In the past, I've done a simple treat - such as the large pixie stix.
Or, I've made them birthday cups. I'm still considering these that I did to celebrate MY birthday last year since it was on the first day of school. They were so super cute!
We usually start the morning with our birthday cheer (which I LOVE as an alternative to the dreaded-drawn out-can they add any more verses to it-birthday song), let the birthday child wear a special sticker/hat/necklace, and give them their little treat....then we carry on with our day.
You can download the Birthday Cheer below - If it's a boy's birthday, I let the boys lead and girls repeat and if it's a girl's birthday, the girls lead and the boys repeat. They love it as a change-up!
So tell me, what is your FAVORITE birthday ritual in your classroom? Have a blog post about it? Leave the link below - I'd love to check it out!
