When you teach the months of the year, does the information stick? Have you checked recently? For global thinkers or struggling students, learning which month comes first, second, third, etc. can be rather difficult. Use this visual tool, The Clock Calendar, to change a linear concept into a big picture idea that students can remember.

The Clock Calendar helps students, young and old, anchor each month to the numbers on a clock. It provides an instant snapshot of how each season relates to the months of the year. This is especially helpful for students with dyslexia and other students whose strengths lie more in big picture rather than linear thinking.

Teachers, you don’t need to reserve this tool for your struggling learners, of course. Feel free to magnify the printable pages for your beginning of the year bulletin board or year-round classroom décor.

Parents, this makes a great craft activity that’s perfect for display. Show it off in a high traffic area of your home to reinforce the months of the year all day, every day.

The Clock Calendar Includes:

• Cover Page
• A sincere thank you from Inner Pieces Gallery
• Introduction
• 8.5” x 11” Color Poster
• 8.5” x 11” Black & White Poster
• Clock Calendar Base (Color) – Print this to use as the base page for the cut-outs.
• Clock Calendar Cut-Outs (Color) - Students cut and paste each month next to the appropriate number on the Clock Calendar Base, then add season icons in the appropriate quadrants.
• Clock Calendar Base (Black & White) - Print this to use as the base page for the cut-outs.
• Clock Calendar Cut-Outs (Black & White) - Students have an opportunity to color their creations first before they assemble their own Clock Calendar as described above.

Note: Each cut-outs page includes optional hands for the clock. You may attach the hands with a brad or sew them on with a knot using a needle and thread. If you don’t require the hands to move, students can paste them or draw their own clock hands directly onto the clock face.

Ideas for Use:

• Print the Color Poster and display it as it is.
• Print the Black & White poster. Have your child color the months and the seasons in one sitting or color a new name once every month. In the classroom, use it as a complete lesson or reserve it for early finishers.
• Print both the Clock Calendar Base page and The Clock Calendar Cut-Outs page. Have your child assemble The Clock Calendar, making this a hands-on craft activity. The Clock Calendar Base page includes backgrounds for the four seasons plus a clock face. If you wish to have your child cut those out and assemble them onto construction paper you can do that, too!
• Magnify The Clock Calendar before printing to create your own Clock Calendar bulletin board display.
• Use the individual components as templates to create a felt display that you can use year after year.
• Laminate the pages and attach Velcro to the back of each month. Use this as a teaching tool year after year.
• Insert your own creative ideas!
