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.

HaShavu'im - Nachshonim

January27, 2017   22 tevet, 5777
 
Last week, 
The children helped make a documentation board with their photos to hang on the wall in the Kitah.
We made grape juice, using Ofra's juicer, and drank it at Ma'agal Shabbat
We played in the social hall on rainy days
We compared citrus fruits and wrote their names in English and Hebrew(Pomello, Grapefruit, Cara-Cara orange, Mandarin, Tangerine). 
The following day we tasted them all! Vitamin C boost for all the drippy noses :)
 
This week, 
We made new playdough after using the old batch for tree sculptures.
We had Pajama-Day, we made a "bed" with blankets and fabrics, and read night time stories like "Goodnight Moon" and "Bear Snores On".
 
As we continue to explore Tu- Be'Shvat:
We painted using redwood branches and pine needles as "paint brushes"
The carrot seeds in our root view have started to sprout
We enjoyed listening to Melita's new CD, especially the song "My roots go down"
We started (spontaneously) collecting seeds in a seed bag. So far we have an apple seed from one of the kids' lunch, and a snow pea seed donated by Colin.
 
Shabbat Shalom,
 
Anna, Ofra and Colin
