Gelt is a new word for many children, being the chocolate coins given out at the Jewish festival of Hanukkah. Children can learn the word and the letter shapes as they trace over the letter with their finger.
Gelt Finger Tracing
Eaten at Hanukkah, a sufganiyot doughnut has jam in the middle and icing - or a sprinkle of icing sugar - on the top. You can see one on this finger tracing worksheet! Practise letter formation by tracing over the letters and then colour in the picture.
With an m, n, r and h in the same word, menorah is a good word to get the feel of that letter shape. Trace over the letters with your fingers. Can children feel the similarities?
