Hanukkuh-Notes

[Ed. All the Hanukkah printables are on the Christmas page  here.]

No one wants to feel left out during the holidays, so I’m posting some Hanukkah printables. One of them, Color the Hanukkah Gift, is already on my site, but this is a new version.

Menorah Candles – Students draw lines from notes to letters in the music alphabet. This includes a few ledger line notes, so it’s not for beginning readers.

Color the Hanukkah Gift – Students color the sections of the box according to note names. The notes are for beginning readers.

Name the Dreidel Notes is a way for students to practice writing notes on the staff.

Golden Menorah Composing Activity is a composing sheet that is a way to involve students in the process of notating their own music. The notes above the staves show the student the correct rhythm of the song.  All the student has to do is sit at the piano and write a melody line. Older students can add chords. To help your child get started, suggest they start and end on middle C.

If you know of anyone who can use this material, please send them a link or share on Facebook. Thanks!

    Hi Susan, I’m really late getting this but wanted to express my appreciation for it. I think it’s great to have something to offer ALL of our students this time of year so they do not feel left out. As always your printables are awesome!! Thanks and Happy New Year!

    Hi, Susan
    Thank you so much for these Hannukah printables. I have 3 sisters who are Jewish and I was feeling bad for them because they weren’t receiving any holiday printables for their notebooks. Sheet music, yes, but no activities. Now, I can include them. You are such a blessing to the piano teaching community! 🙂

      Thank you very much, Denise. I’m glad they had something special this time of the year.

  • Natalie Gibson Grimes

    Many thanks for sharing these resources, Susan!

    • Susan Paradis

      Glad you like them, Natalie!

  • Diane Lindsay

    Thank you so much for these! I’m excited to offer these at both private and group lessons.

    Hi Susan, thanks for the sheets. I do have a Jewish student who is still on pre staff reading. I’m planning on using the dreidel sheet as a lines and spaces activity to familiarize her with the staff. It’s very cute!

    • Susan Paradis

      Good idea. She could write S or L on the little dreidels, or circle the spaces in one color and the lines in another.

    Megan, you are welcome. Actually 2 of these were posted 6 years ago, so I polished them up, including completely starting over with the composing sheet. I wanted it in portrait orientation. Evidently no one knew they are here, because they were hardly ever downloaded. I hope they will be noticed more this season. So glad you can use them! I have a few more in the works but I don’t know when I will be able to finish them!

    I’m so happy to have these worksheets, Susan. For the first time I seem to have students of Jewish heritage and these are wonderful resources. I am very happy that they are a higher grade level than beginner. I have many 2nd and 3rd year students who will enjoy these materials.

    • Susan Paradis

      You’re welcome, Lavinia. I don’t know about your 3rd year students, but at least one should work for 2nd year students. I guess it depends on their age. I’ve been working on some for older students, and I don’t know if I will get them finished in time!

  • Elana

    How fantastic. I work in a jewish school and we are all going to compose a melody this week on your sheet. You are such a creative person Susan!! Thank you for your continued efforts to make music learning modern and fun

  • Megan Hughes

    Thank you thank you for these materials! A large portion of my students are Jewish and it is wonderful to have appropriate activities for them. More!
    Yours, Megan
