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

February 3     7 shvevat

Tu Be'Shvat is in the air ...

We made a tree from a cardboard tube and branches that the kids brought to school. We brought some tree critters and put them up on our tree
We added tomato seeds to our seed bag
We observed carrots from the farmer's market, that still have the green tops. We talked about root vegetables. Then we ate them for lunch.
We pulled out our box of nests and observed them at circle time. We got to hold the small hummingbird nest and feel the soft spot in the middle.
We watch our carrots grow in the root view. Right now, we see one squiggly root through the glass.

We also re-introduced the scissors, and enjoyed cutting paper as a morning activity

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone
Shabbat Shalom
