Back to School Tips and Freebie Day 2

I'm back with Day 2 of My Back to School Tips and Freebies.
back to school tips and freebies: calendar numbers not just for the calendar
Today Tips is all about Calendar Numbers.  I use them for many different things in the classroom.  When I first started teaching I bought all those cute thematic numbers that needed to be changed out each month- you know the ones that had school houses or apples for September, pumpkins for October and son on.  Those were great until one went missing.

A few years ago I started making my own calendar numbers.  Soon I was using them for other things around the classroom.  Calendar numbers soon became floor markers for students to stand on. I also place them in pocket charts for students to sort the numbers in order. Another teacher at my school used my numbers in a pocket chart to identify her students lunch card ID's.  She used another set for her students numbers on their book boxes.

TIP:  I use a Large craft circle punch that I found at Michael's- Don't forget the 40% off coupon and teacher discount--- to punch out the circles.
