I always love to countdown the last few days of the school year, and the lower the number gets, the more excited I am about summer vacation! I wanted to make something that would incorporate that countdown into our daily routine. Since I already do a Number of the Day, I thought that it would be fun to use the activity as part of my morning work. I love my morning work, but feel like my students can finish it in half the time that it used to take them, so I do have a little extra wiggle room. I’m going to add these papers to my students’ morning work folders, and each day they will answer one of the questions. I designed the questions to use as a final end of the year countdown starting at 20 days left of school and work their way down to one.
There are two questions on a piece of paper, but you could easily cut them half to use as task cards. I’m sure they would make an incredibly fun station or center activity! They could also be placed on a document camera to help save paper and copies!
