Different Ways to Use the Calendar Cards

How do you use your Calendar Cards? Is a comment question that I get asked. I love calendars. They teach so many different skills.

Every month you see the great cards but don’t know what you would do with them. You lack space to put them up and no where to store them. I thought I would show you some ways that I use them. Nothing has to be used as it is intended.

For both of these activities you print the Calendar Cards 6 pages on one page, scissors and a glue stick.

For this first example you need a set of calendar cards and the blank write in the number in from the Blank Calendar Set for your current month. For the examples I’m going to be using the Rain Calendar Set and the Flower Calendar Set. You print the cards as shown above. For an older child have them cut out all the calendar cards.

You have your child look at the blank write in the number for the current month. There is a * on the starting day of the month. You have them glue on the number for the day. This can be down with the pattern cards or the non pattern set.

A second way to do this activity is to use the Single Page with the Pattern on the Calendar from any of the calendar sets. I’ll be showing you an example from the Rain Calendar Set and the Flower Calendar Set. You print the cards as shown above.

You have them glue on the calendar cards onto the matching pattern each day. So you will match up the pattern and the number. This is a good way to practice learning their patterns.
