    Story Telling Dolls for Schools

    Batia's work with schools is a true success story. Working with students and teachers in the classroom for over 10 years, Batia helps bring to life topics from the curriculum, by putting together gorgeous exhibit displays made by the children in the class, with Batia's guidance. These exhibits are not only impressive and a true learning experience, they also are a source of pride to each and every one of the students, teachers, parents, and schools that participated in their making.

    Themes

    Doll projects can revolve around any theme. Any Jewish holiday is of course a joy to work on for the children and teachers. Some examples of subjects for a workshop include:

    • Bilblical stories or events: Matan Torah, Ruth & Naomi, Joseph in Egypt...
    • Woman of the bible ( designed for Bat Mitzvah celebrations )
    • Anna Frank
    • First waves of immigration to Israel
    • Jewish Holidays: Purim, Passover...
    • Any other subject which is covered in class.
