Next Countdown...Easter Break!
Some teachers count down the entire school year. In a way, we do that as well (when we use our 100s chart). But with Kinder kids, they can't quite grasp that long a wait. It seems like FOREVER to them. So I chop up the year into smaller increments - Labor Day (we start school in August), Halloween, Thanksgiving break, Christmas break, Valentine's Day, Spring Break, Easter break, End of School.
Hint: For every 10 days, rubber band the 10 straws together to give the class a visual reminder.
