Calendar skills are necessary for daily living and learning to use calendar helps us to organize our day more effectively. The concept of calendar is very abstract, and it is difficult for many of our children to understand. Prerequisites for teaching calendar skills are, recognize numbers, identifies sight words of the days and months of the year. Once the child masters prerequisites It’s a good sign and you are good to go ahead to teach the concept of calendar to our extraordinary brains. Children could struggle to understand and use the concept of today, tomorrow, yesterday in their communication effectively since this seems abstract link it to what your child does day in and day out. So it’s very important goal to work and help them to lead for functional independency.
On the other hand, Abbreviations are very important as well. Like many languages, Spanish has many forms of written communication. Spanish uses abbreviations and acronyms to shorten words. Actually, even with today’s instant messaging and texting, Spanish and American writers used to use far more shortened forms of writing than today. We need to remind our children to use periods after abbreviated words and after beginning and ending titles of proper nouns, such as “Mr.” and “Sr.
Use periods following the first letter of each key word in an abbreviated title or expression, and pronounce each of these letters when saying the abbreviation. Examples: U.S.A., a.m., p.m.
But, don’t use periods or pronounce the letters in an acronym. Acronyms are special abbreviated titles or expressions that are pronounced as words. Most all acronyms are capitalized and each area of study has abbreviations which stand for words.

Also, logo, brands or signs may be interesting to discuss in class. Many businesses have a lot to say, but they don’t take the time to consider whether the message they’re relaying is one their viewers need to hear. In a world of nonstop marketing ploys, what your student could need is some creativity about it.
Regarding Holidays we should say the holidays are a time for family to come together to celebrate tradition and to learn the reason for the season. While Christmas and Hanukkah tend to be to be the dominant winter holidays in American culture, December is a month with several other holidays, too. Teaching your children about how different cultures and religions celebrate these holidays can do wonders for their ability to respect other cultures and expand their worldview.
"Children need to understand that in our heart of hearts, we are all the same, we are one. We're simply born with different looks into families with different beliefs, and different traditions; yet we all have the same capacity to respect each other. So how do you go about exposing your children to other beliefs and holidays? "The best way for kids to understand and learn anything is for them to participate using a hands-on approach, engaging, interactive method, and/or learning the true meaning behind each holiday and doing a craft with your children to help explore the holiday even further.
