Monthly Traceable Calendars

monthly traceable calendars

The new school year is upon us, and I am super excited to present our Monthly Traceable Calendars. At the beginning of each month, I have my pre-k students make a calendar. This is one of our favorite things to do. They get excited to take it home and display it on their refrigerators, and I get excited about all of the learning opportunities they hold. Doing a monthly calendar teaches the following skills:

– Fine motor (proper tripod grasp and tracing)
– Counting
– One-to-one correspondence
– Writing numbers
– Number recognition
– Writing left to right
– Writing top to bottom
– Ordinal concepts
– Critical thinking

At the beginning of each month, talk about the weeks ahead and any important events that will be occurring. Have your young learners trace the numbers. I recommend working with them individually or in small groups. At the start of the year, some children may struggle to complete their calendars due to the level of difficulty and/or a short attention span. And that’s okay. Growth will be obvious as the year progresses.

While working with children, stress the importance of a proper pencil grip and writing left to right and top to bottom. There is a black dot on each letter and number on the calendars. Encourage your preKers to get into the habit of placing their crayon or pencil on that starting point. This will help teach them proper formation.

Also included in this pack are 12 traceable calendars with some missing numbers. These are for students that are developmentally ready to recognize and write numerals. These should be introduced accordingly.

Once the calendar is complete, kids may glue them onto a large piece of construction paper decorate the topper. They may then place stickers on any significant dates (e.g., birthday, holiday. etc.).
