Is there anyway you can call her sometime today to make sure what you are supposed to be doing during the time?

I would say just a treat. Double check school rules. Some have rules that treats must be store bought, because they list ingredients.

We aren't allowed to bring in treats for birthdays at all anymore so I would definitely double check.

I'd say just bring in some cupcakes or a treat of some kind.

Just a treat. Maybe 10 o'clock is a period with a little down time before they go to specials or its a larger block of time for centers. Games and such take up way to much time.

As a teacher I typically was annoyed when parents tried to plan a whole birthday party in the classroom. There are probably 20 other kids in the class, not everyone can have a game and treat and the whole shabang. A treat is more than enough. Its really not fair to disrupt the whole day and get the kids all worked up.

I doubt she wanted you to do an activity, prolly just chose that time so it wouldn't interrupt curriculum.

I would check the school rules. With my daughter's school we can only bring certain items because of food allergies and we do it towards the end of the day and we just give out a snack, with no activity.
