I think it is really important to celebrate every child's birthday in first grade. On his/her big day, parents are more then welcomed to bring in a dessert/food for the children in the class. Please be sure to bring napkins (and utensils if necessary), and enough food for each person in the class. (Example: If there are 21 kids in the class, 21 cupcakes are needed). Examples of desserts are, cupcakes, cookies, brownies, etc. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at my email address (listed on the "About My Classroom"). If your child's birthday falls in a summer month, then it will be celebrated on their half birthday.
