I love these simple blank calendars for my students. Each month, my students fill out their own calendar with guidance and modeling from me. (For early learners, it's great practice in writing numbers from 1-31 in the correct sequence.) Each student keeps their calendar on their own clipboard inside their desk. It serves as a planner and helps us stay organized from day to day.
Each month, we record events and special days such as:
• children's birthdays
• staff / faculty birthdays
• due dates for special projects
• school closings
• special classes per student (for example: Speech or Gifted)
• special school events (for example: Walk-a-Thon or Winter Concert)
Filling it out with the children is also a great opportunity for me to squeeze in a little extra word-work as we stretch sounds and spell words together.
I've also included our monthly toppers in the download. These aren't the commercial headers I use in my large calendar, but I use these on the white board as a reminder to students about the order of the months and the number for each month as they write the date each day.
Thank you for your interest in this item.
Happy teaching! :)
