Making Advent Calendars

How many days until Christmas? My students can all tell you!

Today we made Advent calendars that we could take home to count those oh so important days. First, we cut out and decorated the Christmas trees…


Then we made patterns out of twenty-four coloured paper strips. We wrote the numbers (grade one) or the ordinals (grade 2) on the strips and then made them into chains.


Here’s our finished product. We’re going to take off one link every night until Christmas.
