Birthday Board for ClassroomSchool is in session, my Dollar Tree students! September is here and it’s the best time of year. I just beam with excitement when I walk into the store and see those back-to-school aisles. I love the smell of a fresh pack of paper, the sound of sharpening a new pencil, and the look of a new planner opened and ready to be filled. I also absolutely love to decorate my classroom. I was searching for dazzling decoration ideas and was over the moon when I came across this birthday board. I have been teaching for quite a while now, and as you can imagine, it’s awfully hard to remember all of my students’ birthdays. This board solves that problem in such a colorful and clever way. So, scoop up these items and let’s get to crafting!

Birthday Board Supplies:

  • Wooden Board (Not Sold at Dollar Tree) *I found a scrap piece of wood in the shed and slapped some stain on it to create a darker look.
  • Labels
  • String or Key Tags
  • Hammer or Screwdriver
  • Nails or Screws
  • Markers
  • A List of Your Students’ Birthdays!Birthday Board for Classroom

Let’s Get Craftin’ For Your Classroom:

  1. Start by writing the months on the labels. I chose to shorten each month and then cut the labels up.
  2. Next, write “Birthdays” or “Let’s Celebrate” on your board – whatever suits your fancy.Birthday Board for Classroom
  3. Underneath each label, place whatever you are using to hang the tags from. If you choose to take the wooden board route like I did, use nails or screws for a more secure hold.
  4. Finally, write the names of each student on a tag and hang it from the appropriate month.Birthday Board for Classroom

Ta-da! There you have it. A fun and clever birthday board that your classroom will love… and the perfect way for you to keep it all straight. Class is dismissed!
