Perpetual Calendar

Pin It Now!
I wanted to make a fun perpetual calendar to use in my classroom.  I was going to make the whole thing - frame and all, but then I found this chalkboard one ready to go at my local Hobby Lobby.  I glued magnets to it and also to the back of my dates.  I didn't think ahead, however, and when I moved my dates for the next month, I found that my positive and negative sides of my magnets didn't match up.  This is why you see some of them are not straight.  I haven't taken the time yet to fix it.  The dates I made on my Cricut with mostly Plantin Schoolbook and Potpourri.  The month heading at the top, I got in a set from my local teacher store.

I have been trying to think up a way to use that same calendar from HL in my classroom also, and your idea is fantastic. I love the magnet students tend to fixate on velcro!
