In the morning when the students arrive they find birthday confetti at their spot. It's a fun way for them to start their day! At group time we sing Dr. Jean's birthday song and the children get a birthday crown, pencil, stickers and a certificate that smells like birthday cake.
I had a birthday bulletin board before, but it wasn't very exciting. As soon as I put this one up all of the students noticed! I like that some of the pieces focus on the current month instead of just a year long bulletin board.
Each month I change out the label and little flags to reflect the current month's birthdays. I put these on the big cupcake. Then on each child's birthday we move their flag to the top of the birthday cake. They get such a kick out of seeing their name at the top! :) And then to tie it all together I use the CTP Polka Dot Party Border.
