Today we celebrated the Jewish holiday Tu B’Shvat, the birthday of the trees.  We colored pictures of trees.  We read a few books about how important trees are in our lives, including:  A Tree is Nice by Janice May Udry and Red Leaf, Yellow Leaf, by Lois Ehlert.
We talked about what we need to do to take care of our trees.  Then we planted some seeds to bring home:  basil and marigold seeds.  We danced to a Tu B’Shvat song, and did an art project glueing leaves onto a tree trunk.   Finally we got to participate in the Or Emet Tu B’Shvat seder with the whole synagogue.
