Advent Calendars

We are all teaching quite a lot of phonics with our projects at the moment and I had a thought about linking advent calendars with phonics.  However, I soon let go of the link as I looked around at calendars that could be made in the classroom.  Here are my favourites that I think would be suitable for children to have a go at.

I think this is possibly  my favourite just because it is so easy to make.  Inside the envelopes I was thinking of a little message giving the class a different task to undertake each day – or you could put chocolate! If it was a phonics calendar, you could put the sound/phoneme or high frequency word of the day!







Boxes of all sort feature heavily in handmade advent calendars.  I like the arrangement of these boxes.
