Counting the DAYS!

During calendar time, we always add straws to our tens/ones pocket chart, write numbers on a white board for the number of yesterday today and tomorrow, and then we add a sticky note. The numbers are color coded. I keep them in my “scissor suitcase” this year. It has come in handy! J This has worked out great as a GIANT hundreds board eventually and I play “I spy a (purple) number” a lot. What do you do to count the days of school?


  1. This is a super cute idea! I have a growing number line going around the top of my classroom. This year I'm using stars, as that's my theme. I have 9 of one color and then a white one for the 10's...then 9 more in a different color. The last two years, I had cut outs for each month, but I wanted to do something different. I love your idea. I'll have to remember it for next year.

  2. We count on an abacus...everyday! I also have a flip thing. We add the base ten blocks into the mix after a bit. Zero the Hero brings them.
