|Invitation that was sent home|
Our day was a mixture of birthday-related activities, some core curriculum, and some Specials (motor skills and music). During our phonics time, we tried to make words using the letters in "birthday".
Then we played a fun game of Tape the Candle on the Cake. Such an entertaining game to watch! Most of the students did awesome but I definitely had some go off course and needed to be redirected. One of my students literally walked around half the carpet blindfolded and without bumping into anything and never reached the board! He ended up taping his candle on my clip chart which is on the side of my filing cabinet. :)
|There he is! :)|
|The end result! There were three candles that didn't make it on the paper. :)|
I also had the kids write what they think I should get for my birthday. Got some very interesting responses...
|I took a day off once to do a veteran teacher observation for BTSA.|
And finally, the funniest!
A birthday celebration isn't complete without a birthday treat! I made chocolate-covered strawberries for the kiddos.
