Hey teaching friends! Hope you are enjoying this lovely Saturday. Bonus points if you are on summer break too!
Today I wanted to give a little tribute to Casey Kasem, as I fondly remember him “counting down the hits” with me every Saturday morning in my bedroom with my little tape recorder next to the radio. I loved Saturdays – oh yeah – still do – lol!
As I was thinking about counting down, I thought about how we all love fun countdowns. Might be the number of days until the next break. Perhaps the number of days until our birthday or other special occasion. Or even counting down the number of pounds to hit that goal weight.
Here is a cute way to display your countdown on your desk at home or in the classroom!
You will need the following supplies:
- A mini clipboard
- Number stickers
- Scrapbook paper or a banner already cut
- Small easel
- Twine or ribbon
- Optional: flourish stickers
It is pretty simple to put together – just place the number stickers on the banner, use twine to connect the pages, and hang from the clipboard. Place clipboard on the easel and flip to the next number daily!
