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.

HaShavuah - Nevonim

Hashavuah
January 20, 2012
25 Tevet 5772

Well as the weather has gotten colder and rainier, we have been talking
about winter alot! We made a great 3 dimensional collage with snow and
igloos hanging up in the kitah now. We sang rain songs and learned a
very old prayer for rain with Rabbi Shalom. "moshiv haruach vmorid
hageshem." We made rain sounds and chanted on Wednesday and the rain
came on Friday! We have been talking and learning about hibernating and
animals that hibernate. We have been reading about many of these
animals in Jan Brett's Snowy Days book.Today, some of us got very wet in
the rain! We also explored what happens to chalk when it gets wet -
both outside and on a mass media mural in the kitah.

We learned about the power of yeast as we measured and kneaded pizza
dough with Jeanine. We custom made individual pizzas the next day as we
have been playing restaurant lots of different ways and we will continue
with this theme next week!

B'shalom,

Nevonim Teachers,
Caitlin, Ruth and Shirley
