Kindergarten Monthly Calendar Notebook

 

I have a new adventure awaiting me – homeschooling Kindergarten again! I am helping a friend with her 2 children {Pre K and K} and couldn’t be more excited! You’ll be seeing a LOT more PreK and K on my blog and Instagram since she is allowing me to feature her kids and our activities! This new Kindergarten Monthly Calendar Notebook was created for my new students!

I wanted to condense everything I would have up on a wall for calendar time into a notebook so the kids could access it easily anywhere. They will be coming to my house a few days a week and staying at theirs the other days. This notebook will be easily passed back and forth so they can work on it daily!

My other thought with creating a monthly calendar notebook for daily practice was to help new homeschooling families who feel a bit lost! This notebook is a simple way to review many Kindergarten skills every day! Below you can see all of the skills that are included. It is geared for Kindergarten but will be appropriate for many preschoolers too! Some 1st graders will enjoy it also! It all depends on your child!

As I get going with my new students in September, you’ll see a lot more in action, but for now, I created a little video walkthrough to give you my thoughts on the different activities included and also the different levels.

 

 

I decided to create a lifetime membership option instead of individual calendars for sale each month since they will “expire” each month. With the membership you can visit anytime {you’ll be given a private link and password} to download new calendars. For now, I am guaranteeing a new monthly calendar through July 2021, but it is highly likely I will continue to create them indefinitely!

Use Anytime Themes

I also wanted to add some “use anytime” theme-based calendars {which will be for sale individually AND included in the membership}. These are editable PDF files so you can type the month/year in yourself! These were created for a few reasons – the main one was to have a replacement if you needed a theme substitute for a specific month. If your family doesn’t celebrate Halloween and you don’t like the October images, you can choose one of the “use anytime” themes to replace it!

Currently, we have three themes available – ocean, farm, and transportation. I am working on dinosaurs right now and have plans to add several more!

Big Red Barn Farm Kindergarten Literature Unit

We have another new Kindergarten Literature Unit Study Printable Pack which is expanded to include more activities than our units in the past! Explore farm life with this new set based on the book Big Red Barn by, Margaret Wise Brown.

Set the stage for your unit by gathering extra books and some toys! It helps to draw your child in and get her/him excited about your learning time together.

Don’t have a lot of toys and books to go along with this book? Ask friends, go to the library, or buy some things you think might be a good long term investment for your homeschool! Be sure to purchase the book Big Red Barn, or check it out from your library. In addition to the main book, I recommend adding in other fun FARM books to bring the theme alive!

Looking for more ideas for a FARM theme? Check out our farm theme idea page here, filled with more free farm printables!

 For this unit, I selected several Kindergarten Math and Literacy Goals to focus on.

Homeschool Kindergarten Literacy Goals Homeschool Kindergarten Math Goals

There are over 20 activities to keep your Kindergartener engaged for quite a while! Many tots, preschoolers, and even 1st graders will enjoy this set! The main focus is Kindergarten but that isn’t exclusive! Below you can see a collage of all the printables included! Click each image to enlarge!

 

Big Red Barn features a simple, rhythmic text about the cycle of a day on a farm, where a family of animals peacefully plays and sleeps.

The printables were created to go along with the story as you will see in the photos below! Connecting your activities to a book is such a great way to weave a literacy-rich learning environment into your homeschool in such a natural and fun way!

Have fun retelling the story and expanding comprehension with our comprehension questions, photo cards, and sequencing activities!

Explore beginning sounds, sight words, rhyming, and more with these fun activities!

 

Explore important Kindergarten math concepts with several different activities.

You’ll also find some science activities – labeling a goat and the life cycle of a chicken. Explore positional words with a mini-book, and have fun finding some differences! Also included – some tracing and coloring fun!

Unfamiliar with Nomenclature cards, also called 3-Part cards? 

Nomenclature cards are a Montessori based idea. The word Nomenclature comes from the Latin “nomenclatura” which means assigning of names to things. Nomenclature cards are also called “3 part cards” for obvious reasons!

Here’s a couple of articles sharing more about the what, why, and how!

Accordion Book Printables

Accordion Book Printables

When my kids were little they loved mini accoridion books.  Something about the design really drew their attention.  My daughter especially loved them, begging me to make them with her.  I never really put all of the accordion books I created all in one place until now!

On the new Accordion Book page you’ll find all of these and I hope to add more in the future!  Alphabet, Shapes & Numbers, Bugs, Farm and Ocean are there now!

Download all of these for free here!
