Dear Grade 2 Parents,
In this week’s class, we explored the upcoming holiday of Tu B’Shevat. Students learned about the different ways we celebrate the birthday of the trees. We learned about the traditional foods that we eat during this time, as well, we practiced reciting the prayers over these special foods.
Students had the opportunity to create their own plants and develop plans as to how they will help the earth and plant their own tress. Working with the Shinshinim, students compared and contrasted the traditions undertaken in Canada and in Israel regarding Tu B’Shevat.
