I was just going through my pictures and ran across this one. I wanted to share this with you in August . . . whoops!
Anyway, every year I gather together Dollar Tree and Clearance Goodies to make good birthday gifts for my kiddos. I'm sure lots of teachers give goody bags at birthday time, but one thing I do to take the pressure off during the school year is pre-bag the bags. That way, at birthday time, all I have to do is grab a bag and put it on the desk. I also found a cute star centerpiece that I set out to make the day special. The kids love seeing the bouncy stars right when they walk in the room.
Sorry I waited to share this in the middle of the school year! I guess it's better than never, right?
What do you do to make birthdays special in your classroom? I'd love to hear about it!
