What in the world is a share day?
Today your child is bringing home a share calendar. In first grade, we have one share day per month. On this day, your child brings something from home to stand up in front of the class and tell about. It should be something meaningful to your child, like a souvenir from a trip, a picture of a pet, a family photo, sports trophy, etc. In the past, we have had videos of dance recitals and fishing trips. Just e-mail those to me the night before firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sharing is a way we meet speaking and listening standards of taking turns in conversation, asking and answering questions, and speaking in front of a group. In addition to helping us get to know one another better, it also gives us valuable academic experiences.
Please mark your child’s share day for August on your calendar at home and help them choose something that they will enjoy talking to the class about.
