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

Shalom Nevonim Families!
I hope everyone has been enjoying the Pesach break! We would like to fill you in on the two weeks that led up to Pesach.

Pesach activities:
- Inspired by the journey through the desert, we learned how to make sand play dough for sculpting.
- We talked a lot about water in the story of Passover, and talked about sweet and salty water.
-We added salt to our temper paints as an experiment. It makes the paint watery and have a bumpy texture when dry. 
- We sang every Peach song we know!
- We took a field trip to the community garden to collect Chazerret and Carpas (lettuce and parsley) for our seder plates. Thanks to Kazia, our friend and preschool volunteer, for joining us!
- The children made matzah from scratch in the oven.
- We acted out parts of the Pesach story. 
- We made sock puppets inspired by the people in the Pesach story
- The children washed the babies in the sensory table. 
- The children did some dishwashing with sponges in the sensory table as we were thinking about cleaning in preparation for Passover
- We used with brooms, wet rags and dust pans to clear the Kita of chammetz .
- We made charoset!
- We played hiding games with the pretend afikomen 

-We had a chance to collect rain water in jars and add powder paint for art making. 

Chag Sameach!
Ofra, Ruth and Judy
