FREEBIE: Birthday Book
These little birthday books are on half sheets of paper. Prior to the beginning of the school year, copy a class set of covers on colored cardstock. Copy class sets of pages 2 and/or 3, as needed for your grade level. Copy the pages so page 4 is on the back sides of the writing pages. Place a cover and pages set in a plastic baggy for all of your students so you will be prepared for birthdays throughout the entire year!
For example, in my kindergarten classroom, I copy a total of 26 covers, 10 sets with 26 pages of page 2, and 15 sets with 26 pages of page 3. (By the time we have created 10 birthday books, my kindergarten students are ready to write independently. ) Then I place 1 cover and 1 class set of birthday pages in a plastic bag. I put 26 bags together total.
When it is a student’s birthday, students write messages to the birthday kid! The birthday kid gets to decorate the front cover and add candles to the cake! I collect all of the sheets and staple cover and pages together.
Krazy for Kindyland crafts are designed with efficiency in mind, as I certainly understand the KrAzY schedule of a teacher! :) Craft pieces are also designed to use as much paper space as possible, as conservation is another constant thought on the busy teacher’s mind. Depending on the craft, you might choose to slightly enlarge the pieces based on the needs of your students/the time of the school year you complete your craft, and/or your preferences. Krazy for Kindyland crafts are compiled into value packs, so be sure to check those out before downloading individual products among the same theme.
Be sure to leave feedback, as you earn credits on Teachers Pay Teachers! This will allow for you to get even more goodies for your classroom full of cuties!
