Apples Galore Mean Shana Tova!



Our preschool classes are deep into learning about apples because apples mean Rosh Hashana is coming.



The Kindergarteners even went to a local orchard to pick apples. Then they recorded their observations:


 

The Purple Room, on the other hand, doesn't even have to go to an orchard, they've got their very own apple tree growing in their classroom, and greatest miracle of all: It grows red and green apples!
 


The Blue Room kids have been exploring apples through art and math. Using the light table, transparencies and red and yellow paint, they explored mixing colors. Then they used stencils to make the outline of an apple, an activity that promotes the development of fine motor skills. The results are these fun "light table apples."



Shana tova!
Wishing everybody a sweet New Year!
