My class is currently learning to tell their birthday. We’ve been practicing with the Jack Hartmann song “Birthdays” (from the Math All Around Me CD) where the children “stand up when I say the month your birthday comes”. They ask me to play that song every day.
Here’s a printable birthday book I made for the traditional birthday rhyme “Apples, Peaches, Pears, Plums”.
The rhyme goes:
“Apples, peaches, pears, plums.
Tell me when your birthday comes.”
I read this book to my class, and have the children stand for their birth month. Then, point to each child’s name on that page, and have them say the month and day. (About half the class is able to say month and day so far.)
Use this Birthday Book at Circle Time, and also add it to your Reading Center for children to look at during the day!
Make the Birthday Book
To make the book, print out the pages and write the children’s names on the page of their birth month.
To make it reusable, laminate first and write the names with a wet erase marker.
There are several ways to bind the book. You can laminate the pages and bind it with a plastic binding comb. You could slip the pages into page protectors and bind them together with metal binder rings. I like to use a “presentation book”. These are found in office supply stores, and they have clear page protectors which are pre-bound into a book. All I have to do is slip the pages in and it’s ready (and reusable).
