In our district, students can not bring in birthday treats anymore, so I tried to think of a way to celebrate each child's birthday and make them feel special. Voila! I give you... the Birthday Book!
On the day (or week) of each student's birthday, these pages get added to the writing center. For the days leading up to the special day, each student is responsible for writing one letter to the special student for his/her birthday! Then, on the actual birthday, I print a cover, staple the pages together and give it to the birthday boy or girl. We have been doing this in my class for a while now and they LOVE it!!
I included 2 different covers (one bw and one color). I also gave a variety of writing pages- different writing lines, different pictures, etc.
Have fun! Please don't forget to leave feedback!!
