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.

Ha'sha'vu'ah She'avar/Last week - Nachshonim

Shalom Nachshonim Families,

Last week was a bit shorter than usual, but we still packed in a lot of activity. Here are the highlights of our week.

-We pulled out some wooden trucks from the closet. 
-We saw a school bus on University Ave when we were out in the courtyard! It looked exactly like the ones on our shelf.
-We have some new books out about trucks and wheels. 
- The children continue to play with our toy cars and ramps. We have a rain gutter for a ramp and a huge cardboard tube for a ramp

-The children made some feather collages using liquid glue, feathers and paper. We have now hung them up on the wall in the dramatic play corner. 

-We made some ephemeral artwork using felt pieces and natural materials such as acorns, pinecones, sticks and leaves.

-For snack, we made fruit smoothies with apples, blueberries, bananas, and strawberries. We used our brand new blender! Todah to Noah and his horim/parents for sharing a blender with the school. We will think of you every smoothie we make!

-After a little bit of rain last week, we were inspired to get a Hebrew songbook about a girl and an umbrella.  She invites the children she sees to join her underneath umbrella where it’s dry. By the end of the song, there are five children under the umbrella. The songbook has a second song about children who decide to roll on the bed and, one by one, fall out. We have been enjoying these songs, and we sang it a lot today as well. Sometimes I sing the words in English, even if they don't rhyme. 

We are going to continue exploring wheels and transportation this week. More to come!
Shavuah Tov,
Ofra and Jennaba
