Ms. Lindsay's KDG Class Recap
February 1st, 2015
I was unable to be at Sunday School on Sunday, but the class had a great time with Leah
and my substitute (and cousin!) David Jaffe. They led a great lesson on Tu B'Shevat, the Jewish New Year/Birthday for the trees, which are starting to bloom in Israel. In class, they reviewed their Jewish & Me Tu B'Shevat packets and read "Happy Birthday, Trees," discussing how important trees are to us and the world. After all, tree provide food, oxygen, shade, a home for animals, and much more!
Everyone created q-tip trees (all of which I'm told were so unique from one another!) and they also planted parsley seeds, which should sprout just in time for Passover!
If you'd like to celebrate Tu B'Shevat at home, here is some additional information about the holiday and a sample seder by PJ Library.
Moving right along in our Alef Bet, the Hebrew letter was Mem, and the key word was Matzah!
