Tu B'Shvat is the new year of trees, so it is fitting that Giving Tree celebrates Tu B'Shvat with the families! The teachers in each room planned Tu B'Shvat themed activities in their spaces. They set up invitations using tree materials, flowers, recycled materials, pink and green manipulatives, and loose parts. Families were invited to explore different invitations in the hallway and in the classroom to celebrate Tu B'Shvat.
The interactive Tu B'Shvat experience was a little different this year than in previous years. Teachers set up age appropriate activities in their classrooms and worked together with their neighboring classroom to set up an invitation in the hallway. This change allowed families to visit all of the classrooms and experience Tu B'Shvat from the toddler rooms to the preschool and prek rooms. The idea behind this change was to provide families with the opportunity to view different classrooms, visit with family members where children are comfortable, and to highlight ideas for age appropriate activities.
Our Giving Tree students and families had a wonderful time!
