UPDATES FOR 2018: Extra clock practice slide (now there are two). I have also added several additional example pull tabs in addition to the instruction pull tabs so kids can get a visual idea of what to do when working independently.

***BONUS - you get two calendars to choose from to meet your teaching need - one has the number/day cards already on the calendar secured and locked and one calendar has the cards in a stack on the top left hand side where you can drag and drop them one by one! This means you can use this calendar pack year after year because you have the ability to change out cards each year to reflect correct days of the week.
***Always look in your "My Purchases" section for updated calendars - they are uploaded each year so you can re-download for the current month/school year.
***2018 SPECIAL NOTE FOR PREVIOUS PURCHASERS*** For those of you who have purchased in the past and click on the revised files each year in your purchased items, please note that Smart Notebook no longer supports Flash Player and as such I am updated all of my products this year to eliminate trash cans and other Flash features. If you have updated your Notebook software and still had Flash Player, then you know that your files crashed. As such, I have worked hard to create alternative options. I loved the trash cans too and hate to see them go, but it is necessary if we don't want our files to crash.
I will be updating all of the monthly calendars in a similar way. If your version doesn't crash and you can still use your trash cans, then lucky you! If so, I would suggest not uploading the revised version and instead just use the blank calendar on your old download to create your new calendar for this and subsequent years. Please email me at email@example.com if you have any questions.
