I love playing with dates to get kiddos thinking about numbers! For instance, "Take a close look at 9-10-11. What do you notice?" How about this little puzzler: "Add two lines to this date to make a true number model: 5-9-14 ".
Saturday is 12/12, so how about some time this week talking about the idea of "dozen"? Here's an add-and-sort activity to follow up your discussion! Enjoy!
