Hey there! Happy Wednesday! I'm on my way to the dentist... so maybe not to happy for me... however, I do see a trip to the Dollar Spot in my future this morning! I went to Target on Monday and the Dollar Spot was completely empty except for some Spam stuff... Spam?! Who knew! But the workers were busily unpacking loads of boxes and getting ready to stock it up! So, I'm hopeful that it will be full of goodies today!
And I'm going clothes shopping!
And to get a coffee at Biggby!
So, before I go, I wanted to share with you what I made yesterday!
In my quest for the perfect birthday bulletin board kit, I realized that what I wanted only existed in my brain. Everything else was too big or just not right for 3rd grade. I wanted something more than a poster but less than a mondo massive bulletin board display.
So, I ended up making my own!
It has 2 different sets of month cupcakes- one set has month names in plain fonts and the other has month headers with little graphics that coordinate with whatever holiday/season is that month. There are candles you can write students' names on or type and two different bulletin board titles.
I'm psyched about getting these laminated and hung up!
You can win a set! If you will share the fun birthday things you do in your room on your students' birthdays, I will use the random number generator to choose 2 winners tomorrow morning and then everyone else can look through the comments to get some fun new ideas to add to their classroom traditions!
I'll go first.
I have this guy:
I used to have all of the words to "Happy Birthday" printed separately on cards and the b-day kid would arrange them in a pocket chart and we would sing their version to the right tune... it was fun! But last year, I just had kids stand on a chair and we would scream at the top of our lungs "HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!" and they really liked that!
I also give out a pencil and a b-day sticker badge with their name on it.
The last thing we do is create a birthday book for the kid. Each student writes a birthday message and colors a picture and then I bind them all into a book. My theme packs at TpT and TN all include a themed birthday book cover and themed book page. Or you can download a general one on my class website HERE.
