My class loves Angry Birds so I decided to make a countdown to the end of the year using the Angry Bird theme. I saw a balloon countdown on Pinterest and thought it was such a fun idea. I knew I wanted to do it for my class this year so I took the idea I saw on Pinterest and changed it to fit my wants. I didn't want to hang the balloons from the ceiling (against our fire code) so I decided to make a bulletin board. Here is my bulletin board.
My students saw me make the first few pigs and they were really excited about it. They didn't know what I was doing but they were excited for the Angry Bird theme. The next day when they came to class they saw the finished bulletin board. They were super excited. I explained how each day we are going to pop one and do the activity inside of it. That got the students even more excited. I think this will be something my students remember and also it makes each day a little more exciting.
Sorry, I had to take the Angry Bird Countdown down because of copyright issues.
