Help me give my students a special birthday celebration! I want to make my students feel special on their birthday with a birthday crown, bookmark and new pencil.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My classroom will be filled with 32 energetic and inquisitive students. They love to learn new skills, share their ideas and try new activities.
Teaching this first/second grade combo class will be a new adventure for me.
After years in kindergarten I want to ensure my new students enter a more mature and "grown up" environment. We will work at tables, on the carpet and even outside. With such a large class, the best way to make connections and reach each student is to work in small groups. Our classroom consists of very diverse learners and small group time is one of the most effective and productive times in our day.
Although my students come from mixed backgrounds and abilities, they all are enthusiastic about learning and being successful in school. Our school is a place where parents, teachers, and administration strive to create an environment where each student can reach his or her potential.
Birthdays are a fun way to celebrate and connect with my students. It is a great day to honor the child and make him or her feel special and remembered.
Reading birthday books are a fun way to bring literacy alive in the classroom.
On their special day the birthday boy or girl will be able to use the classroom V.I.P. basket filled with special markers and colored pencils. In addition, they can choose a key chain toy to attach to their backpack. We will even celebrate those summer birthdays during the month of June before we leave for summer break.
