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

October 24   Tishrei 30
This week we have been expanding and exploring sensory play!
-On Monday we made the Ooblek from cornstarch and water. 
-Indoor water play
-Out in the play yard, the children have been playing with dirt and mud in our plastic turtle pool.
-more finger-painting this week!
- We played with colorful soft pom-poms in combination with the grabbers we use at snacktime and also egg cartons. We did some sorting and counting.
-We cooked pancakes on Thursday for snack. 
-Melita came to see us with her guitar.
-We have pulled out some more complex puzzles.

-We are focusing on practicing in using language that is suitable for sharing and taking turns.

-We have a new documentation board up in the hallway about Tzva'im/colors and we are collecting and documenting thoughts and quotes about the images. 
-We baked challah on Friday for pretend Shabbat. 

- We were gifted some wheat grass and we offered it to Rena and Shira. We let them enjoy it outdoors on blanket while their cage was cleaned. 
- We continue to take opportunities to look at and spell out our written names This happens when we pick a name to feed the guinea pigs, when we write names on challah bags, when placing a name on a piece of art, any time is a good time to learn to recognize our names. 
-We have some great books in our reading corner right now
"Lefamim"/Sometimes - A book about emotions in Hebrew
"Germs are Not for Sharing" - All very relevant for us, we wash our hands often at school
"Tusikim"/Tushies -  A book in Hebrew about both animals and humans and using the potty
"Gobble It Up!" - a songbook with a CD about animals surviving and eating.
"One Fish. Two Fish. Red Fish. Blue Fish." - A Dr. Seuss classic
We hope you have a pleasant weekend.
Shabbat Shalom!
Ofra and Vered
