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

Hashavua Sheavar/Last week
February 18, 2015 29 of Sh’vat, 5775

Shalom Nachshonim Families,

As promised we made Lemonade from the lemons of Lauren’s tree.  The kids were rolling them and juicing them.  We poured it into a big jug and added honey.  We then drank it for two days at our snack time.

While we were playing outside we started a communal painting.  We used pastels colors.  We brought it in and every day we stuck pieces of paper and strings which we cut with scisors  We used glue, glue sticks and paint.  Some of us had more paper stuck to our fingers than on the paper.

On Tuesday we made finger paintings in the Kitah, a great sensory activity.

We filled up our outside sensory table with blue bubbles and put a lot of our ocean animals in.

Melita came to sing songs with us.  We danced and used our musical instruments.

Colin substituted for us on Thursday.  He brought his Mandolin, he played for us and let us all try it. We noticed how similar it is to guitar.

Vered read us a new book in Hebrew she brought from home “Haachbar ve HaTapuach” (the mouse and the apple).  It’s a fun book about a mouse practicing being patient. We ended up liking it so much that we read it again a couple of days later.

Ofra brought her dehydrator machine from home.  We cut a whole bunch of fruit: Strawberries (tootim), Bananas (Bananot) and Apples (Tapuchim).  Ofra had a great idea to cut our bananas with an egg slicer.  That worked really well.  We placed the cut up fruit gently and neatly on the dehydrator trays and left them overnight.

On Thursday the dried fruit was ready.  We took it of the trays and ate it all.  It was a big hit and we’re thinking of doing it again soon.

I hope your week is going well,

We’ll send you an update soon about this week adventures,

Vered and Ofra
