Happy Birthday to the Trees!

It may be cold outside but spring is blooming in PreK!

Our Kehillah has been learning about the holiday of Tu’Bishvat (the birthday of the trees).

We have been collaborating on a beautiful mural depicting springtime in Israel! The children created brightly colored flowers, ladybugs, trees with lush, green leaves, dragonflies, butterflies, and more! We used various materials to create our mural including egg cartons, cellophane, beads, construction paper, pipe cleaners, glitter, paint, tissue paper, and actual tree branches from outside!

We also enjoyed a Tu’Bishvat Seder! We sampled many different foods that grow on trees including oranges, olives, pears, almonds, figs, dates, clementines, bananas, and apples. Yum!
