Last week my friend Stephanie mentioned to me how much her son loves reading the notes she writes for him in his lunchbox each day. Stephanie really puts some thought into what she writes, and uses the notes as a way to sneak in some extra reading practice for her son. I expressed to her what a great idea that was, and she looked at me kind of funny and said: “You were the one who suggested it to me, Jenny.” –Oh. I have totally forgotten that conversation, but I’ll take credit for it anyway! 🙂
The truth be told, I have been rather sporadic in my lunchbox writing this Fall. When Bruce was in Kindergarten, I was much better. Here’s one of my favorite lunchbox notes from last year. I’m thinking that first grade is time to up my ante. Spelling words, vocabulary words, jokes in code… Please stay tuned for what I come up with.
