My calendar time is such an important part of my day. I use my calendar time to teach the calendar of course, but also to review math skills and to teach phonics and phonemic awareness through poetry and song. It is a fun part of the day that my students always enjoy! In this unit you will find color and black line calendars, songs, weather graphs, and different ways to track the number of days you have been in school. Each monthly calendar features a traceable and a blank copy. I usually start my kinders out with the traceable one and move to the blank one around the middle of the year.
The first section of this unit includes everything in color. I project these onto my mimio interactive board during calendar time. My students have the black and white copies in their calendar journals. Their calendar journals are simply three pronged folders. I put a copy of the months of the year and days of the week in the front of the folder. Then I have each month’s calendar copied on different colors. Do whatever works best for you and your students. Enjoy! :)
