Amazing Birthday Celebration for the School Year

Birthday ideas for school Teach Magically

Birthday are so special to students! So celebrate in a fun way that includes a few standards as well!

How to Start Birthday Celebrations

Students decorate a birthday crown. I have everyone do this at the beginning of the year. Then I put them in order by birthday so they are ready to go on the special day.

Math Birthday Celebration

Then we create a birthday graph that I display for easy reference throughout the year. If you teach primary, you know how many times you are asked when a student has a birthday (usually on someone else’s birthday) because the kiddos don’t remember; this graph helps!Teach Magically Blog Birthday Graph

On the Special Day

On the special day, the child wears the crown and reads the It’s Your Birthday book. We read it chorally as a class and/or partner read….then a black and white copy is taken home by the birthday child to keep. (I have all of the book copied and placed with the crowns.) Teach Magically Blog Birthday Ideas Crowns and Emergent Reader  I also give a Birthday Certificate. ⬅Click to claim free certificates.

Dancing Birthday Celebration

Before dancing review:

  • How old are you?
  • What’s your favorite reptile?
  • What’s your favorite food?
  • What’s your pet onion’s name? (This really makes them laugh!)

Then we do a fun echo poemReminder: Echo poems build short term memory and help ADHD issues! Check out Brain Research to Help Learning for more ideas!

This is such a special, fun time in the classroom.  It also provides a great opportunity to observe the students that can repeat, count, and focus!
