עברית Ivrit Round-Up

Nitzanim has made incredible strides this year during זמן עברית(zeman Ivrit—Hebrew time) both in terms of skill growth and self direction. Over the last few weeks, it has become clear that children are so capable and so familiar with our routine. Today, I looked around the room and every child was engaged with עברית (Ivrit—Hebrew), working independently or in a small group, and treating materials with כבוד(kavod—respect).

So what does it look like for these almost second and third graders?
