    dear jamie , here is some thought to a family project idea - one of this idea i have tried and it worked very well .
    idea 1 - try sending home 'HEALTHY FOOD PROJECT"where child is involved with taking a trip to a supermarket with parents in buying /eating and learning all about healthy foods and share a dialogue with parents about junk food.it can be a healthy vs "junk" food week or day and they bring various items of health food/as well as junk food items have a lesson on growth n food via actual objects/ a lil drawing ect.
    idea 2 - values lesson - find a needy child home /orphange /center in the area. organise from the there information about how many children have a birthday coming up in that month.select a date from that month and annouce in class about each child taking home a project of sharing any one obejct -toy/book/shoe/shirt -(imp note- object shud be one that your children are fond of not one that they dont want or use) also make them draw and write with help of parents a letter /card about their thoughts example how happy they r about knowing and sharing a birthday with those children .apart from sharing this is very effective n gentle positive way of showing children the hard face of tragic aspects of life. family is bound to have few happy chats at home on values involved in the project.i had lot of success from parents on this idea.
