September 7 - Grandparents Day


Grandparents Day is so much fun (especially for us grandparents).  Many classrooms across the nation invite grandparents to join the fun and do some sharing with the students.

Students often make cards, put on plays, and interview willing grandparent about the "old days".  It's a lovely exchange among generations.

Last year I created a fun craft and Grandparents Day card filled with literacy activities.  Much to my surprise, I received one of the cards from my own granddaughter!
