This calendar set includes 13 calendars (1 for each month and also a blank one). It also includes a page of months and a page of dates/years. I recommend laminating the calendars and using velcro to make it as interactive as is appropriate for each student!
This calendar can be used daily to reinforce calendar skills, counting, and matching. I teach special education and currently use it during "Morning Meeting" - a time in my room where we do calendar, weather, daily schedule, who came to school, etc. Each student has a morning binder that includes their personal calendar like the ones in this set. As we talk about the calendar daily, each student uses their personal calendar to participate to the maximum extent they are able.
*Some students use the fully filled out calendar to match the months of the year, current date, and year pieces (after they have been laminated) to their pre-made calendar.
*Some students use the blank calendar and choose from an array of months, dates, and years and velcro the correct choices on their calendar daily.
*Some students use the blank calendar and write the month at the top in dry erase (if it's laminated) every day, the numbers leading up to and including the current date, and the year.
*Some students do a combination.
It is made to be able to adapt for each student and allow for continued growth and independence. The way the student interacts with the calendar will hopefully change throughout the year to show their growth!
