Sukkot Fun

We love Sukkot at Tree of Life Montessori! We built and decorated our sukkah in the play yard. 

Families joined us for a backyard picnic and made some mini-sukkot out of boxes! 

We also shook the lulav and etrog! 

We did our own harvest in our school garden as well.

New Work

We put out new practical life work based on interests, needs, as well as seasons. 

Today the new work was foot washing - something kind to do for a friend! It was in use all day.

School Garden Progress

Our school garden got underway this weekend, as many families pitched in to move mountains of soil and bark chips!

Our mountains await shovels!

Ready for planting!

Our play yard needed some new bark chips too.

Our yard smells like fresh cedar!
