Anyway, once our students get to the high school classroom, birthdays become less important in the course of the day. Sure, they may have parties with friends, get a new car from their parents, or finally buy that lotto ticket they always wanted, but we rarely celebrate high school birthdays in the classroom. In honor of our teenage students, I thought I would put together a little birthday gift to make their day a little more special.
The one thing that I still need help with is whether or not to give them out directly on each student's birthday or hand them out on the first of the month for all students with birthdays in that month. My biggest concern is for those students with birthdays at the end of May when the only thing left is exams...thoughts? I'd love to hear how you would use this certificate.
Oh, and as an added bonus...the little Happy Birthday poem can be sung to the tune of Happy Birthday...and now it will be stuck in your head ALL. DAY. You're welcome.
