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.

Shlosha Shavuot - Nachshonim

Shlosha Shavuot - Nachshonim
April 17th, 2016 - 9th of Nisan, 5776 - ט׳ בְּנִיסָן תשע״ו

Highlights from our last three weeks:

*  Art  - We made a communal painting, used stamps and sharpened our own pencils

*  Sensory - We immersed ourselves in packing peanuts in cardboard boxes, played with soft blocks and shaving foam, oozed in ooblek,  played with kinetic sand, sawdust, pom poms

*  We’ve celebrated Ella’s birthday with fruit and cream parfait.  Delicious!! 

*  Cooking - We made Banana and Rice milk smoothies. We made Charoset with apples, raisins and cinnamon and boiled eggs.

*  We set our slugs free back to nature

*  We practiced our Fire Drill routine

In preparation for passover we did Chametz cleaning - finding “challa” in the room, we washed dishes and babies at the sensory table. We played with plastic frogs, pretended to be slaves and crossed an imaginary sea.

Some of the books we're reading:

Dira Le haskir
Bear snores on
Who’s in a family 
Daisy goes to preschool
Hands are not for hitting
We all go traveling by
I have four questions
Big brother little brother
One Special day
The egg
Big book of sea creatures
Passover books
We hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

Looking forward to seeing you all next week healthy and happy

HaShavua'im - Nevonim

Hello, all,

Here are some highlights from the last 2 weeks:
Last week was brought to you by the letter P. We planted (corn, fennel, and kale seeds), began to learn about Pesach/Passover, played in packing peanuts, and went to the park.
This week:
- we were visited by a wild turkey (it strolled in the lot, flew onto Lauren's car, then onto a rooftop),
- put our babies into baskets on the Nile (blue fabric),
- looked at all kinds of Haggadot, and even
- took a journey from slavery to freedom (including walking on dry land between our blue carpet sea.
- We sampled Hard boiled eggs as well.
On Friday we did a lot of planting of herbs, and learned how to carefully remove a leaf to eat, but only when the plant is big and strong.
Shabbat Shalom umevorach,
Judy, Ruth and Ofra
