"Me" Box

This month’s project will help to build our classroom community and friendships. Please help your kindergartner decorate a shoe box to represent his/her personality/interests. Then place 3 items in the box that tell about your child. Help your child prepare to tell the class about his/her “Me Box”. This project is due August 23rd, but your child can bring it in as soon as he/she is finished so we can get started sharing boxes. Don’t forget to put your child’s name on the box.
