During Advent, our class spends a lot of time learning that the true meaning of Christmas is the birth of Jesus. It is also good that the children learn more about the day that they were born. Our class has heard the story, On The Day I Was Born. The children have a project that will help them learn more about themselves. This project is for the whole family to be involved in. What a wonderful way to help your child know more about the day he/she was born.
Information and ideas may be obtained with the help of family, relatives and friends.
The storybook may be constructed in any form: example: text or scrapbook form.
Use photos to help tell the story of your child’s birth.
Book may be placed in a three ring binder or bound with any materials such as brads, staples or yarn.
Your child needs to complete all the writing of the answers to the questions.
Be creative and have fun!
