Can I do a skit?

Child 1: Can I do a skit?
Morah Sara: We have עוד עשר דקות (od eser dakot—ten more minutes). Can you do it in עשר דקות (eser dakot—ten minutes)?
Child 1: Yes
Morah Sara: Okay go for it!
…and then she did. She gathered two friends and rehearsed a play, about text and with zero teacher intervention. It’s amazing what can happen when a child has the space, trust, and resources to be her full self and choose her means of expression. What an incredible display of child-directed work we witnessed in Nitzanim today! 

 

And even more powerful was the כבוד (kavod—respect) peers showed our three actors when it was showtime.
