Tu B'Shevat in Homeschool Kindergarten
For circle time, I read the books on Tu B'Shevat to all three kids (even though the twins could probably read them independently). I also read them a book of children's rhymes in Hebrew (not about trees but about nature and farm animals). Then we talked a little bit about why we need trees and tried to think of worlds that had to do with trees ("tall", "strong", "shady", etc..). This discussion didn't last too long because H (2 years old) lost interest fairly quickly. Then we sang "The Green Grass Grows All Around", which has fun arm movements about a tree.
