Student Birthdays

I'm student teaching in 5th grade and I'm just wondering what some of you do for birthdays for older students? Also, do you think it's OK if I do something for birthdays even though I'm a student teacher? I don't want to overstep my boundaries.
Thanks!

I do celebrate a little in 5th. If parents want to bring treats we'll do that. I also make them a birthday crown (something I did in Kindergarten but the older kids still love it.) You'd be surprised that most of them wear them all day around the school. I also give each kid a neat eraser, a mechanical pencil that I continually replace lead in throughout the year, and a free homework pass. I have a bear/snowman stuffed animal that plays the birthday song so we sing that. They also get a birthday chair cover for the day. Just because they are older doesn't mean they still don't enjoy things like that. I would just check with your supervising teacher about what to do.

Mine get a rubber Happy Birthday bracelet from Lakeshore, an Emoji birthday sticker to wear (also from Lakeshore), a birthday bookmark, and a birthday card.
