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
September 25, 2015 ~ Tishrei 12, 5776

This was a fabulous week of learning of all kinds for the Nevonim, touching on Rosh HaShanah, Yom Kippur and Sukkot! 
Here are some highlights:

  • We used our apple slicer and Ofra's dehydrator to make dried apple rings--delicious!!
  • We took small groups to find tzedakah boxes throughout the building. We gathered them and observed them, noting similarities and differences.
  • We investigated the food barrel, our biggest tzedakah box here at Congregation Netivot Shalom! We put some grape juice bottles in it.
  • We made our own tzedakah boxes!
  • We made "Rude Vegetable Stew" based on the eponymous Rosh HaShana book.
  • We heard the story of Yonah and the Big Fish.
  • We talked about Yom Kippur and gave each other band-aid stamps for hurt feelings.
  • We decorated the synagogue sukkah with chains and cardboard art.
  • We sang Sukkot songs with Melita and Menachem.
  • We used sandpaper to smooth our outdoor block set
  • We did an art experiment with chalk and glue.
Shabbat Shalom U'mevorach, and Chag Sameyach!
