Congregation Netivot Shalom Preschool seeks to create a stimulating and enriching educational environment for each and every child.
We are devoted to helping children learn socialization skills, building their self-confidence and teaching them the preliminary skills to explore and experience the world independently from their parents.
In addition, we seek to ignite a spark in each child to lay claim to her or his Jewish heritage and commit him or her to a lifetime passion for learning.

[nevonim5771] HaShavuah

 


HaShavuah

Shalom Everyone,

 We made our own challah dough again this week.
 
The children are also still very excited, in a quiet sort of way, about our new "Mishkan Shalom."
 
This week we focused on Israel:
 
---We made passports, which we will add to next week.
---We talked about how Israel is both old and new.
---We were archeologists, digging up a broken bowl from the sand, cleaning it with brushes, and figuring out how the pieces fit together.
---We sang with Rabbi Creditor, "Am Yisrael Chai" and "Ha Tikva."  He also shared an Israeli flag and its father, the tallit.
---We read Sammy Spider's first trip to Israel.
---Ruth told a story, requested by a child, about Elmo taking a trip to Israel.
---We took a trip to Israel as a class.  After getting off the "airplane" we traveled to the Dead Sea and Masada. We were back in time for lunch.
---We made fruit kabobs (pineapple, bananas, melon, and strawberries).
 
Finally, we started our own Israel museum this week.  We have had a few submissions from families, including one from a family that is in Israel right now.  We will be continuing with our museum next week so if you haven't brought anything in yet or have something else you would like to bring in that would be fabulous.
 
Also, we will be talking with Adiel's aba, who is in Israel right now, via skype next week which will be very exciting!
 
Shabbat Shalom,
Dinah, Eve, Ruth, and William
