Here’s an explanation of how birthday celebrations work in our Grade 4 classroom:
Birthdays are a SPECIAL occasion to celebrate SPECIAL people.
Here’s how we celebrated my brother’s birthday… many years ago.
To celebrate our scholars, we will take time at the end of the day, after the final recess (2:20-2:35), to share some kind words. You are welcome to bring a snack to share at this time, as well. Cookies, pre-cut cakes or squares, muffins, or cupcakes (a treat we can hand out easily, eat quickly, and clean up effortlessly) are perfect.
Please let me know one-week in advance if you are planning to send in a snack to share.
