiting Sunshine during her residential treatment stay.  Since I try to make sure our learning reflects the holidays we're celebrating, I created this new FREE Hanukkah Counting Candles Printable Pack to use with her.

Sunshine really struggles with her reading. I'm hoping that by using the nomenclature cards and clip cards with words on them she can practice reading numbers one through eight.

For those who are just learning how to count and identify numbers, this printable pack is equally fantastic!

The Hanukkah Counting Printable Pack includes three activities:

  • Counting Candles Nomenclature Cards with Numbers and Words
  • Counting Candles Clip Cards with Numbers
  • Counting Candles Clip Cards with Words

Each card includes candles from a menorah for each night of Hanukkah. The candles are arranged in the order they are lit as the numbers grow.

I debated back and forth about including the shammash or helper candle. In the end I decided it would be too confusing for little ones if I did include it. I also wanted to be sure to keep the focus on the eight nights of Hanukkah.

I encourage you to explain how the candles are lit to ensure there is a an understanding of the shammash or helper candle before presenting this activity.
