Making birthday cards for my students. 🙂
I started making cards last year when I arrived in Japan, and decided this year to continue the tradition with the new 2nd year students at my base school (that’s 195 birthday cards that I have to make in the next year…).
At the start of the new school term I had them fill out an index card with their name, nickname, birthday, club and favourite animal. This way I can learn a bit about them and try to remember their names at the same time. I don’t tell them about the birthday cards, so it is always a nice surprise when I do hand them out. I love being creative – and stickers! – so I really enjoy doing this. 🙂
