Happy Hanukkah to our Jewish friends! Even though my family celebrates Christmas, I always liked to introduce my children (and my students when I was a Montessori teacher) to other cultures and traditions as well. I often read at least one book about Hanukkah and had at least one Montessori-inspired Hanukkah activity available during Hanukkah.
Here are some wonderful Montessori-inspired Hanukkah printables and activities from around the blogosphere:

Montessori Monday Link-Up
If you have some Montessori activity trays/lessons to share, please link up below. It’s fine to link up a post from your archives – and you may link up anytime during the week! Your post may be any Montessori-inspired activity or idea. It doesn’t need to be related to my Montessori Monday post.
Link up your exact post URL so that we can find your activity if we return to the linky at a later date (which I often do when I’m looking for activities for a roundup post). I publish the Montessori Monday post and linky at 6:00 a.m. EST each Monday and keep the linky open throughout the week.
Please place the Montessori Monday button (using the code from the right sidebar) in your post or put a link back to this post. Let’s use Montessori Monday to gain inspiration/ideas and to encourage each other!
