1-2-3 Come Make Birthday Notes With Me!
Since “Knowing how to write your name” was one of my report card standards, I was always trying to think of fun ways for my students to practice that skill.
Giving your students a birthday note that is signed by all of their classmates, is a great way to do that, and makes a sweet keepsake for the birthday child.
I have several black and white samples for you to choose from, as well as 8 birthday notes in color.
To expedite things for really little ones, you can have them all sign one black and white note and then run off multiple copies, so that when it is a child’s birthday you can personalize one and give it to them.
Put the note on a table where classmates can help color the card, when they have completed their other work.
Since I have 10 birthday notes, you may want to run off 5 copies of each one and keep them in a folder.
When it’s a child’s birthday they can look at your sample sheet of all of the cards and choose one.
After selection, set their birthday note on a “signing table.”
When students are done with their work, they can go over and sign their name to the card. Teachers should also sign their name for that finishing touch.
