Chanukah Lapbook Plans…

Postscript:  If you want, you can see how it all turned out!

image Yup, it’s been a while, but I’m hoping to make another lapbook!  Despite the fact that it’s Chanukah, which is one of my least-beloved holidays because, well, the connotations.  “Holiday season” and all that.  Humbug!

Outside links (let me know if you know of others!):

  • Homeschoolshare has a free Chanukah lapbook.  We’re probably not going to use the whole thing, but there are some components I like…
  • Our Jewish Homeschool Blog has a bunch of great ideas for Chanukah in her printable packet here.
  • A few useful ASL signs for Chanukah printable here which could be incorporated into a lapbook or used in some other way.
  • And, of course, there are my own Chanukah printables here.

Here are a few things we’ll be including in our lapbook…

Other ideas I haven’t quite figured out yet:

  • My Chanukah five senses (based on this one)
  • Hebrew vocabulary, maybe based on New Words Flap?
  • popsicle-stick Menorah of some kind…

For the cover, I figure I’ll have Naomi do a handprint menorah picture like this one.  And write a title neatly as well.

We won’t have too much time… we’re finishing up our Frogs science unit this week, and then I figure we’ll do Chanukah for 2 weeks, then work our way up to Human Body, introducing it with an All About Me unit just for fun.

I’m skipping some of the animal units in our Living Learning Science curriculum because if we do them all, we won’t have time to do human body before Pesach.  Believe it or not… it’s not exactly close, but since we’ll have to stop for Purim also, there isn’t THAT much time left in the year!!

(after Pesach, we’ll hopefully pick up the Living Learning Science with PLANTS – and what a great time of year for it!!!)

Are Jews an "underrepresented community" in children’s publishing?

I applied for a writing award yesterday. I'm not going to get it, but that's not what I wanted to share with you. Here's what I wanted to share. This box:   I stared at this box for a long, long time. And then I decided not to check it. Even though I believe people like me truly are underrepresented, we probably wouldn’t fit the definition in other people's minds. Why? Well, because we're European. Because we are white. Because as everybody knows, Jews control the media. (do we???) If anything, some people say, Jews are over -represented in publishing. And yet. Some definitions are careful not to include people like me. Like this random definition from the State of California which defines underrepresented for some very specific business purposes as: "an individual who self-identifies as Black, African American, Hispanic, Latino, Asian, Pacific Islander, Native American, Native Hawaiian, or Alaska Native, or who self-identi
