  1. This month you will find a cut out in your child’s family folder (you will also find extra ones by the front entry way) Please take as many as you want.
  2. Every time you read a book to your child, write his/her name and the name of the book on the cut out and present it to your child’s teacher.
  3. At the end of the month the classroom that has the most cut outs in each age group will win 2 new books for their classroom library.
