This year when my 7th grade students threw me a surprise birthday party of cookies and cream cupcakes (yum!), capri suns, and streamers...
[Can we just talk about how sweet they are?]
I got thinking... Maybe I need to do more for THEIR birthdays.
(Except full-blown-parties are out of the question
since middle school teachers teach about 90 kids
and the kids rotate through about 5 classrooms a day...)
It's something I just never considered... And something I previously thought of as being very elementary-school-ish. But I guess maybe it isn't.
So here I am....Looking for ideas for all ages.....
What do YOU do to celebrate birthdays in your classroom?
