Spring Break Countdown!


Yesterday on Facebook a friend posted, "Is it too early to countdown to Spring Break?"  Her post made me laugh, and then it made me think...NO WAY!  It's never too early to start the countdown!  I've always loved countdowns: Advent calendar at Christmas, birthday countdowns, PREGNANCY countdowns (haha), etc.  I created a cute little Spring Break countdown for all my teacher friends!  

All you need to do is download the Freebie here, print, and put the page in an 8x10 frame!  I found some cute, cheap frames in the clearance section at Target.  I'm thinking about adding a bow or ribbon to the top of each frame, but we shall see...Now, use a dry erase marker to write on the glass.  Easy, breezy countdown!!
I know the kids will love changing the number of days during calendar time.  

While creating the Spring Break countdown, I made another poster.  I think this would look adorable in any classroom.  Plus, it's a great opportunity to teach children about positivity, optimism, and gratefulness.  I can just imagine all of the cute/funny/sweet things that the kids will come up with to write on the poster!  A great addition to calendar time or morning meeting...

Download these FREEBIES from my TpT store!  There are a few variations.  I also included a black/white version in case you want to print on Scrapbook paper and save your color ink! :)

Do you have a break for President's Day? We have a week off for President's Day and then a week off after Easter. I love having the break split up! Thanks for sharing! :)

These are so cute! Great way to promote positive thoughts in the classroom :) I could imagine making a scrapbook of how the kids are feeling each day when they come into school with dates etc. It would take a lot of paper, but it would be SO cute!

These are adorable. Can I ask you what font you use? I LOVE that font but can't seem to find the name of it

Liz Pledger said...

Hi Heather! Sorry it took me so long to get back to you! I used three different fonts: Cool Dots, Curly Cupcakes, and Janda Safe and Sound. :)
