As a second grade team we would like to share our new tradition of birthday celebrations.
In lieu of sending in birthday edible treats, the teachers are going to read to the class a favorite book of the birthday child! This book can be:
1. A favorite book sent in from home
2. A book the child chooses out of the classroom library
3. Or a book that the student brings in and donates to the classroom library
When choosing a book, please consider the length of the book. Books that are 5-10 minutes long are just right for our birthday celebrations. Also, please note the teacher will be reading the story to the class.
We realize that this is a change, however, we are pleased to be able to continue this tradition. We believe that the student will feel excited and special, when the teacher honors him/her by reading the book he/she has chosen.
Thank you for your help and support,
