I made a layout for Ask A Stupid Question Day... It wasn't at all what I thought it would be. I looked it up on the internet and I was suprised. This is the main focus of my layout....
Teachers came up with this day so students would know to ask questions... any questions.....
It's your opportunity to speak up, and to ask all those questions you were afraid to ask. All those questions that you thought were too stupid or dumb to ask, have been piling up all year long. Today is the day to unload them. C'mon give it a try. Nobody will laugh......we hope.

This may be a stupid question, but I will ask it anyway...... Teachers say there is no such thing as a stupid question. Or, that no question is too stupid to ask. If this is true, then why do your classmates laugh when you ask a question?  Yes, kids can be cruel. But, if you have a question, there's no better place to ask, than in the classroom.

The line-up for September includes:
Stop by and check out these holidays as I am sure you are going to want to remember these holidays and include them in your card making projects!!!!!
