We have been back to school for 2 weeks now, and I have actually already celebrated THREE birthdays in my room...WOW!! Here is the update to my cupcakes that I made earlier in the summer. The banner was from a discount store. I made them larger than the ones you can find at teacher stores because I wanted my students to be able to see them from across the room. I used the month abbreviations and ordered them according to our school year. I have a poster next to them with the full month names displayed in order of January-December. I like to refer to these for a different way to display the date.
