Happy Birthday to you!
Our Second Grade Team has the following birthday celebration tradition:
In lieu of sending in birthday edible treats, the teachers will read to the class a favorite book of the birthday child!
This book can be one of the following:
- a favorite book sent in from home
- a book the child chooses out of the classroom library
- 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 believe this tradition helps each child 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!
