I thought I'd share what I do for each student's birthday. I made a couple of birthday buttons that they get to wear at school. They also get a birthday pencil and birthday bookmark. Then, the kids get to choose a birthday book for me to read to the class... they love this!
It's very simple and inexpensive, but it makes the kids feel special.
*Do your students obsess over your birthday? I never bring up my birthday, but the kids start asking about it and never forget it. This year we were on Spring Break on my birthday so I was showered with birthday wishes and creations the day we returned from break! They're so sweet!
