The Catholic Daily Learning Notebook and Calendar Packet is updated for the 2016 – 2017 school year. All dates/calendar pages run from August 2016 – July 2017. The packet also contains undated pages for every page that has dates on them.
This product is for use within a single classroom only. If you would like to use this in multiple classrooms, you will need to buy a download for each classroom.
Note for non-Catholic Christians: There are variations on a few of the pages that allows this to also be usable by non-Catholic Christians (although you may choose to omit the saint coloring pages).
THE CATHOLIC DAILY LEARNING NOTEBOOK AND CALENDAR PACKET INCLUDES:
“Today is…” page (14 total pages; 12 pages are month specific)
-Identify the day of the week
-Identify or write out the date (depending on which page option you use)
-Write how many days they have been in school – both writing it out as a number, such as 124, and then breaking it down into hundreds, tens, and ones
-Identify which season it currently is
-Pick the liturgical season and write out the feast day (unless you are using the page without those two items on it)
Note: If you think it will be too much to do these pages daily, you can choose to do them just a few times a week or even only once a week.
100 Days Chart (1 total page)
This page includes a chart with 100 squares. Your students can color in one square for each day of school. The bottom of this page features an appropriate verse of Scripture.
“This is How I Write My Name” Page (6 total pages)
With these pages, there is one line for each month. Pick one day per month to have your student write their name, and then marvel at the difference at the end of the school year!
Three pages are dated from August 2016 – July 2017. The other three pages are the same, but they simply have a spot to write the date in (which you or the students can do), in case the first set of dates don’t work for how you will be using the packet.
Every page features an appropriate verse from Scripture.
Monthly Calendar Pages (25 total pages)
There are monthly calendar pages for August 2016 – July 2017. These have the numbered dates on the calendars that students can trace.
There are also a set of undated calendar pages. The undated pages (where students can write in the numbers themselves) are just labeled as August – July. This allows these pages to be used in any year. There is also one additional undated calendar that just says “Month: ______________” at the top.
Weather Chart Page (12 total pages)
This page has the month’s name at the top, such as “My January Weather Chart” and then an appropriate verse from Scripture underneath (the same verse is on all of the pages).
Students can color in a box each day declaring the weather to be either: sunny, partly cloudy, cloudy, rainy, windy, or snowy. (Tell kids to pick the one that they think is the best fit for each day, since there is sometimes overlapping weather situations.)
At the end of the month, there is a question that asks students to choose the type of weather that happened the most that month.
“I can help Jesus” Page (2 total pages)
At the end of each month, children can be given this page to think of words or actions they used to help Jesus by helping other people. This might be something as simple as sharing the last cupcake with their sister or something bigger like shoveling snow for a neighbor. This is a great way to encourage kids to help others, as well as to reflect on things they have done.
There is one page that features an open space where kids could write words or draw a picture. On the second page option, there are just lines for writing.
Monthly Saint Coloring Page (12 total pages)
There is one coloring page for each month. On each of the coloring pages, there is a saint, their name, and the date of their feast day. For example, because St. Martha’s feast day is July 29th, she is the featured saint for July. (All drawings for this section were created by my husband.)
