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 ~ Nachshonim

HaShavuah
1 kislev, 5776 
November 13, 2015

Here's a taste of what we did in the last couple of weeks:

We joined our Nevonim friends for Havdalah on Monday
We strung beads on pipe cleaners and glued colorful piece of paper, working on our fine motor skills
We glued fallen leaves and talked about autumn
We played with ooblek- what a wonderful sensory experience
We had dinosaurs hiding in the hay in our sensory table outside. on another day we had small cats and dogs hiding in sawdust bedding- they were fun to dig out!
We made pancakes, experimenting with measuring, mixing and counting
We played in the social hall when it rained
We enjoy showing off what we can do when we play "Scooby Doo"
We had lots of dance parties, with hit songs like: Dance around and jump around, The freeze song, and Animal action

We also had our parent-teacher conferences this week. The parents got to hear a little about their kids and how they enjoy the school, and the teachers got to talk to grown ups for a whole day! It was a pleasure hearing all the interesting thoughts, notions and ideas that came up from the conversations with the parents. We thank you for trusting us with your most important persons

We have been reading a lot of books in Hebrew and English, sometimes even reading the English books in Hebrew and the other way around. These are some of the books we read:
Pete the Cat
Shira nosa'at ha'ira (Shira going to town)
Driving my Tractor
Press Here
I Can Help
Thank You Bear
The Little Mouse, the Red Ripe Strawberry and the Big Hungry Bear
The Deep Blue Sea
Bark, George
I Went Walking

We had many guests lately. Last week Judith the sub came to hang out with us, and we also had Colin over, and he played his Mandolin for us. This week Ruth, our beloved Nevonim teacher, was with us. The reason for all those visits is that our teacher Vered got hurt and needs to rest.
Although we like having guests, we miss Vered very much and wish her Refuah Shlema! (Good health)!

Shabat Shalom, Everyone
