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!

Teaching Kindergarten at Home

Many of you know I am a former Kindergarten teacher and that my passion is early childhood education. After becoming a homeschooler {reluctantly}, my passion grew to find a way to empower families to feel confident homeschooling the early years. I speak at homeschool conventions and meet hundreds of families each year, and every family I meet ignites that passion! Many people are nervous about educating their younger child at home, the same way I was nervous about teaching middle school and high school at home {which I have now done and it wasn’t as scary as I thought it would be}. Over the years, I have developed many resources for homeschooling families and I have something new for you today that I hope will really help those of you wanting to homeschool Kindergarten.

Before I move on, please remember, that although the official word is Kindergarten, your homeschooled child is not locked into a specific “grade,” especially in the early years. It is all about following the lead of the child and finding your child’s sweet spot.

Are you a bit overwhelmed?

One of the things a homeschool educator feels often is OVERWHELMED. Even I did when I taught Kindergarten at home for the first time, and I was a K teacher – I knew what I was doing. But it is different and overwhelming when it’s all on you and it’s YOUR child. My goal is to make things less overwhelming, and one of the ways to do that is to save you time. I have gathered all of our Kindergarten products into a simple membership area called K @ Home, where you can easily access exactly what you need, all on one webpage! No ads, no browsing around, just log in and download what you want!

I created 3 different levels of membership so you can cater your investment to your personal needs. Below I will describe the three different levels so you can make the best choice for your family!

K @ Home Level 1

Level 1 is a simple way to get your hands on ALL of our Kindergarten Literature Units, which are the base of our homeschool Kindergarten. Currently, we have 10 premium units that sell for $3.00 individually. We also have 10 free units. I have plans to add at least 2 more premium units, possibly more. In this section, you will find simple, direct links to all of these units as well as links to the blog posts sharing more about each unit to give you ideas! It really is a time-saver and will make things easier for you! Below you can see a screenshot of the private page so you can see how it is laid out. The screenshot does not show the entire webpage, just the top portion so you can see how it is organized.

K @ Home Level 2

Level 2 includes all of the K Literature Units and all of our alphabet products, as well as our Let’s Explore Colors, and Let’s Explore Shapes! If I create any new ABC, colors, or shapes products they will be added to this section! Below you can see a screenshot of the private page so you can see what you will have access to. The screenshot does not show the entire webpage, just the top portion so you can see how it is laid out. You can see the menu which makes it simple to jump to a specific section of the private webpage.

K @ Home Ultimate

Our Ultimate level includes everything from Level 1 & 2 as well as everything else we have that is geared towards Kindergarten! You even get access to our full programs – Raising Rock Stars Kindergarten, You Can Read Sight Words, and You Can Read Word Families! You get all of our seasonal mega bundles, premium theme bundles, Calendar bundle {updated with the new year when it is released}, Tracing Fun Bundle, and Opposites Bundle!

In addition to what is there now, if I create anything new for Kindergarten it will be added here!

Below you can see a screenshot of the private page so you can see a peek of what you will have access to. The screenshot does not show the entire webpage, just the top portion so you can see how it is laid out.

Pricing & Savings Info

If you are a number cruncher like me, you’ll want to know exactly how much you are saving by purchasing a K @ Home membership. I created a Google Doc here with those details! You can see a list of the products included in each level, the savings per level, and the cost of each level. The cost is the lowest currently but will go up as new products are added. The price will be increased before the end of the summer, so if you are wanting to have access for the upcoming school year, don’t wait!

Membership Length

Memberships are valid for 1 year, BUT I have added 3 additional months just for a limited time, so you can rest at ease knowing you’ll have access throughout the entire summer and next school year. Plenty of time to plan and access everything! I have answers to more FAQ here!

I truly hope this new K @ Home membership section is a blessing to many of you! It is my goal to make things easier for you and to save you time, while also supporting my own family through the sales of my products! I have more ideas to add to the membership area, so it will only get better! Grab your K @ Home membership here!

Lola Plants a Garden features Lola, who is inspired by a collection of garden poems that she reads with her mommy. She wants to plant her own garden of beautiful flowers, so she and Mommy go to the library to check out books about gardening. They choose their flowers and buy their seeds. They dig and plant. And then they wait. Lola finds it hard to wait for her flowers to grow, but she spends the time creating her own flower book. Soon she has a garden full of sunflowers and invites all of her friends for cakes and punch and a story amongst the flowers.
