Every time one of my students has a birthday, they get to sit on my special chair while we sing them a birthday song. Then the special birthday boy or girl can call on three people to ask questions about their birthday.
Last week, a sweet boy in my class celebrated his birthday. He called on one of the girls who asked, "What would you like for your birthday?"
I thought he would answer like most of my other students have: "A PSP." "A laptop." "A cell phone."
What did this boy say when asked what he wished for most?
A simple answer -
"A birthday cake."
