This is a wonderful classroom sign but it could also be used to help remember the birthdays of family members as well. As my family continues to extend with the addition of wives and husbands, then grand kids I would be heartbroken if I ever forgot a birthday. I believe the little one will feel that much special to see their name posted in the home to help me remember their birthday.

As a former teacher, I spent a lot of money on decor for the classroom. Not a necessity but the environment of the room encourages a child to learn. This would have been a favorite of mine for sure.

This is so adorable! I am definitely send this to my cousin (who is a kindergarten teacher); this would be adorable in any classroom!
