When Saving Time and Money Is Important and Quality Matters!

Calendar Crafts, Calendar Preschool Activities and Kindergarten Lessons, Calendar Printables

Calendar Preschool Activities and Calendar Crafts. Every year the earth rotates one time around the sun. Help children learn about the organization of this time into days, weeks, and months with this theme on the calendar. Fun preschool activities and ideas to incorporate into morning circle time, songs, movement, literacy activities, and games are all included. Children can graph birthday months, make word wheels, learn about ordinal numbers, sequence the days of the week, and more. Start the theme off by letting children make their own calendar craft and page for the month ahead or begin a countdown to a special day in the future.

Explain that each year, the earth rotates around the sun one time. It takes 12 months. As each month passes, the earth moves a little bit more around the sun. After 12 months, it has come full circle, and a new year begins. Altogether, it takes 365 days for a complete rotation. For a concrete illustration, have children sit in a circle. Place a model of the sun in the middle. Choose one child to walk around it while holding a model of the earth.

Store days of the week, months of the year, the numbers 1-31, and the years 2010 and 2011 cards in separate manila envelopes. Use thumbtacks or sticky backing to attach the envelopes to corkboard in the calendar or circle area of the classroom.

Incorporate these calendar-themed felt chants into regularly scheduled calendar time activities. Recite the chants and display the correct corresponding days, months, and dates on the felt board when mentioned.
