Each month of the school year, the first graders will use drawing, writing, simple craft projects, and photos to make connections with their grandparents and special friends. Here are some ideas that we may use this school year to make our connections.
SEPT. Classroom discussion about family – what are grandparents/special friends. What they mean to each child.
OCT. Introduction letter to grandparents/special friends
photo of child as a first grader. Request for a photo
From grandparent/special friend to be hung on our Intergenerational wall.
NOV. Seasonal Drawing – a favorite holiday recipe
DEC. Seasonal Picture
JAN. Child’s school interests / questionnaire for grandparents/special friends
FEB. Valentine card – bookmark
MAR. Grandparents are special – photo of child in school
APR. Spring Flower picture, learning about other places
MAY Poetry sharing – Grandparent/Special Friend Book
Grandparents are encouraged to visit the classroom or e-mail us. They can read,
help with snack, share their interests, do craft activities, etc.
