September Puzzle Piece Directions - My Name

Citizen of the Day

My Name – September Parent Letter

 

Dear Parents,

This week we are beginning our “Citizen of the Day” program. This program is designed to support the Social Studies curriculum and assist the children in exploring the general learning outcomes “I am Unique” and “I Belong”.

 

Each month a construction paper puzzle piece is sent home that you will help your child to complete. The focus on the puzzle piece will be different each month and will cover an aspect of “I am Unique”. The topic will be introduced in class and the students will bring home their puzzle piece in a plastic bag. The monthly letter will include the topic and questions that will help you to complete the activity with your child. The monthly letter will be sent by e-mail and posted on my teacher page on the school website. For those parents who are unable to send and receive e-mail, a printed copy will be placed in the bag with the puzzle piece.

 

Please discuss the following questions with your child and record your ideas, thoughts, and pictures on the puzzle piece.

 

My Name

Who named me?

Why am I named what I am?

Does my name have a special meaning?

Does everyone call me by the same name?

Other information about my name?

 

Let your child do as much of the printing work in completing the puzzle piece as they are able to further enhance their learning opportunities through this project.

 

Once the puzzle piece is completed, please place it back into the plastic bag and send it to school with your child. Your child will then have a turn to share their personal story using the puzzle piece. The puzzle piece will be placed on a large “I am Unique” poster at school. Each child will have their own poster to fill with 9 puzzle pieces through the year. Please make sure to complete and send the puzzle piece before the end of the month, as your child will receive another one for the following month.

 

Thank you for your support of this program.

 

Sincerely,

 

Mr. Miller
