This file contains photo examples of my Reggio Emilia inspired classroom calendar system. Also included are printable pages to create your own child-generated calendar/ class journal.
At the end of each day, my students choose and record 2-3 favorite moments on our daily calendar page. A student artist draws a picture to match the text, creating a personal, student-focused calendar and journal.
At the end of each month, I bind the daily journal pages together. These simple books have become a favorite in my classroom. The children love to look back at the drawings and reread each day's favorite activities.
This download is not specific to one school year- download once and print year after year!
This is my adaptation of an idea inspired by Sally at http://fairydustteaching.blogspot.de/2011/02/more-reggio-inspiration.html
