As a teacher, there are certain things that you know about your students. For example, you may know their birthdays, or maybe you have a system where students share their birthdays with one another. But what about when your students reach college age and no longer live in the same physical classroom? In this article, we will discuss some ideas for celebrating students’ college-aged birthdays in a way that is both fun and meaningful.
Announce the birthday to the class in a fun way
One fun way to announce a birthday in class is to have everyone guess how old the person is. You can also have certificates or cards printed out with the person’s age on them and give them out at the party. You can also have a birthday cake or cupcake bake sale and give out free treats to everyone who comes!
Have a party with food and games
One way to celebrate a classroom birthday is to have a party with food and games. This can be done in a variety of ways, so it’s perfect for any class. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
1. Have a buffet with different foods and drinks for the guests.
2. Have games like pin the tail on the donkey or party games like 20 questions.
3. Set up a photo booth with props and fun photos to take home.
4. Have a cake or cupcake table with different flavors and toppings to choose from.
5. Have balloon launchers and squirt guns available for guests to play with!
Give out candy or special treats
There are many ways to celebrate a classroom birthday. One option is to give out candy or special treats. Another option is to have a party where the students get to choose what they want to eat. Some teachers also make cake and ice cream for the class.
Send a birthday card
Send a birthday card to your classmate with a message of congratulations. You can also choose to include a photo or drawing of the class together.
Have a picnic in the courtyard
Invite a few classmates over for a delicious picnic in the courtyard! Start by gathering some food and drinks, then set up your blanket and chairs. If you have a birthday cake, cut it and serve it while the children are still having fun.
Have a special dance party
If you are celebrating in the classroom, there are lots of ways to have a special dance party. One way is to get all the students involved in a dance off. Have them line up and have someone call out a move for them to do. Once everyone has had a turn, have a big dance party! Another way to celebrate is to get together and make cupcakes or cake pops for each student. Have a party game where each student tries to guess who made their cake pop. Finally, if you don’t have any kids in your class that are celebrating, there are always themed birthday parties available at various stores.
Give out gift certificates for future visits
One way to celebrate a birthday in the classroom is to give out gift certificates for future visits. This is a great way to keep the class coming back, and it can also be a fun way to reward good behavior.
