Product Description
Best Birthday Books Ever!

Finally, an easy, no prep way to send your students home with something truly meaningful on their birthdays: An entire book of kind words {BUILD-UPS} from their friends in your class! Wow! Just imagine all the warm hearts and good feelings that can come from reading a book like this! Practice those literacy skills and create a birthday gift they’ll treasure for a lifetime!

Choose from several different options to create the best activity for your students. There’s something here for elementary students of all ages!

Inner page options include:

1. Build-up sentence: Write a compliment in a sentence and illustrate a gift for the Birthday Friend. Choose from several adorable graphics, each with two different line styles.

2. “I like you because…” sentences: Great for younger kids, these pages require less writing and have a space to illustrate a gift. There are four options to choose from.

3. Birthday acrostics: Wildly popular with upper elementary age kids, these pages have your students thinking of and writing a compliment or build-up for each letter in the Birthday Friend’s first name! Add an included birthday gift illustration page to the flip side if desired. Pages are included to accommodate names with anywhere from two to fifteen letters, each in two different line styles, with six options for the flip side.

4. Friendly letters: Choose from several different styles, with or without a place for a drawing. Some of the primary lined pages include “parts of a letter” prompts. Hooray for authentic writing with a purpose! And hooray for kind words!

Also included are sixteen choices for book cover pages. While the rest of the students complete an inside page, the Birthday Friend can color and decorate a cover page for his or her book.

When all papers are turned in, bind the book however you choose and present the Birthday Child with a gift to treasure!!

This packet contains the perfect solution to the question of what to do for students’ birthdays; easy for teachers, engaging for students, and truly a treasure for the friend whose special day you’re celebrating!
