Classroom Birthdays Sign

Classroom Birthdays Sign

This Classroom Birthdays Sign is a great weekend project for teachers that will make every child's birthday special. You will not forget any birthdays with this sign because it indicates which person has a birthday in which month. This bright decoration may take some time, but it will be well worth the effort when you hang it up in the classroom. You could also use this adorable sign as a learning tool for preschoolers to learn the months in the year. Nothing is more important to a child than his or her birthday, so keep this sign up as a fun reminder.
