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 - Nevonim

May 12, 2017  16 iyar, 5777
 
Hello, all!
Last week we celebrated all things Israel, including 
  • enjoying some of our friends' pictures from their preschools
  • exploring the Israeli flag through all kinds of art media
  • taking a pretend flight
  • reading books and singing Israeli songs
  • making chummus
  • practicing the Alef-Bet
We also enjoyed our new marble run, did some torn paper collage, and had great fun with water on the warm days.

This week our focus shifts to the Omer, marking the days between Pesach and Shavuot. We explored wheat stalks and seeds today, looked at barley, corn, and millet, separated wheat from chaff. We even made pancakes!  We also made corn carrot muffins. We used an Omer counter that has a handle that turns. 

We had a very special visit from Engine Company #1, who taught us all about fire safety. We leaned about 911, smoke detectors, stop/drop/roll, and all the special compartments on the truck! There is even a surfboard!

This week we visited the park for some swinging, climbing, and ball playing. We also had a "bonfire" for Lag Ba'Omer (observed Sunday). Krissy brought her faux fire, we picnicked outdoors, and Leo played his violin!

Shabbat Shalom Umevorach, and see you Monday for conferences!

Judy, Ruth, and Krissy
