Holidays Around the Blog: Hanukkah

So the super awesome Mrs. Labrasciano put together this awesome linky for us to all share about what we do to celebrate the holidays! One of the best things we do in my class is share about Hanukkah! We have centers, read about it, and make latkes! 
 Home made Dreidel
Dreidel with a Pencil
We use a pencil with a copied paper to make pencil dreidels. 
 Edible Dreidels
Edible Dreidel
These are a few of my step dad's Jewish items. It helps to explain to the kids if you have the real pieces. We also make edible Dreidels out of pretzel sticks, marshmallow, and a hershey kiss!

We make latkes in class
This is the latke recipe that I use. It uses frozen hasbrowns which makes it so much quicker than grating potatoes!

Hash browns, eggs, flour, salt & pepper
I let the kids help with the measuring a mixing!

I use my griddle to cook them in a little oil.
I get the griddle nice and hot, then with a little oil I cook the latkes!

We eat them with sour cream & applesauce
Then I serve the latkes with applesauce & sour cream. 

Sentence order & recording center
I like all of my centers to match the theme we are working on. So this is the sentence ordering center. It also has an accountability sheet! So they get practice matching the words up then writing the sentence!

Make sure you go check out everyone's holiday celebrations! Also link up your holiday celebrations!
