|Gracie: I see branches in the puddle!|
We continue to explore trees and discuss what they provide for us.
Morah Katie: What do trees give us?
Kian: They gives us food.
Dena: Turns dirty air into clean air.
Gracie: A place for tree houses.
Aaron: Wood to build things.
Efraim: Umbrella for shade.
We used clay to sculpt our very own trees.
We painted them when the clay set.
We have a beautiful forest.
With our fingers prepared and ready to explore, we went out on an expedition.
We made tree rubbings,
We searched for twigs and leaves for a sensory table.
The children explored and described the tree treasures.
In celebration for Tu B'Shevat, we have begun to create this year's mitzvah tree.
The children voted on a sweet peach as the fruit to represent their sweet mitzvahs.
It is delightful to see the tree filling so quickly.
