The holiday of Rosh Hashanah is one of our favorites! So many fun and exciting events and activities take place at Giving Tree. First, teachers set out invitations and provocations based on symbols of Rosh Hashanah like honey and apples for a sweet new year! The light studio and classrooms were full of Rosh Hashanah Reggio inspired experiences.
Children talked about bees, honey, and apples. They explored their classrooms and creative play spaces and made beautiful keepsake to celebrate Rosh Hashanah.
Children had the opportunity to bake honey cakes with Mrs. Georgia! They learned about recipes, and ingredients while measuring and mixing everything together.
We had our annual Ram visit where children had the opportunity to pet the ram and learn about his horns. Rabbi Schusterman came and blew the shofar for us as well!
We ended our week with the Oak Apple Market. The Oak children were proud to hand out apples at their apple market. They made money for all of the Giving Tree classrooms, decorated bags for their customers, and made all of the signs for the apple market. Not only did they have a blast serving their customers apples, they worked on essential skills like writing, literacy, math, social emotional skills, and creative arts.
