Birthdays at School (Reposting)



Nearly half of my classroom children have/had birthdays this month! As a result several parents have asked for reminders about birthdays at school.

taken from a previous post:

Birthday celebrations are usually filled with traditions - a special dinner out, perhaps, or a particular chocolate cake. 

At school, many families like to send in a treat for their child's birthday to mark the occasion.

Food treats are lovely, and the children really appreciate them. Healthy 
suggestions include all-fruit ice popsicles or fruit kabobs.

Alternatively, some parents like to send in a more lasting treat. One of my 
favorite ways is the tradition of bringing a favorite book to donate to the 
classroom. If the birthday child inscribes the book (such as, "To my class on 
the occasion of my 7th birthday", for instance), that makes it even more 
special. I read the book to the class, and then it will be placed in a 
designated spot in our classroom library.

Of course, it is not necessary or required to do anything, but these are just a couple of suggestions.
