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

HaShavuah - June 3   26 Iyar 
 
Lots to report from these last 2 weeks:

  • We have a sensory table in the kitah now, containing fun things to explore like pompoms and cones. Would you like some ice cream??
  • We made sand playdough with sand from our yard!
  • We watched a caterpillar become a butterfly, and set it free in the garden. It's an Eastern Tiger Swallowtail, yellow and black. Miraculous!
  • Celebrating wheat as we count the Omer, we made scones, french toast with dates and challah with dates-delicious! We have been reading library books about bread from all over the world.
  • We juiced apples and added wheatgrass we grew in the kitah. Ofra taught us that chlorophyll would turn the wheatgrass green, and it did!
          We celebrated the birthdays of Orly and Nili with a vegetable train
  • For Lag BaOmer we had a medura/bonfire (pretend) outside, and enjoyed baked potatoes and watermelon, like they do in Israel (for real)!
        We pressed flowers onto fabric.  These pieces of art are hanging in the kitah.  
        Come see!
Onward to Shavuot.

Shavua tov,
Judy, Ofra, and Ruth
