If you're teaching the holidays, share the traditions and history of Hanukkah with your students by reading books about the Festival of Lights together. From learning about beloved traditions (like making applesauce and latkes!) to discovering the history behind this important holiday, your class will enjoy incredible learning experiences through these read-alouds. 

For instance, students will love joining Clifford and Emily Elizabeth as they celebrate the wonderful traditions of Hanukkah together in Clifford Celebrates HanukkahMeanwhile, dinosaurs learn all about how they can join in on the festivities in How Do Dinosaurs Say Happy Chanukah? And in I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Dreidel, Bubbe serves up a dreidel during a family dinner! As you can see, there is plenty to explore when reading about Hanukkah with your class.
