On the day that we celebrate a student's birthday, we make a special birthday book for the student to take home. While the students work on drawing/coloring the birthday page, the bithday student will color the cover of his/her birthday book. I have to give a shout out to my FaBuLouS cooperating teacher, Mrs. Taylor @ Elk Mound Elementary, for giving me this great idea!
|My little monster is turning 3 in September! I say "little monster" because that is going to be his birthday theme this year. Isn't he just the cutest thing you ever seen!?!|
I make sure to tell the students to try to keep it a secret from the birthday student what they are drawing for him/her Also...try to think of something unique and different from the other students. I am pretty sure that Kelsea does not want 20 lipsticks for her birthday.
For the cover that the birthday student is color I copy it on 11*17 sheet of paper. When everyone is finished with the birthday page I put them all into the birthday student's cover and staple it together like a book.
Most of the mom's say this is a keeper! I remind the students to do their best work and make it colorful!
You would think after having my blog for a year and almost 200 followers, I would know how to post printables on my blog. SORRY! You will have to go to my teacher website and find the printables. I will post them on the first page to make it easy! http://www.luv2teachk.shutterfly.com/
