This week we have continued our learning about trees for Tubishvat. This included reading related books and making an apple tree. Making the apples we made use of plasteline which the children rubbed into a apple cut out. This is a task that works their fine motor skills, and requires a degree of concentration and perseverance. Today they were also introduced to parts of the tree, making use of montessori classifaction cards. Later this week we will be making ‘parts of the tree’ booklets.
