There is always a ton of excitement when someone is celebrating a birthday at school. If you choose to, you can send in mini cupcakes or cookies, but please keep frosting to a thin layer. We do not celebrate the birthday until after lunch, so please send in an appropriate snack for mid-morning. This way, they won't fill up on sugar early in the morning.
The birthday child will wear a crown and is usually a class helper for the day if he/she chooses
In past years, we have had a birthday book program. The child who is celebrating the birthday brings a gift of a book to their class. At circle he/she unwraps the book and the teacher reads it. This teaches the child that there is joy in giving as well as receiving. The book is then placed in the class library and the child can enjoy it throughout the year.
