Keep Track of Birthdays in Class with a Digital Chart

student birthday chart

We all know that birthdays are a huge deal in our classrooms!

I have kept track of birthdays in a variety of ways, charts on the wall or in a Google word doc I would check each month so I could see who had a birthday coming up. Of course, in the busier months I would have a hard time remembering to check!

Instead, I created a digital file that has all the birthdays happening in each month and it has quickly become one of my students favorite things to check each month!

I display it on the TV on the first of the month. We read through to see who has a birthday coming up and what day of the week it will fall on. 

This helps us to incorporate the calendar and days of the week as well. Next, we talk about how old they will be turning. 

It has been wonderful to watch and see how they remember whose birthday is coming up each month.  

Then when one of their birthdays arrives, we check in on the display again and make a quick graph showing the new ages of the students in our class. It's always an exciting moment when you join the 6 year old club!

Finally, they also get to sit in the birthday chair!  I have 2 of these chair covers in my room and my students love how it makes their chair look like a throne!
