Santa's Beard Countdown to Christmas Calendar. Perfect for kids to work on fine motor & cutting skills. Maybe a snowman to countdown to winter/Christmas break. Or a flower or spring item with wavy lines for Spring break countdown.
Here's an idea for creating a food chain on a ribbon. IArrows show flow of energy. Use with Apologia Zoology, Apologia Flying Creatures, Apologia Swimming Creatures, Apologia Land Animals for homeschool science
Math wall---"How Tall am I?" Flower Sprouts with the kids' names on the flowers. This would be great as a beginning and end of the year activity! I can just imagine how much the kids would giggle over their comparisons :-)
