Every month, my students make a calendar of their very own to go home. This is an example of the one we did for January 2013. In the classroom, it provides monthly practice for number writing, pattern, as well as a fun seasonal art project. This activity is also a great way to reinforce concepts of number and time as students refer to it at home. Some children count down the days to favorite holidays and review days of the week. By the end of the year, all students are writing numbers to 30 independently. Yahoo!! Lots of teachers do this activity because it is such a winner!
Update: I made a product with all the months of the year to do this project in your classroom. It is updated every school year. Each month has three different versions to meet the needs of all your students. You can get it at Teachers Pay Teachers. Just click on the link or image
