Back to School Basics: Birthday Giveaway and Freebies

*
*
My computer has a cold and will not stay on for more than five minutes at a time.  I'm gonna keep this post short and sweet.  Please forgive me!!



Welcome back for Day 3 of Back to School Basics, a week long feature with giveaways, freebies, and linky parties!  Today I'm featuring products for birthdays!


Jack Hartmann's music makes me giggle! His CD, Every 1 Counts, has a song my primary students love.  You can preview Have a Hip-Hop Happy Birthday here.  

Birthday Giveaway...

In July 2011, I featured my file, Celebrating Yummy Birthdays.  On the first day of school, I gave each of my *then* second graders a birthday cupcake with their name and birth date.  After lunch we graphed our cupcakes and compared our data.  During the school year, we celebrate birthdays with a cupcake cone.  Link here for my picture tutorial.





Erica Bohrer likes to utilize Take-Home bags in her classroom to enhance the home-school communication.  One of her bags is a birthday take home bag.  This packet will help you make your students' birthdays as special as they are! 




Kim Adsit has a Birthdays Fun Music Book to accompany Jack Hartmann's song Birthdays. It is on his Math All Around cd. You can preview the song here.The song book is great to use as a center. Add a cd of the song to a pocket on the back of the book and children can sing the songs and follow the text in the little music book. 


Hadar Maor has a Birthday Cupcake Display too.  Hadar and I have similar products but featured very differently.  Rather than graphing the cupcakes as a display, she has cupcakes for each month and candles added to the cupcake for each birthday.  


You will have an opportunity to win each of the above copies! The requirement for entry is to follow all stores and can be done by clicking the product images above!  One winner will be randomly selected on Saturday August 4th.  You are only permitted to leave one comment. All other comments will be deleted.  Please include an email!!! 

And now the freebies...

Rachelle Smith of What the Teacher Wants featured a popular post almost 2 years ago. She featured the original birthday balloon on extra large pixie sticks.  You can read her post here.

To help celebrate the birthdays in your classroom, Jackie Cornett as offered freebie postcards! Everyone loves getting mail, right? Send your students one of these postcards on their birthday! 

Kindertrips features a cute Birthday Banner freebie in her store.  I want to create this with my cameo and hang on the classroom door.
TpT seller, Andrea W. has a CUTE Owl Birthday Topper for a pencil.  I cannot wait to print out a set of these!!!!

Need a gift idea that won't cost a thing?  Sandy Scott has free Homework Pass for the birthday girl or boy!

My sweet friend Dana from 3rd Grade Gridiron has a Birthday Bash Multiplication Game.  And keeping with the theme of birthday games, Kathy Law, The Queen of Board Games (love her), has a Birthday Synonym Game.

Peace, Love, and Kindergarten has a big birthday freebie.  This 51 page download was a gift to teachers who attended their presentation at SPLASH conferences.  They have generously shared this math and literacy file on TpT!!

Student birthdays are such a great opportunity for you to make your students feel extra special! This pack includes a few things that can help make their day great.  Wild About Teaching features free bookmarks, Birthday Certificates, and Birthday Books in this file!

Erica Bohrer has shared many cute ideas for birthdays.  I'm gonna share two pictures from her class website...

Preparing Birthday Surprises Early

Students hold calendar date cards and stand with others celebrating birthdays the same month for a picture.  Love this!!!

Do you have a birthday "FREEBIE" product or post you'd like to feature?  You are welcome to join my linky party here but it must be a direct link to a post on your blog or a FREEBIE product in your store!  Please follow the rules, I hate having to remove links!!
