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

Shalom!

We had lots of fun the last two weeks!
 
Last week, the children noticed we don't have a lot of art on the walls, after everything was taken off for spring break painting. The kids made lots of art projects and hung some of them on the walls.  There's a fascinating art gallery in the pretend kitchen area.

We also did some gluing of sequins and paper shapes on cardboard, and experimented with watercolors and water color pencils.

We had a beautiful face/body paint session

The children put on another show for circle time

We read "The Invisible String" and talked about how we are all connected with strings of love

Outside, we continue planting- this time we planted sunflowers and green beans

We washed our chairs and scrubbed them

We had an obstacle course that ran from the sand pit to the trampoline and from there to a mattress. We also had a 'lazer maze' up on the deck, with rope criss-crossed all over the deck and the children maneuvering without touching it.

In the sensory table we had lots and lots of shredded paper from the office (reusing is the name of the game!)

During lunch we had a wonderful plan- we will take a helicopter and fly to Hawaii. Then, we will tie a zip-line to the pool and slide down right into the water. Who wants to come??

We also celebrated Matan's birthday. Happy birthday!

This week, we experimented with powder paint and water

We played with shaving cream and toy cars

We listened to stories by storyteller Michael Katz

We "fixed" the outside play structure

We played "baby Moses" in the sand pit and the water table

Colin brought two corn plants to plant, so we observed them and talked about them. We also compared a sunflower baby plant and a green bean baby plant during circle time.

A shaker broke and we collected and looked at the little beads inside it. We figured that the little beads are made of metal, as they stuck to our Magna Tiles.

We had some small group fun, which always helps to make sure every child feels seen and appreciated.

In the afternoon we did some fold over art with tempera paint

We decorated tote bags with acrylic paint

We celebrated Sarah's birthday!
 
Shabbat Shalom,
 
Anna, Colin and Angelina
