Birthdays are very important in our classroom! Welike to celebrate them and we hopethat you will be able to join us in the celebration. Here in room 164, we celebrate your child's birthday by using a "birthday book." A family member or special visitor may join our class to read a book of your child's choice. This focuses the celebration around the child and his and her guest(s) while creating a very important literacy experience for the class.
After the book is read, all of the students from the class will sign the book and it will be held in our classroom library for students to read for the remainder of the year. At the end of the school year, each child will bring home his or her "birthday book" to keep. What a wonderful keepsake!
Some parents may want to create a craft or art project to do with the children in place of a book. The choice is up to the family. As always the greatest gift you can give your child is the gift of time. Share it with the class!
Please contact us at least a week before you'd like to come into school to celebrate so an appropriate time can be scheduled into our day! Due to allergies, please do not send in any snacks/goodies. We look forward to sharing your child's special day!
