I don't know about your kiddos, but mine LOVE to count down to special things. These Calendar Countdown cards are awesome to use during Calendar time and it really helps their Math and Time skills. Plus, they don't have to ask me every day how much longer until.... . My kiddos will love them, and I bet yours will too!
All the holidays and special events I could think of are included in the packet! There's at least one a month, so they will always have something to look forward to and count down. 32 Special Days in all!
Special Days Include:
Martin Luther King
St. Patrick's Day
Just print and laminate. Stick a set of numbers (I use
calendar numbers) on a ring, and you've got an
easy way to count down to all the fun, special days in your classroom.
