Do you like to celebrate your students' birthdays?
I LOVE to and I've been doing it every year for the last 26.
Here's how we celebrated this year:
Every student receives a birthday wristband that you can purchase from Amazon or Scholastic. The kids LOVE these and can't wait to receive one.
They also receive one of the birthday cards (or certificates as a student called it today.
We sing the Happy Birthday song in English and French (and some years in Spanish, too!).
Everyone cheers the birthday child.
And finally they can choose whether or not they'd like the birthday bumps.
The children who have birthdays in the summer wait until the last week of school (which is this week for us :)).
I bring in a birthday cake, the summer kids get all the goodies named above, and then everyone in the class celebrates with birthday cake (minus the candles 'cause yuck! I don't want those germs all over the cake).
More Birthday Celebration Ideas:
As I was scrolling through Pinterest I came across these other fun ideas.
- Printable balloons with crazy straws by Once Upon a First Grade Adventures.
- Glo-Sticks with a tag from the teacher from Pink Buckaroo Designs.
- I think this birthday chair is SO cute and will probably make one up for next year. Folding chairs are pretty cheap (and easy to store) and of course, it's super easy to cover in stickers. This awesome idea is from Mrs. Richardson's Class.
- Birthday bags from Primarily Speaking. I've done something similar to this in the past, and we filled our bags with stickers, a birthday card, mini play dough and mini bubbles.
