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

Here are a few of the things we did the last couple of weeks:

Yossi's Ima (mom), Melissa, came on Monday morning to do yoga with us- we played at being rocks, lizards, cats and cows.
We played with shaving cream and added liquid paint to it.
We let our wooden zebras graze in a field of sticky foam.
We played with magnets, noticing how they sometimes pull towards and sometimes push apart from one another.
We went for a walk to the community garden, where we munched on Ofra's kale and collected snails for our Kitah. We put the snails in our little terrarium, and we enjoy caring for them: we watch them, hold them, feed them, clean their habitat and draw them.
We explored onions and potatoes that are growing roots and leaves. We also tried peeling a few layers off the onion and discovered that its made of many layers.
We had lots of fun puddle jumping and playing in the rain.
At circle time we talked about safety and the importance of sticking together with your grown-up (teacher, parent etc.).

We started talking about Purim- we read books and sang Purim songs with Rabbi Menachem, and we had a "Purim story finger-puppet show". We also made our own groggers, painting cardboard cones with tempera paint, after the paint dried we glued on decorations like feathers, mulch and colored paper, and finally we filled them and sealed them!

In the sensory table: we had yarn and scissors, and also shredded paper and liquid paint.
Books we enjoyed included Alef-Bet, Mitz Petel, Puppies puppies, Purim, It's Purim time, Doodle bites, Hands are Not for Hitting

We hope you are enjoying this rainy weekend and that you all remember the daylight savings change (YAY to longer afternoons!
See you Monday :)
Vered and Anna
