The New Year (or new school year) is a great time to introduce or reinforce your child’s understanding of months and seasons. If you aren’t using a daily calendar with your child, it’s great to start introducing daily calendar activities.
Montessori for Everyone has some lovely free printables that are very helpful in preparing Montessori-inspired activities to help your child understand time in the form of months and seasons. At Montessori for Everyone, you’ll find free printables for recording the weather, calendar activity set, months of the year cards, seasons and clothing matching, the four seasons cards, and seasons matching cards. The downloadable pdf files have suggestions for making the printables into Montessori-oriented activities.
Another wonderful resource for calendar activities is Counting Coconuts. Check out the post “Our Classroom Calendar & Circle Time.” and the free calendar cards!
UPDATE: For some fun ways to add interest, check out my post “Enliven Your Homeschool with Some Calendar Fun.”
Do you have a favorite calendar activity and/or activity to teach your child the months and seasons?
