Why a countdown calendar of school days? Won’t an advent calendar do?
Advent Calendars that count down the twenty-five December days until Christmas are great for families to use in the home but not so suitable for school.
What about counting down the school days until Christmas? Twenty-five school days would mean starting at least five weeks before school finishes, which might be a bit soon.
The countdown calendars and activities in this resource are designed for the final three weeks (fifteen days) of term. They are presented in two formats — one for Christmas if your class celebrates Christmas, and one to include everyone in a countdown to the holidays.
Suggestions for use are included, as well as a sample letter to send home to parents and caregivers.
