Birthday are so special to students! So celebrate in a fun way!
How to Start Birthday Celebrations
Students decorate a birthday crown. I have everyone do this at the beginning of the year. Then I put them in order by birthday so they are ready to go on the special day.
Math Birthday Celebration
Then we create a birthday graph that I display for easy reference throughout the year. If you teach primary, you know how many times you are asked when a student has a birthday (usually on someone else’s birthday) because the kiddos don’t remember; this graph helps!
On the Special Day
On the special day, the child wears the crown and reads the It’s Your Birthday book. We read it chorally as a class and/or partner read….then a black and white copy is taken home by the birthday child to keep. (I have all of the book copied and placed with the crowns.) I also give a Birthday Certificate. ⬅Click to claim free certificates. Please leave feedback.

Dancing Birthday Celebration
Before dancing review:
- How old are you?
- What’s your favorite reptile?
- What’s your favorite food?
- What’s your pet onion’s name? (This really makes them laugh!)
