We all know that our early learners can only succeed if educational values are reinforced at home. This letter is a simple tool that gives parents the opportunity to get involved.
Your child is an important part of our school family. As part of our Friends and Familie theme, we are eager to become acquainted with one another’s home families. Attached you will find an empty photo album page. Your child’s assignment over the next few days is to help you sort through photos that represent important people in his or her life, and to assemble them on both sides of the photo page. Label the page with your child’s first name only, and feel free to write captions if you’d like.
Each child will have a chance to share his or her album page with the children in our school family before we collect the pages in an album. I know from experience that the album becomes a favorite free choice activity in our classroom! After our class has had a chance to enjoy, talk about, and pour over the album, each child will be allowed to bring it home so that our home families can learn about our school family.
If you have no pictures or are uncomfortable sending photos, please help your child either draw pictures that represent important people in his or her life or cut pictures from magazines that represent those people.
- I will do my best to return all photo pages after our project is complete, but I can not guarantee that everyone will be as careful with our album as you will be. I earnestly ask for your help in keeping the album intact when it comes to your house!
Have fun looking through pictures. Talk to your child about the special circumstances shown in the pictures. Marvel at how quickly your little one has grown!
