Birthday books are one of my favorite classroom traditions! It's a super EASY, FREE, and SPECIAL way to make every child feel loved on their b-day. About a week before a child's birthday, I send home a blank birthday book in the student's folder. Then, the parents and child create a simple "scrapbook" to share with their classmates on their birthday. I share my personal birthday book at the beginning of the year so that kiddos know what to expect. Use pictures, stickers, drawings, etc.
