    How do you celebrate a student's birthday?

    In my class, we sing Happy Birthday, give them a card, and let them pick something from the treasure basket. If the parents choose, they bring treats and we eat that for snack. Nothing really fantastic or disruptive to our day.

    I have an awesome volunteer. She comes in once a month and has made a poster for each child. This poster has their favorite things on it (team, tv show, color, etc.) and their picture. She also has the kids for that month vote on 1 type of food and she brings it (usually pizza). The kids get to share their poster and we get to chow down. She also brings cupcakes for the b-day boys/gals.

    Our school does a schoolwide tv announcement and gives each child a spirit cup on their birthday. If parents want to bring a treat, they have to do it during the child's regular lunch time.

    Birthday pencil and card, song. If the student brings treats we have them after AR.

    I have a Jehovah's Witness student in my class that brings in treats on the first friday of each month to make up for the celebrations she doesn't do (her words-not mine). We just pass out those treats and say thank you.
