    Birthday Box- I teach 3rd
    By Joy

    Clip to ScrapBook
    I have a special birthday box that I use for my student's special day. Basically it is a shoe box that has been covered with wrapping paper and topped with a bow.I reuse it every time we have a birthday. As my students enter the classroom on a birthday, they see a huge birthday banner and they're encouraged to make a birthday card for the student we are honoring. I make sure that I have lots of construction paper, stickers and stencils ready for our card shop. As the children are making their cards, the birthday boy or girl tells us all about his/her birthday by writing a birthday report which is already typed out. All the child has to do is fill in the blanks. The report includes when they were born, where they were born, what their favorite birthday treat is, the best place to have a party and their wish for their current birthday. Once all the cards are finished and the report is complete, we gather on the rug. The birthday child reads their report and the other children present their cards. I place my goodies inside the birthday box. It's always fun!My third graders look forward to seeing the birthday box.
