I love to celebrate birthdays at school and in our classroom we celebrate in a special way. I think it is fun for a child to treat his/her class to a whole class birthday gift - a new book. Your child may pick any book that he/she enjoys to share with the class. This whole class birthday gift will then be added to our class collection for the boys and girls to enjoy throughout the year. I think your child will feel very special sharing the gift of reading with his/her class.
If you have another idea, please don't hesitate to check with me. If your child's birthday is in the summer, we will celebrate their 1/2 birthday (Example: Birthday is July 8, Half birthday is January 8).
