Dear Families, 

    Birthdays are so special we would like to celebrate them at school. I invite your child to select five meaningful objects from home that will fit in the "Birthday Bag" which I will provide.  The “Birthday Bag” will be sent home prior to the birthday sharing.

    Your child will have the opportunity to talk about their objects with the class. This will help develop receptive and expressive language skills  in addition to promoting independence.

    Below are some examples of what your child may wish to bring in the bag along with some guidelines of what should not come to school in the bag.




    *stuffed animals

    *playbill/ticket stubs

    *sports memorabilia

    *collections (stamps, coins, shells)

    *trip souvenirs

    *letters, cards, journals






    I am looking forward to celebrating this special occasion with your child!
