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

November 18 / 17 cheshvan

This week we continued our butterfly exploration:
We made fold overs with finger paint, and talked about symmetry and how the butterfly's wings are symmetrical. We played with butterfly hand puppets and toys that show all the stages (caterpillar- chrysalis, butterfly), books, toy bugs etc. We even put our caterpillars on the table for a closer look. We saw them move and eat, and some of the kids attempted to draw what they saw.
 
We got out some car toys and street signs. They were such a big hit that we also brought a giant cardboard tube, and sent the cars racing down the tunnel. 
 
We have been playing "what's missing" at circle time- we show a few objects, cover them and the take one away and ask the kids what's missing. Practicing our short term memory is fun!
 
Making Hummus: On Tuesday we looked at dried garbanzo beans, and soaked them. On Wednesday we looked at the beans after they soaked up the water, and noticed how much they expanded, and we started cooking them. On Thursday we made the hummus- we added garlic, lemon and tahini and put it all in the food processor.  
 
On Friday we had a snack party with our Nevonim friends. They made pita bread and lemonade and we shared our hummus. We sat together in their "tent," like Sarah and Avraham's, as they welcomed us to their kitah/classroom.

Shabbat Shalom everyone. Have a wonderful weekend.

Ofra and Anna
