Soon I’ll begin sending home a briefcase with our first kindergarten “homework.”
The briefcase holds three things: a blue puppy named Traveling Todd,
’s The Important Book,
and a blank book for you to write about your child.
Please follow the format of the Important Book to describe the important things about your child. If you wish, add a photograph to illustrate the facing page. Return it all to school as quickly as possible.
Click on the picture to read The Important Thing About Mr. Gurney.
As soon as you return it to school, I’ll read the page about your child to our class and send the whole kit and kaboodle along to the next student. If you’ve given permission to include your child’s name and photo on the online newsletter then you’ll see your child there, too, for convenient sharing with far-flung relatives and friends via the world wide web.
