    One birthday idea I do is to have the class make a birthday booklet for whoever has the birthday. It is a preprinted page with a picture at the top of balloons and a birthday cake. Underneath I type the child's name veritcally. Every classmate writes an acrostic poem on their own page about the birthday child. I then give the birthday child a bound book with all the poems from his/her classmates. The birthday girl or boy is making the cover while the others are working on the acrostic poems. The cover is also preprinted and the birthday child just has to fill in the blanks and color it. They love it. I also give them a birthday certificate, lollipop, and no homework for the night. Summer birthday kids get to pick a "no homework day" during the year, but their birthday books are done in June before they leave for summer. Hope this helps.
