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!

Her shelves were mostly Fall themed, with a few random items!

On her shelves…IMG_4738IMG_4746  IMG_4747

Our fall sensory bin was out in the open and played with daily.  Ladybug works on so many skills while she plays.

Here she was tossing leaves as we were singing one of our fall songs.IMG_4761

PacMan was “leaf blowing” with our ball toy!IMG_4780

I added in a glass jar when I was close by, she had fun using her tongs to put items in.

IMG_4908  IMG_5014

She chose to use the tongs for clean up time mostly too!IMG_4913

She learned to stuff leaves down the blower toy and make them shoot out!

IMG_5029 IMG_5030

We used marbles for spooning one day too…IMG_5036

The leaves/styrofoam was fun, although Krash liked it more than she did!

She had more fun arranging them and watching them spin around!IMG_4902

Plastic letters into the can was a BIG hit and played with daily.IMG_4880

In honor of her Tot School Printable train theme, I got out her big toy train too.

Of course our Foam blocks were out a lot.  This particular time she was covering up her friends and rescuing them!

I printed out some fall activities I thought she might enjoy, mostly from other websites-which I link to below.

Here she is coloring a squirrel.  She worked on him almost every day!

Ladybug still loves the iPad, usually while sitting in our bean bag.  We got a few new apps recently and she has some old favorites too.  She has spent most of her time playing Tozzle, Monkey Preschool, GoFun, Starfall, and Kneebouncers.  She is determined to figure out Monkey Math, which is Krash’s game, but it is a bit too hard for her.  She likes to do it with me.IMG_5044

Pocket Chart Printables

Pocket Chart Printables



While reading the book, I Like Bugs, with Krash one night an idea hit me.

image

He really enjoyed the book and asked me to read it several times. My days of teaching Kindergarten flooded back to me and the image of a pocket chart popped into my head.

So what did I do?

I said goodnight and jumped on the computer to create my first set of Pocket Chart Printables! I can’t sleep when an idea hits me and I wanted to act on his love for the book and have it ready for him the next day!Pocket Chart Printables I Like Bugs

What did we do with the pocket chart printables?

We read the book and then laid the strips all around the floor…IMG_8430

We went back and read the book one page at a time and Krash found the matching strip for the pocket chart and put it up…IMG_8433

After they were all up, we read the story in the pocket chart together!IMG_8435

Several times {pencil pointer is from Target $1 section}!IMG_8439

These were very easy to make and he enjoyed the activity a lot. I decided to go ahead and make a couple more sets for other easy readers…

Old, New, Red, Blue is actually a favorite book for Ladybug-to the point that she can almost “read” the entire book herself. I plan to use this set with her!

I made a set for the book, The Frog and the Fly to go along with our upcoming pond theme!

Pocket Chart Printables The Frog and the Fly

If you have any easy readers you’d like me to look into making sets for, let me know! I forgot how much I loved a pocket chart and we have really been putting ours to good use lately {you can see it in recent Tot School photos}. They do have pocket charts in the $1 section at Target right now, I am not certain of the size. If you have a Target definitely check it out. You could always buy 2 if they aren’t big enough and hang them side by side!

You can download these sets and any others I create here on my website for FREE!
