Linear Calendar Activities with Recycled Calendars
Previously we used recycled calendars for counting activities as well as worked with time the Montessori way. Because we just found even more old calendars we recently spent some more time observing them in a linear fashion. I Spy different months was one way of looking at the calendar cut apart, taped together, and set up as a circle. Can you spy your birthday month? Halloween? Winter? Spring? Yes, Miss Owl certainly could. We just used the photo side of the calendar and taped the pages together on the back. Sitting inside the whole year was fun! It was interesting to match seasonal objects to the different months as well. Family pictures could be matched to birthday months.
Of course, the calendar may be set up in a linear fashion. Students could walk along the year naming the different months.
I made a free linear calendar printable for 2021. Next is a photo of one of the pages. The number and days of the weeks portion of the printable (snip off the printed rows) may be used with recycled calendar photos to make a lovely display for the linear calendar year. The calendar is in our free eMember area. Thank you, Carolyn
