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.

                   HaShavua ~ Nevonim
               September 19, 2015 ~ Elul 24, 5774

This week in Nevonim:
  • We looked at apple branches, leaves, and fruit from Yael's tree. Some children did observational drawing.
  • We heard Where the Wild Things Are and asked, "Where and when can we be wild?"
  • We heard stories about cats since we often play at being kittens and cats!
  • We ate round challah to get ready for Rosh HaShana.
  • We made "Rude Vegetable Stew"  (based on a book about root vegetables and Rosh HaShana called Talia and the Rude Vegetable Stew) and learned about tzedaka in the form of food.
  • We  visited the shul's giant food tzedaka box-the red barrel in the lobby. We added to it!
  • Some of us planted apple seeds in cups, adding compost from our worm bin.
  • We visited Hadas' aba Dan in his bucket truck as he installed street lights on University Ave! He told us about saving energy and showed us his special gear.
  • We made and ate oogat d'vash-honey cake.
  • We used round apple parts in painting to make prints.
  • Melita visited us and we sang about bees and butterflies.
Songs we've been singing:
  • Tapuchim ud'vash l'Rosh HaShana
(tune: Clementine)
  • Dip the apple in the honey, say a bracha loud and clear,
          Shana tova umetuka, for a happy sweet New Year.

(tune: Dreidel song)
  • I have a little shofar, I blow it every day, 
           and when I hear it calling, for a sweet year I pray.
           Oh, shofar, shofar, shofar, I blow it every day,
           and when I hear it calling, for a sweet year I pray.  

Shabbat Shalom U'mevorach!
Yehudit, Ruth, Anna, and Simone
  • If you ordered honey for the preschool fundraiser, it is available in the front office!
  • Tuesday, 9:15 Rosh Hashana Seder - Families Welcome!
