I have taught for nine years in Kindergarten and I have revamped my calendar routines at least nine times - always trying to find how to maximize learning in a short window of time without subsequently losing my mind... Alas, I think I have finally come upon my answer. I give you "My Calendar Book"... This product can be used in a variety of ways - either as a book that the students use throughout the year, or as a monthly or seasonal book you assemble, or just as individual pages for students to use by hand or by having it projected onto a screen or whiteboard. Very versatile! I attempted to make the product as open ended as possible so that it can be adapted to individual classrooms and students' progressive independence. The book addresses days of the week, months of the year, number sense, numbers to 100 and beyond, tally marks, graphing, writing, seasons, weather, how weather effects people, temperature, birthdays, lost teeth, friends, trees, etc. You can even throw shapes into the mix by how you instruct on the calendar page (marking days with shapes vs. numbers). In my own classroom, I assemble the books at the beginning of the school year, placing each calendar book page in a sheet protector inside of a two pocket folder, so that the students can use the books throughout the year and I minimize the amount of papers floating around and copies I have to make. We use Expo Markers (or Vis a Vis would work) on the sheet protectors. The books can be copied in color or in black and white. Enjoy! For more calendar ideas, visit my TPT page!
