I really don't give them anything, which may not be right. Maybe I should give them a night free from homework or something else. I give them a standing cake on their desks... but I ran out of cakes before last year started and all they got from me was a drawing of a cake with their name in cursive on it in their agendas. I do make a big fuss of them in the cafeteria... when they bring in cupcakes (or even when they don't), we sing to the birthday kid in the cafeteria in front of ALL the fourth graders. Strangely, the other kids in the cafeteria like it when I make a fuss. By the end of the year last year, we had other classes copying us. :lol: Yet maybe you have an idea that will work... what do you do for birthdays... as well as summer birthdays?
