I am excited to say that I finished my Forever Calendar and have it posted to TpT. There is just so much to the calendar and I'm very proud of it.
The Forever Calendar is for EVERY month of the year! You might not have to ever buy another Morning Time, Circle Time, Carpet Time, Meeting Time, whatever you call your Calendar Time ever again.
This calendar includes so many Common Core essentials including:
Calendar Skills: placing the numbers in order, discovering patterns, reviewing days of the week, reviewing months of the year, yesterday-today-tomorrow, calendar questions for each day of the month.
It also includes videos/songs for eight different colors and four different shapes to get your students up and moving and having fun while they are learning.
The Spell-a-Word includes the first 25 words of Fry's List of basic sight words. From there, use your own spelling words, letter of the week, word of the day or just use the letters to make your own words. Practice the alphabet. Use this page as a language arts literacy center to keep your students interactive.
The Hundreds Chart page lets you count out how many days you've been at school using counters, money on the piggy, and with base ten blocks.
Best of all you can use this calendar year after year. It will never expire. The dates will never be wrong as you go into the next school year.
What do you think? I can't wait until March to use! I love that everything is in one place and that the file is still small enough that we're not going crazy wading through a ton of pages.
Talk to you soon! I think I actually might get to take a breather tonight! JoAn
