While not having to go to school was great for most kids at first, it wore off quite quickly as they missed seeing their friends and teachers and being able to play outside during recess. Many teachers miss the comfort of being able to teach in a classroom and not having to deal with all the shenanigans that online teaching brings them.
Miss Ingeborg Meinster-Van der Duin, a primary school teacher at the Dr. H.Bavinck school in Haarlem, Netherlands, was really upset by not being able to see her pupils every day, too. “It was all up and running that the school closed. It all hit me like this. The children were no longer in school. And I miss them so much,” she said.
The teacher made the dolls with such attention to detail, the kids were instantly able to tell who’s who when she showed them to the class. The only question the kids had was where was Miss Ingeborg herself? Therefore, she spent a couple more hours knitting and made a little doll for herself, too. “I keep this in. Next year I will also make dolls of the next class.
When the kids came to the school one by one to collect their belongings that they’d left behind prior to the coronavirus lockdown, she was able to see her beloved pupils again at least for a little while. She gave out the dolls to the children, who were really excited about seeing them in person. Each doll is about 10 centimeters tall and represents them with such great detail, there’s no doubt about who it is.
