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

1 May, 2015 ~ Iyar 12, Omer 27

Greetings!
​This was a very full week, as we extended our interest in and exploration of animal homes from last week:
  • We looked at birds nests closely,
  • We searched for animals and their homes in our neighborhood and found:
  • a spider web,
  • a cocoon,
  • a bee,
  • an ant,
  • a beetle, 
  • a spider,
  • and a fly.
We examined sea animal dwellings! 
N​
ew words: ​Yahm-sea. Shablul -slug. Tzadaf - shell.​
​     ​
We built bird feeders.
​ This involved designing and creating, and Nevonim came up with 5 separate ways of creating these feeders!​
 
​     ​
As we continue to appreciate the outdoors and the warm weather, w
e drew our yard ideas for
​our new outdoor classroom!
 
 
​We also engaged in ​w
ater and mud play
​ with lots of splashing.​
 
 
​We also ​
learned about
​the mitzvah 
in the Torah portion of Kedoshim
​ of making sure that people who are blind are safe. We looked at Judy's supplies from when she taught the blind, including a long white cane, special glasses, a blindfold, and photos from her training.​
​We heard stories about people who use these canes to walk and be safe.
 
 
​Shabbat Shalom U'mevorach!
Judy, Ruth, and Inbal​
