Bring a sense of calmness and tranquility into your classroom year after year with this perpetual calendar made from beautiful birch tree slices. The small birch tree slices have all been kiln dried to prevent future cracks and to ensure there are no insects present. They have been lightly sanded to eliminate any sharp edges, but left with their natural raw wooden texture in order to maintain all the benefits of their tactile surface. No sealant or varnish has been applied to the wooden discs, allowing their natural qualities to remain intact. Each of the 68 birch tree slices in this calendar set have have been carefully wood burned by hand.
You can choose to have magnets adhered to the back of your natural wood calendar. Does your classroom have a magnetic surface such as a white board, chalk board, or metal desk/door? Adding this tree slice calendar to your wall is a unique way to bring the outside in, and to create an inspiring space for your children to learn and grow. It is so important that children have a concrete way to visualize the passing of time. This tree cookie calendar is a beautiful way to teach the order of the numbers on a calendar, the seven days of the week, and the twelve months of the year.
For easy storage, this calendar set comes in a handmade drawstring bag made of high quality canvas.
