The days that lead up to winter break can always be stressful as students look forward to getting out of school. I have used this activity in the past to increase attentiveness and homework completion. I have had great success using the activity and keeping the students engaged and involved. The file includes a calendar you can personalize, a header for a bulletin board, thirty activities to choose from and a printable to laminate and write the activities on each day. Create a bulletin board of blue paper and cotton for a snowy scene. Add the pieces for the countdown and you have an interactive bulletin board to last until Winter break.
