They Say It's Your Birthday!

Well, it's my birthday too yeah!
No, not really!
Just singing along.


How fun is this video!
I know the students are going
to LOVE dancing to this song!
I am for sure adding this to our
must-do list for birthdays.

Since it is YouTube, please make sure
you mute the ad in case one happens to pop
up at the beginning.  It hasn't for me
(I watched it twice to check the content)
but I learned the hard way. I was
getting ready to show a video when
an ad came on that talked about...
nah....I just can't type it!


You will have to use your imagination!

On to the freebie!

Come over and follow me on Facebook
for flash freebies, giveaways and ideas!        Classroom Freebies Manic Monday

Thank you to Fern for featuring
and for hosting this linky every week
and also to Charity for Manic Monday!

I am offering the following
 3 pages as freebies.

The student puts the birthday song
in their poetry binder and the other
two pages are covers for a 
birthday book.  I print mine on 
different colored cardstock.  
Students write a friendly letter to the 
birthday child and then I bind 
or staple it together.

 I am excited about my updates!

new for morning work,
