We learned about Tu B'Shevat this week. We Focused on the concept of Ki haodom eitz hasadeh - A man is like the tree of the field. Each and every person has the ability and potential to grow. We need water just like a tree does. The Torah is compared to water and also by doing lots of Mitzvos. We too can grow and reap the fruits from our hard work. Plant the seed, water it and watch it carefully grow. We Painted trees using our hands and fingers. We stuck a picture of ourselves onto it. We decorated our thankful trees which had all the things we thank it for. We made a crown, sticking pictures of the shevet haminim - seven kinds onto it. We baked a cake which we crumbled into our cups (the mud of the trees) Then we used skewers to place fruits onto it and then placed it into our crumbled cake. We also made the almond tree that grows every year on Tu B'shevat in Eretz Yisroael. We had lots of fruits to eat too. We learned the letter chof and the shpy came and spoke about how to respect Hashem's - G-d's food. We went outside one day and decided together to do an experiment. What will happen to our snow if we bring it inside and what colour would it be. We had a fantastic, fun week and we cant wait to see you next week.
Love Morah Chaya'le and Morah Shirit.
