In Bjørn’s classroom all the kids were tasked to bring in a Memory Box. This could be a decorated shoe box, or a special box from home to hold treasures. Bjørn opted to decorate one, but was too amped up with his birthday planning last week to do the work himself, so he art-directed his mama, picking out all the bits and pieces to be included.
Over the next few months he’ll be bringing in small items that are special to him and represent people and events in his life. I think this is a wonderful way to show children where they come from, reflect on who they are, and how they have changed over time.
I’m wondering if he’ll bring in his tooth collection?
