This 2015-2016 Interactive Calendar Journal Set includes various activities to be used monthly throughout the year. In my classroom, I began the school year with the basic pages and added a new activity each month. The students used sturdy 3-ring prong folders or binders, and changed out the pages just before the beginning of each month. Some pages, however, are meant to stay in the journal year round, including the "How Many Days We Are In School" and "Birthday"/"Lost Teeth" pages.
Skills taught in this set thus far:
Days of the Week, Months of the Year, Year to Date, Entire Date
