Are you interested in an Activboard Calendar that you can tailor to fit your style, your classroom and school events? Then this is the calendar for you.
This set includes twelve calendars with the option to "dress it up" or "dress it down". Clipart is included for each month, but you can easily drag in your own clipart if you choose. There are "drag a copy" options such as a cake for birthdays, a boy reading for book order deadlines, "Special Event", "Holiday" and "No School". The best part is that because you can tailor this to fit your needs when the next school year arrives you simply change the year at the top of the calendar and you are ready to go - this makes this calendar never ending (no more waiting for updates from year to year).
With a handy toolbox in the lower right hand corner there is the option to either drag the numbers to the proper spots or the children can use the pen tool and write the proper number.
Added bonuses include the option to practice days of the weeks with write the day, then choose the proper day for "Yesterday was...", "Today is ...", "Tomorrow will be...". In addition there is a link to the song, "Seven Days of the Week".
There is a flipchart to track how many days there are in the month and then write that in tallies. NEW for 2013/14: I have added a Count the Days (similar to the placed value pocket chart activities) and then a track the weather graph.
Due to the flexibility of the Activboard software you create this with the Activboard and then print it for your class calendar, capture it for a class webpage or simply use it to organize your instruction.
A three page student printable is included so student can following along at their desks.
Common Core Connection: This aligns with the following Math CCSS:

SPECIAL NOTE: This is a customizable document so you the fonts I used to create it (Chinacat and Elephants in Cherry Trees) are included in the zip file. To use and view as intended you should install these fonts (drag to your desktop and double click on them, then restart to activate) before you open the flip chart file.
PREVIEW NOTE: The PREVIEW is a sample -- you can use it with your ActivInspire software but you will not be able to SAVE, EDIT, COPY or PRINT. Please purchase the product for full functionality. - Thanks!
