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.

Hashavuayim ~ Nachshonim

HaShvuayim ~ Nachshonim 
October 30, 2015 ~ Cheshavan 17, 5776

Highlights from our busy two weeks:

Developing our fine motor skills: colored pom poms, grabbers and egg cartons. Making art using droppers on coffee filters with liquid paint.  Colored pegs and boards sorting, placing inside holes. 

Made music. @ the sensory table using wooden spoons, metal bowls and water. 

Shiloh's parents bought us a butterfly's habitat, books and soon to come caterpillars. It prompted many conversations, stories and even circle time discussing the butterfly life cycle. 

Judith came to spend a couple of days with us. Our favorite song that she sings is "Mr. Crocodile, you can't catch me". 

We made dots using corks and paint. 

Strawberry Creek Park, so much fun. Thank you to Nicole (Ella's mom) and Ken (Sarah's dad) for holding our hands and joining us on our trip. 

Rabbi Menachem comes every Wednesday to sing with us. 

We got to use our yard for the first time last week. This week we got a whole bunch of new toys to play with outside.  We often get to enjoy our Nevonim friends when we go outside. The also let us play in their kitah. 

Last week when Melita came she taught us some songs in Spanish. This week we sang a lot about spiders. 

This Monday our friend Yossi joined our Kitah. Welcome friend!

More sensory play outside:  Oobleck was so messy and so much fun. Washed babies. Played with sawdust. 

On Fridays we made our Challah and joined our community in singing and celebrating (pretend) Shabbat. 

Enjoy your weekend

Shabbat Shalom,

Anna, Judith and Vered
