Student Birthdays Idea!

Hi everyone! Gosh, I'm still out of the loop! I haven't had time for anything but I want to say I appreciate all of the nice comments and the awesome things you are putting on your blogs. I am seeing the wonderful stuff but haven't had time to visit and comment lately. I know things will settle down soon though! 

 I can't believe we start school (with students) this coming Thursday. Wow! Time flies by. I also have my first student birthday on the first day of school. I've been busy making sure I am ready. As part of what I do for school birthdays is that I allow other students to ask questions of the birthday boy or girl. I find in first grade it helps to have a bank of questions to draw from. I have done this for a couple of years and it is great and eliminates the "I forgots" after someone is picked to ask a question. I am including my printable in case it is helpful to someone else.

 I used flower punches to make a flower shape and also punched a slightly larger flower to use as a mat for each flower. I then hot glued them together and used hot glue to attach to colored drinking straws that I found at Big Lots. I poured pop corn kernels into the little wooden box I am using, in order to hold the straws upright. Probably a picture would make more sense . . .

and here are the questions I used . . .
