I think it is really important to celebrate every child’s birthday. On his/her big day, I give them a crown, a card, and pencil. This year we do have peanut/nut allergies in our class. With an increasing number of allergies, we will NOT be celebrating birthdays in our class with food. In lieu of food treats, you could send in something special for your child’s birthday. It could be a small arts and crafts activity for the class to do (Oriental Trading is a great place to look). You could send in a special book your child would like me to read in class.
Be creative! As your child’s birthday gets closer, please let me know in advance what you’re planning to send in. I ask that you send in your something “special” that morning and we will celebrate during our free time that day.
Thank you so much for your help. I really appreciate it. Please call me if you have any questions or concerns.
