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 - Nachshonim

March 9, 2012
15 Adar, 5772

Shalom Nachshonim Families,
We have had a really exciting week at school, Purim has been on our
minds and we had are really great Purim holiday.

- Out in the play yard on Monday, we set up a mirror on a table and the
children were able to paint their own faces however they pleased. Some
children painted their friends faces.
- The anticipation for hamentaschen and costumes was rising all week
long. We talked a lot about our preparations for a Purim parade, a
carnival, and sending mishloach manot.
-We have been enjoying various games with our groggers at circle time.
We called out many different names of people we know, but we waited to
shake our groggers only when we heard Haman's name. A second game we
played was where we shook our groggers very quitely and gradually got
louder and louder. Then the loudest! We then gradually got quiter and
quiter until our groggers were silent.
-We baked oznei Haman (which translates to Haman's ears)/Hamentaschen
- We decorated paper plates that we used to package our mishloach manot.
-We had our Purim parade! We paraded through the building, visiting
people in their offices and through the library during morning Minyan.
-Immediately after the parade, we had our Purim carnival! We played
games in our social. Games, costumes, bubbles, facepainting, dancing!

- Havdallah with Malka! It has been a long time since we had Malka come
in and lead Havdallah with the Nachshonim and the Nevonim together.

- The guinea pigs were in our kitah four out of five days this week. We
love feeding them. They have very big appetites
-On Tuesday and on Friday we changed the bedding in the guinnea pig cage
to be sure that they have a home that is clean and nice

- Ooblek!!

-We made challah of course.

Shabbat Shalom
Ofra and Anna
