It’s official! The New Year has arrived. Across the country and around the world, January 1st signals the official end of the holiday season and a return to a noses to the grindstone time of year—in the workplace and in the classroom. The start of a new year, fresh with energy, is the perfect time to conduct a mini unit utilizing the new calendar.
Included in this resource packet from Rainbows to Snowflakes are the following—
1. A monthly calendar for 2014, with months placed 4-to-a-page. These can be enlarged to use for group lessons and are small enough to print for individual use.
2. Suggestions for use to address organizing, left-to-right tracking, identifying months of the year, sorting, counting, and a homework extension activity.
3. A bar graph to use with the birth months of your students.
4. A winter-themed poem that addresses the seasons of the year.
