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
May 8, 2015 ~ Iyar 19, 5775
Omer 34

What a week to play and grow
From chilly to sunny, but rain? Sadly, no.
Here is what kept us busy each day, 
We learn so much when we play:

Omer counting, 7 in a group
We counted blocks and stalks, and weeks--
whoop whoop!

Learning about Rabbi Akiva, who taught
That sharing and kindness is what we ought
To do each day, not just Lag ba'Omer
But every time we have an encounter.
Making it "count" is what's chashoov*
We need to be friendly to stay in the groove.

We went to the park, we ate roast potatoes
We strung beads and bracelets for fingers and toes.
And todah rabah to Abahs Yoav and Brett
who joined us at the park inspite of the threat they would get wet.

Watercolor, ooblek, attaching string to paper
Watching a green butterfly -or moth?- at its caper.

Notice below, our "Spotlight on Lunch"***
We bring healthy foods, we grow a bunch.

Shabbat Shalom u'Mevorach
Have a wonderful weekend and then a gutvoch!**
Judy, Ruth, and Inbal
"​*Hebrew for "important
**Yiddish for "a good week"
