I am excited to be able to share in the celebration of your child’s birthday in school. Please take the time to review our class birthday policies below.
Invitations: In order to avoid any hurt feelings, we keep birthday invitations out of the classroom. There will be an opportunity to participate in a class directory, which you may use to send invitations privately. I appreciate your cooperation in this matter.
Celebrating in class: Every student in our class will have their birthday celebrated during the school year. *Summer birthdays will be given an “unbirthday” date to celebrate in Spring.* On your child’s birthday the class will sing and the birthday boy or girl will receive a birthday sticker & pencil.In our class we will be celebrating with a Birthday Book!If you would like to participate, please send in a book with your child on his/her birthday. You may purchase a new book, or send in a favorite from home. Some parents wrap it up to make it more exciting, some don't - it's completely up to you!
The birthday student will present the book in front of the class and we will read it together. This is a wonderful way to promote reading as we celebrate our birthdays! If a child doesn't bring a birthday book from home, they are welcome to pick a favorite from our bookshelf. Your child will bring their birthday book back home.Birthdays are a very exciting part of your child’s life and so is the gift of reading.
P.S. School book orders are a great place to get wonderful books for just a few dollars!
