On Monday morning we did Havdallah. We had a close look at the twisted candle.
We played and explored our stacking magnets. We learned about how sometimes they attract and sometimes they repel.
We started talking about Tu-Be'Shvat, which will happen in a few weeks, and brought out plenty of books about trees and planting.
- We made play dough sculptures with our old play dough, and twigs and leaves.
- We made leaf art (we love spreading glue with our fingers).
- We talked about wood and how it comes from trees. We looked at some of our wooden materials, and noticed that our furniture is made out of wood.
- We brought down the Root-Vue, and planted some carrot seeds. We hope to watch them grow over the next few weeks. After planting the seeds, we read the book "the carrot seed" , and talked about how we eat the part of the carrot that is the root. We also looked at the seeds from Ofra's garden that are still attached to the plant, and talked about how the greens flower and then turn to seeds.
See you all on Tuesday!
