It’s almost that time again! Time to start out a brand new year.
As much as I love the Christmas holiday season, I always find myself looking forward to the new year as well. It’s a time to start fresh, get a clean slate; a time to reflect on the previous year and make plans for the new one ahead.
As I think back on how our homeschool has evolved over the past 12 months, I can see that there are multiple things that we’ll be changing and revising as the year wears on.
One of the many things that will be sticking around however, is our calendar coloring book.
2017 Calendar Coloring Book
We tried adding this to our daily notebook for the first time this past year to help the soon-to-be kindergartner learn the months of the year and the days of the week. It’s been so much fun that we decided to do it again this year!
Between the coloring book and our home preschool calendar board, practicing those calendar skills has been super easy and with little sister moving up to the preschool age this year, I can’t wait to get her in on the fun as well.
Just like last year’s, this printable calendar set includes 12 pages, one for each month of the year and each page includes a fun themed picture at the top for your child to color.
The biggest difference between this year’s and last’s is that the days of the week are separated. You’ll find that the weekdays are now one color while the weekends are another.
While trying to teach the little guy the difference between weekdays and weekends this past year we wound up highlighting all of the Saturdays and Sundays on our calendar to make them easier to see and separate. With this year’s set, I simply made them different colors in the beginning so that we could avoid having to do that again this year.
Now, when the first of each month rolls around, we’re ready to just grab another calendar page, pop it into a page protector in our notebook to keep it from getting ripped throughout the month and get to coloring!
Your little ones will have so much fun crossing off the days as the month wears on and coloring the pictures that they won’t even realize they’re learning.
