I posted here about the "No Homework" passes I created to go with my student birthday gifts. I grabbed the free birthday balloons from Once Upon a First Grade Adventure in her post here and printed them on card stock. My silly printer doesn't have a manual feed, so I actually printed them on plain paper and glued them to card stock.
I hand wrote "Happy Birthday! Love, Mrs. Green" on the back of each and taped on a homework pass.
Then I attached the balloon to a fun shaped straw. The straws were a dollar store find with six in a package. I put them all in a mason jar with the label that came with the balloons. I always seem to have at least one student who likes to "take" things, so I'll find a nice high shelf on which to set the display. I'm not quite sure yet if I'm going to have a birthday wall display in my room. I'll see if I have enough wall space for that.
What do you do to celebrate student birthdays?
