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

February 20, 2015
1 Adar 5775

Dear Nevonim Parents,

Last week ...

We said goodbye to Anna and welcomed Inbal into our kitah.  We were also joined by Ofra, which is a great treat for all the children.

On Tuesday, we went to Urban Adamah.  Thank you to all the parent drivers and chaperones.  We fed the chickens and the goats.  We collected eggs. We planted peas.  We picked peas and tasted kale.  We had a picnic under the tent.  We had a lot of fun and learned a lot.

We also traced our arms to make trees.  We learned the word Pereg - poppy seed.

We talked about what makes us happy.  We made happy books and we did happy dances.

This week ...

We made bead and wire sculptures over several days. We explored many new nature items that Inbal brought to the kitah. We also harvested and tasted our first crop of lettuces - then we said a shehechiyanu.

We welcomed in the month of Adar! We started telling the Purim story and reading Purim books.

In book club we finished reading Ellen's Lion and started reading Danny Loves a Holiday by Sidney Taylor.

Shabbat shalom,

Nevonim teachers,

 Anna, Inbal, Ofra, Ruth
