    Birthdays were always a big deal in my family and when I taught 4th grade at a private school (13 students) I kind of did make a big deal out of them. Each student brought in a special treat for the class on their day; summer birthdays each had a day at the end of the year. I also got each one of them a gift that was applicable to what they liked/wanted/needed. For instance I had one student who really liked dinosaurs so I bought him a 3-D dinosaur puzzle. I had another student who wanted to be a FBI agent so I bought him some "spy gear." Another student loved music, I gave her a cd. I gave the students the gifts after school let out and each one was thrilled with their gift. Obviously, a class any bigger than this would be completely impractical and get mighty expensive!
