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

Hashavua ~ Nevonim

17 April, 2015 ~ Nisan 28, Omer 13

Hello, all, and welcome back!
   This week we have begun learning about Israel, in preparation for Yom Ha'Atzma'ut/Israel Independence Day. We're beginning to learn about Israel's many features and we will be celebrating her birthday! We have made a good start on our Israel "museum," which will stay up for another week. Thanks for your lovely contributions to our exhibit!
   We were also visited by Matt from from JNF, the Jewish National Fund/Keren Kayemet L'Yisrael, which plants trees in Israel and reclaims water, among other projects.We donated some tzedakah to JNF and have enough to plant a tree! We "traveled" to Israel, made passports and stamped them, built a Kotel/Western Wall, and made Israeli flags. We did salt art, after learning about Yam HaMelach, the Dead Sea.
Other highlights:
  • A green caterpillar visited our garden!
  • Picture day with Roots & Shoots
  • New words: flag/degel. Caterpillar/zachal.
  •  Beading!

Reminder: Field trip Wednesday to Lawrence Hall of Science

Shabbat Shalom U'mevorach!
Ruth, Judy, and Inbal
