The teacher will cut the materials for student use prior to the lesson.

  1. Die-cut the 4IN Block Capital letters to create the month and year for the calendar title.
  2. Staple narrow paper strips onto the board to create the calendar grid.
  3. Die-cut 31 Frogs. Decorate each Frog with eyes (circle punches) and tongues. Label each Frog with Boss-O! numbers 1-31.
  4. Die-cut Frog Footprints and track them across the board.
  5. Die-cut the BIRTHDAY title and days of the week using appropriately sized Block letters. Alternatively, spell out title using adhesive letters or print it out using a computer and attach to the board.
  6. Die-cut any size Circle to create balloons and attach to the board.
  7. Die-cut Cupcake Flashcards for student celebrations.
  8. Have each student write their name and birth date on a Candle or Star Wand and attach one to each Cupcake, to be placed on the appropriate squares each month.
    Note: Each of the other shapes in the Laura Kelly Calendar Set will fit inside the same grid, making it easy to replace the Frogs with a different die-cut shape each month.(see Main Photo).
