Planet Happy Smiles Birthday Bundle
One of the ways we organize our pages for each child's birthday is by printing them all ahead of time and placing them in file folders in the order they will take place.  That way they are ready to just grab and go!  We also put together all of the children's treat bags before school starts.  This saves us from scrambling around on their birthday.

We have collected numerous books over the years about birthdays.  We allow the birthday child to choose the one we will read on their birthday and they also get to take three home for the night in the birthday bag.

Here is the birthday tri-fold I started to create a bulletin board on.
I chose the tri-fold because I thought it might save time putting it up and taking it down each year. We are very limited on our wall space, too.
(I am still playing with it so ... It is not glued down, yet!)

  1. Such a great Link-up! This product is incredible - You have put a lot of work into making special memories for all students. It is a "must have" for all elementary teachers. I'm going to spread the word!

  3. Wow! Great item!!! LOTS of hardwork went into creating it!

    1. Thanks! I can't wait to use all of my updated items! I am thinking about changing it to other themes.
      Thanks for stopping by!

  4. I need this!!!!!! :) Just put it on my wish list in case I don't win!!!!!!

    I have never been good about doing special stuff for the kids simply because it sneaks up on me. :( And I should know better! I am a summer birthday, so I never got the school recognition that I always wanted. Now, I'll have no excuse! AWESOME!!!

    1. I am a summer baby, too! I know what you mean. I guess that is another reason why it is so important to me. I am going to add a freebie to our store for summer birthdays when I get back! Good Luck!

  5. Just entered Karen!! Thanks for co-hosting this link-up!! I know they are a lot of hard work!

  6. This birthday pack looks fantastic! This would be so helpful. Great link-up!
