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

Hi Families!

The last two weeks were full of holiday themes:
Last Wednesday, our new teacher Krissy was with us, and we made round pancakes for snack time.
We talked about Yom Kippur, and how we should pay attention to the feelings of the people around us, and try not to hurt them. This was accompanied with books like "Understand and Care" and "The Way I Feel".
Sukkot preparation- The work bench and tools are out for play.We sing Sukkot songs like "Patish, Masmer" (hammer and nails). We also built with the big cardboard blocks and hammered "nails" to playdogh. We are following closely the building of our big communal Sukkah, and we went to visit the builders a few times to notice the progress. We also made a big communal painting to decorate the Sukkah. Right now it's decorating our room- come and see!
Sensory/ Manipulative activities: We played with shaving cream, and had our wooden zebras graze in a sticky foam field.
Another interesting thing- We started sharing the play yard with our Nevonim friends, what fun!
More books that we read: Sometimes It Looks Like Spilled Milk, Doda Tova (aunt Tova), Cat's Colors, Teddy Bear's Picnic, Sukkot books.

Have a wonderful Shabbat!
Go puddle jumping!
