I will update this page as I create or find excellent Pesach resources! And scroll down for my own special, ongoing personal Pesach project….
To begin with, on my own site…
- Great Big HUGE Pesach 5771 Lapbook / Lapfolder (all original PDFs, available by donation)
- My husband’s original 10-page Ten Plagues for Passover Colouring Pages
- Passover / Pesach Printables Activity Pack #1 and Activity Pack #2
- Haggadah Printable Overview – to read aloud with kids and/or incorporate into your own studies and/or Seder.
- The RonyPony Haggadah 5771. “Bare-bones” but complete Hebrew text interspersed with the English from the Haggadah Overview, above. This is just a “beta” version. Feedback welcome for next year!!!!
- A Small Pesach Mah Nishtana / Four Questions Book for Kids
- Other Pesach and Yom Tov resources here (scroll down to “Yom Tov”), including a cute Pesach Snakes & Ladders game!
Videos of various kinds:
- Fun free all-Hebrew Pesach video with Tom and his robot Moby (or is it the other way around?) from Brainpop.
- Fun Matzah documentary – with puppets!
- Watch Martha Stewart mispronounce Streit’s a million times and announce that Matzah comes from a Hebrew word meaning “matzah” in this amusing matzah factory tour.
Around the web – mostly printables:
- Amy Scheinerman’s Haggadah – some Hebrew text with easy English explanations – looks like a good starting point!
- Complete Ashkenazi Haggadah text – no English, but useful for copying and pasting into your own things (that’s what I’ve been doing all night!)
- Very nicely laid out in DOC form all-Hebrew Haggadah.
- Customs and Laws of Chodesh Nissan and Pesach – it’s only 12 pages, unlike some of the “booklets” (some are full haggadahs, upwards of 100 pages) – useful for a K/Gr 1-2 level.
- More detailed Customs and Laws of Chodesh Nissan and Pesach – a bit longer (50 pages) – appropriate for Grade 1-3ish.
- Introduction to Teaching Pesach seven simple lessons including sample scripts of the story if you’re new to teaching Pesach or just don’t know how to introduce it.
- Easy attractive printable Omer Counter for kids to mark off days – squares look big enough to use a bingo marker. Yay, we love bingo markers!
- Several nice lapbook mini-book components, including Hebrews in Egypt and Birth of Moses. (This is a Christian site, but these two resources look okay.)
- Pesach “Taboo” game – clues in transliterated Hebrew, and some are weird, but I have printed these on cardstock and think it should liven up a Pesach meal here and there. We like Taboo! (warning: fairly high-level… this is for the teeny-boppers, but there is a blank page you could print multiple copies of instead and make your own cards!) (you can see where I’ve written in translations so my mother, sisters and Ted can hopefully play along)
- How cute is this??? A FREE how-to-draw Pesach cartoons book from beloved (though not usually by me) illustrator David Sokoloff! I think I will replace our Draw-Write-Now lessons for the next two weeks with some cute talking matzahs and kiddush cups! There’s also a general Jewish Cartoons how-to-draw book, if you like this format.
- Great big 20-page Pesach colouring book from Tzivos Hashem (aka Chabad)… the pictures are a bit dated, but it’s VERY comprehensive, with all-English explanatory text (here’s a link to the same colouring book in Hebrew).
- More to come!!!
Speaking of which… can you guess from this series of pictures what my ongoing project is for this month???

Good stuff! Did you see the fun bubble wrap omer counter over on chinuch.org also? Much as I like the bubble wrap, though, I think the concept might be better accomplished for the 3yo with stickers. Definitely using the chart you have linked up - it's perfect!ReplyDelete
Saw it. Stickers is good, too. I like bingo markers. Frankly, anything that gets me to actually DO it this year. Maybe an Advent-style calendar where you get a piece of chocolate behind every one of 50 doors!!!ReplyDelete
