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

May 27   19 iyar

So many things have happened lately!
We have caterpillars in the classroom, and we watched one of them grow, turn into a chrysalis and become a beautiful butterfly- that we released outside. We drew our caterpillars and the butterfly with various colors, like colored pencils, crayons and pastels.

We made Hummus and did blue-and-white art, in honor of Israel's birthday. We also decorated the classroom with Israeli flags.

We also celebrated Viola's birthday- happy birthday big girl! :)

We played with all kinds of wooden shapes and built and manipulated them.
We played with our geo-boards, stretching rubber bands and making different shapes
We also made art with liquid paint dripped on coffee filters. 
We did some collage art, which involved cutting, gluing and taping.
We did some stamping are with primary colors- blue, red, yellow.
We traced the outline off the kids on a big piece of paper- you can see the outcome on our wall.

We had a picnic- we took our lunch boxed and ate outside in the yard
We built a pretend fire for La"g Ba'Omer

We had lots of sensory fun with water play, ooblek, playdough and bugs, shredded paper, bubbles, moon sand and sea shells, colorful pom poms, soft blocks, hay and horses, sticky foam, blue water and rocks, dry leaves.

We had lots of fun together at circle time- with games like "bug on a rug", "Whats missing" memory game and "scoobi-doo". We even had a dance party!

The books we read:
The very hungry caterpillar (in Hebrew and English), butterfly books, books about Israel, Russel the sheep, Ma'ase Be-5 Balonim (a tale of 5 balloons- an Israeli classic), Susan laughs, 10 apples up on top, Ze' Lo Argaz (this is not a box), Maisy loves lemonade, once upon a potty.

Enjoy the rest of the week!
