In שׁוֹרָשִׁים (Shorashim– ‘roots’ for nursery) and שְׁתִּילִים (Shteelim– ‘saplings’ for kindergarten), we have opened up the second category of our theme, לְהִתְפַּלֵל (L’hitpalel).

Sometimes the answer to that question is a mark (mark making), or a word and sometimes the answer is actually a different question, what does my face or body do when I try this way לְהִתְפַּלֵל (L’hitpalel)?

I wonder what new feelings we might feel as we continue to explore during our theme!
