Gan (3.5-6 years old)

Gan Update followed by their weekly schedules:

Highlights from the Gan….We read a wonderful story in honor of the holiday of Tu B’Shevat. I discussed with the children all the ways trees are helpful to us. In Israel, we would probably be wearing light weight jacket ,while here in Illinois we are wearing boots and heavy coats. We then made edible almond trees, which the children truly enjoyed. Ask your child why we made almond trees…they are the first to bloom in Israel. We continue to work on reinforcing our Hebrew letter recognition.
