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 15, 2015 ~ Iyar 26, 5775
                                           Omer 41
This week's highlights:
  • The theme of opposites has emerged from a number of different events ..
    • Discussing mixed messages, opposites, when say "You are my friend, you aren't my friend,"
    • Studying nocturnal and diurnal animals, opposites, and their habitats after our trip to the Lawrence Hall of Science, and 
    • And talking about doing the opposite of what you were asked to do.

  • With this theme running strong ...
    •  We read Mitz Petel, a wonderful Israeli children's tale and the subject of the June 7 puppet show at CNS, and found all the opposites in the story,
    • We ate lunch in the morning and snack in the afternoon! Opposite of what we usually do!
    • We played Mah Hahefech/What is the opposite? and came to find the children had a great deal of Hebrew vocabulary to describe the opposites they found.
    • We did opposite art with dark and light, and
    • We played the "silent and loud" game listening to the opposite sounds.

  • Other activities this week included ...
  • Tracing our bodies on large paper and decorating the figures, 
  • Celebrating Kaila's birthday with strawberries and cream - YUM!
  • Reading Danny Loves a Holiday: Lag Ba'Omer, Cheesecake for Shavuot, and  Wooden Sword in book club,
  • Having a Pajama Day, and 
  • Planting green beans and harvesting our pea crop.
Next week we will engage in many Shavuot-related activities as we mark the end of the Omer period, the spring harvest, and the Giving of the Torah.
Shabbat Shalom U'Mevorach!
Judy, Ruth, and Inbal
