In our classroom I want to always strive to honor, recognize, and celebrate each child. Although celebrating birthdays can be fun, there are also negatives. Because of this we will not have cake, cookies, etc. to celebrate birthdays. The reasons for this are numerous: health concerns (allergies, too much sugar), fairness (not all families can afford it), mess, and disruption to learning.
I have found other ways to make the day very special. These include singing happy birthday, giving the child a special pencil, and giving the birthday student the chance to share pictures and/or a favorite story with the class.
Please feel free to send in pictures of your child as a baby and/or toddler to share with the class on or around his or her birthday. The kids love seeing these! Also, I enjoy reading aloud (or they can read) a favorite story of theirs so feel free to send in a favorite book from home to share with the class.
