Originated by: Jane Racoosin, Beginnings Nursery School, New York, New York
Registration for our fall session is in the spring, and this information is given to the parents at that time:
We are very excited to introduce a project for you and your child to work on this summer. Enclosed in this envelope you will find a white hardcover book with a question on each page. Please help your child find photographs, answer the questions, and include any drawings or mementoes from the summer. These books will help us get to know your child and it will help provide us with curriculum ideas from the children for the beginning of the year. Please have your book ready by the beginning of September. The teachers will pick them up on your home visit.
You may decorate the cover as you wish.
