Detective of the Week. -- This is kind of a mix between a "star" or "student" of the week and a birthday celebration. Students sign up for their week on or around their birthday. For those summer sweetpeas they sign up on the week of their half-birthday! Follow the link for the run down of what all it entails! :)
Birthday Lunch -- The birthday child may invite family members to eat with him or her. If possible, there is a special birthday lunch table. The special table could have a table cloth and a vase of flowers to make it a little more special. Another variation is to let the birthday child eat at the birthday table with friends of his or her choice, possibly from other classes.
Class Birthday Book II -- Each child in the class makes a page for the birthday child's Birthday Book. A page consists of a picture and a positive statement about the birthday child - something that is admired or appreciated. The birthday child makes the cover. The teacher makes a page too and all the pages are bound in a special book for the birthday child to take home.
Class Birthday Book I -- Instead of treats, the child brings a special book to add to the class library. The child or the teacher writes who gave the book and what birthday he or she is celebrating on the inside front cover. The child or teacher reads the book to the class (or a favorite part if it is a chapter book).
