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.

Shalom Nachshonim Families,
We had a very eventful week, including the chag of Lag B'Omer. Here are the highlights of what occurred at school this week.
-We continued our communal painting that we started the previous week. Paint, and then collaging with paper, yarn and glue. 
-At circle time, we did havdallah together. We talked about many different things that can be used as besamim.

-Tuesday morning we started our day by smelling different kinds of things like cinnamon, cloves, oregano, rosemary and fennel. We put them in empty salt shakers for us to use in the science area.
-outside in the sensory table we had squeeze bottles with soapy water.
-Melita and Menachem both came to sing with us this week.
-We had Ooblek in the sensory table for most of the week.
-The tent was set up outside in the play yard. Preparing for Lag B'Omer, we moved the tent inside and we pretended to have a bonfire. 

-On Wednesday, we had Elana, Etai's mom and Becca, Oliver's mom, join us on the field trip to strawberry Creek Park and Ofra's community garden. We saw bees, flowers and food. We ate kale and nibbled on parsley.-on our field trip to the garden, we collected some lemon thyme and we made tea upon our return to drink at lunchtime. We talked about the besamim we were smelling the day before and how the lemon thyme can also be used as besamim for havdallah.
-On Lag B'Omer, we ate baked potatoes at snack. We pretended to roast marshmallows made out of sticky foam in our pretend bonfire.
-We decided to eat lunch outside on Lag B;Omer. We were happy to discover that the Nevonim had built a pretend bonfire in the play yard. We ate around it.
-on Thursday we hung our communal piece of art. We spent three mornings working on it together. 
-we shared the play yard with the Nevonim on Friday

-ping-pong balls in the play yard.
-we prepared a little something for all the Emahs for the holiday of Mother's Day.
We look forward to another week of exploration and play.
Shavuah Tov,
Ofra and Vered
