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

Shalom Families!

Last week we explored water, after the rain. How it freezes when we cool it, and how it becomes steam when heated. We read the story "Polo and the Dragon" in Hebrew. In the story, a sea is turned to ice, and then melts with the dragon's fire. We made ice in containers, and the next day we explored it. We put salt on it and watched it melt, then we poured liquid paint on it and watched the paint spread in the cracks made by the ice. Very cool (pun intended)! We also made herbal tea with leaves from our garden. We noticed the steam as the water started to boil. We compared two kettles and sang "I'm a little tea pot". As we explored water, we also read the book "Float", about a boy and his paper boat in the rain. We made powder paint art, spraying water on the paint with droppers.
We made Black and white art, using white pastels, pencils and chalk on black paper, inspired by Be'Resheet and the separation of light and darkness.
During lunch, we listened to our food as we ate it, and noticed if it's crunchy.

This week we had Davita with us most of the week. We did q-tip paintings, and played with pom-poms, grabbers and egg cartons. We also played with foam paint- that was messy and fun! On Thursday, we made french toast for snack- so exciting!
Ofra's friend, Anthony, came to volunteer at school. He joined us in the play yard and ate lunch with us.
We now have photos with names of all the kids on the  Kitah door, and the kids can "sign in" in the morning and move their picture from "Ba'Bait" (at home) to "Ba'Gan" (at school).
Judy brought us two new special friends- caterpillars! We put them in the butterfly box and plan on caring for them and watching them grow and see what happens. We brought down books about butterflies and we sing butterfly songs. If you have fennel growing near your home, we would love to have a few new branches for our little ones to eat. Thanks!
That's all for now
Shavoua Tov! (Have a good week!)
