Calendar Time


*Calendar

Name Tags-Around The Calendar
Need: Name Tags

Post every child's name around the calendar. Use construction paper and coordinate the shape of the name tag with the Theme for that week..such as an apple tag during apple week, a leaf tag during the Autumn week, etc...

I use poster clay to hang them around the calendar, so they can easily be moved so the kids don't memorize the order in which they are hung, instead of learning to recognize the letters. When we have circle time in the morning we do the date...counting the days to the date we are at....then we do the weather, etc, etc....... After that I point to a child's name...when they recognize their name, they raise their hands...if they are too young to recognize it, the older ones help. It doesn't take long for even the youngest ones to start recognizing the letters in their own name. Contributed By: Kelly Schneider

Jan Brett's Birthday Calendars
4 seasonal calendars to print and record birthdays and special occasions on.

Calendar Friend

Enlist the help of a puppet to jazz up your calendar and weather time. You can use one puppet or have many different puppets. One puppet to ask about the year, and another puppet to ask the date, the month, and the day of the week. When the children become familiar with the routine, have different children volunteers role-play with the puppets during calendar and weather time.

*Days of the Week

Clap the Week

When you say the each days name break it into syllables.
Sun (hit your knees once with both hands) Day (clap your hands once).
Mon (hit your knees once with both hands) Day (clap your hands once).
Tues (hit your knees once with both hands) Day (clap your hands once)....
Sat(hit your knees once with both hands) Ur(hit your knees once with both hands) Day(hit your knees once with both hands). This is the fun day as you get to stay at home!

Snowdance
By Erin Lee & Marci

Snowdance is a "calendar" collection of twelve original songs (one for each month of the year).

Songs that tell a story for each month of the year from a child's point of view. Splash in springtime puddles, the first day of school, snowy days, cranky neighbors.
An honest and sometimes comical appraisal of the world through yourthful eyes.

 

*Learning the Months

Months of the year
Just speak the words

January, February, March, April, May,
These are the first 5 months we say


Summer is the hottest

September, October, November, December
These are the months we need to remember!!!
Contributed By: Melissa A New Month

When a new month starts make a change on the calendar so that the children do notice the changes. Place up new shapes or colors for the dates. Children do notice the changes. Place up new shapes or colors for the dates.

Copy the pages from the book "Chicken Soup With Rice" and each month place up a new rhyme for the children to learn. Each month's rhyme ends with the phase "Chicken Soup With Rice." Have children bring in cans of chicken soup with rice for a special lunch.
