Product Description
August Calendar - Grid book Activity #1

Making an August Calendar is a great introductory activity for any Math, Science or homeroom class, particularly if grid books will be used for assignments, homework or notetaking. It helps to build a commonality of purpose, as well as establish a pattern of listening for directions.

Creating monthly planning calendars (as opposed to simply filling one in) helps kids to build graphing skills as they graphically organize their time and periodically consider their upcoming school and educational events. It is also a painless way of reviewing geometry terms and helps to build numeracy as kids discover number patterns while working with straight edge drawing tools and graph paper.
Although created for use with gridded composition books (definitely preferred for math exercises & notes), this activity can also be done with spiral bound gridded notebooks and single sheet grid paper.


Required Tools: gridded composition books or graph paper, pencils, 6" or 1' rulers or straight edges.
Optional, --but highly recommended: Flair markers, Post-It stick-on tabs (different color for each month), small seasonal stickers. Personalization creates ownership of the work.
Terminology: Grid, intersection, horizontal, vertical, parallel, perpendicular, straight-edge, interval, regular and irregular intervals, right angle or 90˚ angle, multiples.
