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.

Hashvouaim - Adar 1-12 March 17 ~ Nachshonim

Shalom Families, 

Two weeks of PuRiM FuN!

Last week we made groggers: We painted and decorated them, and after the paint dried we filled them with beads and sealed them.
We sang Purim songs at circle time and with Melita
We told the Purim story with puppets at circle time
Shadow play: we traced our shadows outside, and noticed how our shadow follows us wherever we go
We worked with buttons- threading and sorting
Field trip! we crossed the bridge over strawberry creek. We played in the playground, observed the creek and tossed pebbles, twigs and leaves to the water. We want to thank our volunteers again! we really appreciate your time and your helping hands- you made this possible!
Ofra brought her fruit picker because we couldn't reach the strawberries growing on our strawberry tree. We picked a few and shared them. We also picked two avocados from the neighbor's tree and we are waiting for them to ripen.

This week, we did face painting
We played with animal masks and got really silly
We used the puppet theater with puppets and stuffies
We made Mishloach Manot and Hamantachen
We are enjoying some song books with CDs, that we have never heard before
We had a wonderful Purim parade at school- we walked inside the building, and on the streets, wearing our costumes, singing and shaking our groggers. Thanks to all the family members who could join us
Lastly, we have been reading stories about new babies and becoming big brothers, as we welcome Matan's and Noah's baby sisters to our Kehila (community). 
 
Shabbat shalom everyone, and HAPPY PURIM!!!
 
Ofra and Anna
