We make birthday crowns in class. The children wear their own special crowns on their birthdays. We give each birthday child compliments for the number of their years. 

I have a special place in my heart for summer birthdays since mine is in June. No worries. Everyone gets the same special treatments despite the time their birthday falls on the calendar. We do not celebrate 1/2 birthdays as it gets a bit tricky. Instead, we set aside the last 2 weeks of school for summer birthdays. Each summer birthday child is assigned a special day to shine.

It is not necessary to bring in birthday treats or party favors for the class. If you decide to do that, please keep it something small like a sticker, pencil, shell or other small non-food item. Thank you.
