Share the joy of your announcement with your students! This resources includes everything you need to host a mini gender reveal in your classroom with your loving students. You can read about how I used these resources to throw a gender reveal for my teacher bestie on my blog: HERE
Table of Contents
• Pages 5-6: “Bee” Posters/Signs
These signs can be used on the door, board, or however best works for you! You could also copy it on the back of a parent note if you are asking for party supplies to be sent in.
• Page 7: Keepsake Notebook Cover
I stored all of the activities from the day in a composition notebook so there would be a keepsake. I even took down the voting bees and beehives and stuck those in the notebook as well.
• Pages 8-12: Advice for the Mother to “Bee” Cover and Pages
These half sheets have multiple versions (both girl/boy and writing lines/no lines options). Students write their advice for the mom to “bee” based on what they think good moms should do (or what their mom does). You can bind these half pages into a book or glue them onto pages of your keepsake notebook.
• Pages 13-15: “My teacher will “bee” a great mom because…” notebook pocket and student recording slips
The students write one reason they think their teacher will be a great mom. The recording slips can be stored in the pocket that can be glued inside the notebook. You can print as many pockets as needed to fit all of the slips.
• Pages 16: Student graphing sheet
After voting, students create a bar graph based on the data, add titles, create the y-axis, and write a sentence about the data. This can be completed as a class, partners, or individually.
• Pages 17-22: (black and white) girl/boy beehives and bee clipart options for student voting
I printed the beehives on yellow cardstock and taped them up in my classroom. I copied the bees either on pink paper or blue paper. Students got the color bee that they predicted and wrote both their name and a suggested baby name. Then, students taped their bee next to the girl or boy beehive. This display is what the students used to create their graphs.
