Yesterday, I shared a big project that my preschooler made at school. Over the last few months, the kids have made individual craft projects to put together an amazing Shabbat Box for our family. The week or so before that, another part went home because it would not fit into the box.
FYI – Tzedakah means charity. In Judaism, it is considered a fundamental part of life. The boys know that we send in tzedakah each Friday or to Hebrew School because helping others is important.
I love that JSL has learned about Shabbat, about giving, and more. By allowing the kids to make items that they will use when celebrating Shabbat, it becomes more personal to them and they embrace this part of their identity.
So my question to you this week is inspired by all of JSL’s projects:
What is your favorite project that your child has made in school and why? As a teacher on hiatus, I am always curious about projects that other children have completed in certain levels of their schooling. Oh and if you do not have kids, what was your favorite project from when you were in school?
Thanks to Kailani at An Island Life for starting this fun for Friday. Please be sure to head over to her blog to say hello and sign the linky there if you are participating.
It’s been so long to remember (my boys are now 28 & 26) but usually their yearly science project.

Those turned out really cool! So far my favorite school project of Princess Nagger’s was when her first grade class was creating a 3D version of their houses so they could put together a ‘neighborhood’ display for curriculum night. We still have the replica of our house displayed in our house and Princess Nagger was admiring it again the other day. :)

It was the very first thing my son made in Kindergarten. A boy. Him. I still have it on my fridge. It’s with a magnet and everything :)

MY favorite project in school was in 8th grade when we had to do a family tree. Thanks to a great-aunt who kept meticulous records, I traced our family all the way back to Ireland in the 1700’s. That project really introduced me to the importance of knowing your roots. I still have that family tree I made.
