Birthdays are a pretty big event in your life in Grade 2 and 3 and I like to make it a special day at school for each child as well. They are given the choice of a few special privileges for the day like choosing their own spot at the table, picking a book to be read to the class, choosing the number of the day, or eating lunch with the teacher and 2 friends in the MPR.
For those whose birthday falls in July and August, we will be celebrating their “half– birthdays” in January and February. If their birthday or half-birthday falls on a weekend, they will choose to move it to the Friday or Monday. It is a day they wait for all year!
