Can you repeat that, please?

Last week, the day before break, I had the privilege of moderating a Zoom fashion show for a 6th grade class.  As part of their curriculum, the kids had learned about elements of fashion design.  They even had a guest speaker Zoom in, who happened to be an alumnus of the school!

Then the kids spent time designing a t-shirt using all they had learned - colors, shapes, textures, you name it.  The last step before the fashion show itself was writing a detailed description of their design.  They needed to include the vocabulary they had learned specific for the unit, as well as explain the why behind their design choices.  

And they had to do it all in Hebrew.  

Every word of it.

As I moderated, I was blown away.  I mean, these kids are in 6th grade, and listening to them?  You'd have thought they were native Hebrew speakers! 

As they say in Hebrew for a job well done - Kol Hakavod!
