Happy Tu B’Shevat! It is such a joy to celebrate and honour trees. Our story today is ‘Our Tree Named Steve’ by Alan Zweibel and David Catrow.
Activity: Make a Steve!
This lovely and simple craft uses just a paper towel roll and some cardboard and paint. Make sure to give your tree lots of personality… I recommend adding lots of colour, pompoms, and maybe even some Googly eyes!
Hello everyone and happy Tu B’Shevat! Today we read…
Be A Friend to Trees by Patricia Lauber and illustrated by Holly Keller
Where the video asks you to make a list of things made out of wood, and then things made out of paper and cardboard, PAUSE the video and list the items you discover in the comments of this blog post. When the story is done, also comment one thing YOU can do to be a friend to trees.
Tu B’Shevat is such a wonderful holiday. It is so important to grow up appreciating nature and trees! Today I will read three books about trees. They are;
Are Trees Alive? by Debbie S. Miller, illustrated by Stacey Schuett
Have You Seen Trees? by Joanne Oppenheim, illustrated by Jean and Mou-Sien Tseng
Picture a Tree by Barbara Reid
Our activity this week is a beautiful but simple tree painting! All it takes is tracing your hand and part of your arm to make the trunk, painting it brown, and then choosing some pretty colours to make dots for leaves.
