Tomorrow, we will be celebrating our first student birthday of the year. Thinking about it this morning, I realized that I didn’t have anything ready! I always give my students a little surprise on their birthdays, and we sing to the special birthday student.
In previous years, I gave them all one of those neat pencils with four different colours of lead (rainbow pencils, I think they are called?) and a certificate. However, I first got them from a little dollar store that is now out of business, and last year from Target. Neither store is available to me now (still brokenhearted about Target’s departure from Canada, *sniff*), so this year I had to think of something new. I meant to do it over the summer, but somehow forgot! One emergency trip to Dollarama later, and my birthday gifts are ready! :)
I bought these glow necklaces – two for a dollar is a pretty good deal! I have 16 students, so I bought eight packages.
You could also use pencils or crazy straws if you prefer!
I made a quick little tag to go on each glow stick. They can be found in the “Seasonal/Holidays” section of my FREE French Resource Library!
