Tonight we worked on a school project. Take a part of Ben Franklin’s life and write a paragraph and make a patter or collage. This was fun. The challenge is to try to let it be his. When i was in Science Fair back in the day, there was one family whose father was a teacher that always had the bwst Science Fair presentations. They looked professional. They looked like they were done by an adult.
While I never truly knew if they had too much help or if they did it all themselves, my friends and I always assumed they cheated. And they always won because their dad was the teacher.
I want my kids to win. But I also want them to lose. I want them to do for themselves and learn.
Besides, no matter how little I do on that physical poster, it has my signature on it.
