There has been such joy this week in Beit Nitzanim as children take on new Hebrew challenges! What a sense of accomplishment when a child can choose her own way to explore and track her progress!

When she announced that she had mastered the song, I asked, “Well, would you like to make up your own full body motions?” And she was off!
