For a number of years the preschool room where I taught used the idea of a birthday poster. This poster had all the children’s birthdays listed following their names. The poster was usually hung on the door- up too high for children to see and was impractical as many children could not read….
I was presented with the challenge of developing an item that would benefit the children, bring together all the children in a classroom community and still be personal in nature.
The product that did all those things is the “Birthday Book”. Children love to look at photos, therefore each child has their own photo in the book on their very own decorated page.
To involve the family a page for their traditions has been included.
These two pages together when added to the binder have provided countless hours of children looking at and sharing the birthday book.
This is the second year that this item has been part of my classroom and the children still LOVE IT!
At the end of the year the pages are sent home and parents have said it is worthy of being a keepsake!
This project is an art, writing, family involvement, similiarity and differences, comparing, community building activity that children/students will look at over and over.
The kit is shipped to your door so you do not have to shop for the materials- saving you time.
