Many preschools around the world encourage children to bring Mitzvah notes to class, detailing good deeds the child has done at home. They are read out loud by the teacher (“Morah,” “Giveret,” or “Rabbi”) to much fanfare, giving the child a feeling of pride for doing the good deed, and positively reinforcing the child to continue the good behavior.
However, not all parents properly understand the concept. Unfortunately, there are some children who may have a long road ahead of them as they grow out of their preschool years.
Jewbellish staff Perry Prokopenko, Mendy Pellin, Zvi Hershcovich, and Yaacov Dubrow asked around and pooled our collection of the 7 worst Mitzvah notes in history.

5. Best part about this Mitzvah note is that it’s written on a WeightWatchers stationary.
4. This is why autocorrect was created (Tzdaka is “charity”)
3. Apparently this was the only good deed the mother could think of.
2. It was “bring a child to work day”
