Updated for 2014!
Give students something fun to look forward to every day in the month of July! This product would be great for schools with full year calendars, summer school classes, homeschoolers, or moms looking to keep their kids busy this summer!
Use this calendar to choose as many bizarre or unique holidays as you would like (there are 40 to choose from) and do a fun activity each day to celebrate! The activities can be as simple as having a chocolate treat on “Chocolate Day” or as involved as studying French culture on “Bastille Day.” You can use the day however you want to! Each holiday has its own card. Put the cards in envelopes or balloons and have a student pop the balloon or open the envelope to announce the next holiday. This packet also includes ideas for fun classroom activities to celebrate each of the holidays (140 ideas in all).
Also, check out my “Unique Holidays and Classroom Fun for July” Pinterest Board for videos, photos, crafting projects, etc. related to these holidays for tons more fun ideas to choose from!
Included in this packet:
40 bizarre and unique holiday cards (some days have more than one holiday to choose from!)
4 pages of classroom activity ideas for the holidays (140 different ideas!)
1 calendar with all the holidays on one page for planning
These are “legitimate” holidays in that they are celebrated by some people (I did not make them up!), so one classroom activity might be to locate the origin of some of these holidays!
I have a similar product for the month of June as well:
