On Monday we planted some herbs in a new garden bed and made sure to water them well.
The noise of the saw was a bit of a concern, but Rodney made sure not to do any cutting while we were outside. It was fun to watch his work!
Showing a new friend how to get water (and finding out what happens when you try to fill a colander!)
Collage had sticks, leaves, and red beads (blossoms) for Tu B'Shevat
There is always time to share a drink of water with friends.
The colder, wetter weather did not deter outdoor work.
On Tu B'Shevat (Wednesday) we made a big tree poster for our classroom!
Outside we dug a hole and planted a little fig tree.
Holding the tree in place together.
It takes many helpers to plant a tree! Carrying soil in a shovel to put around the tree.
Children learned how to scoop up the soil with a large shovel and move it over to the hole.
Watching Rodney finish our climbing structure!
We tasted nine different foods that come from trees, including fruit, nuts, and for a special dessert surprise, a small square of chocolate!
We beautified our space with flower arrangements.
A lot of spontaneous outdoor scrubbing happened.
Scrubbing a flower pot.
Finally our new structure was ready for action!
Going under is just as fun as climbing up.
What a busy week together. Shabbat Shalom!
