Many classroom teachers do “morning meetings” where they go over the calendar, weather, and other routines. I like to bring calendars into my therapy room to target a variety of skills WHILE reviewing the calendar vocabulary. In the past, I have often found blank calendars on the internet. I decided, why not create pages perfect for my needs! I put all of the goals and activities I like to use in one spot just for you!!
In this companion pack:
Blank calendar pages are provided which can be adapted for each year by just writing in the numbers. You can write in the numbers ahead of time and laminate the pages or leave them blank and have students fill them in as a following directions activity.
Color & Black/White versions are provided.
Activities to target a variety of skills using calendar pages provided or with any wall/desk calendar:
-Following directions: Students will practice concepts while following multi-step directions (first, second, third, before, after, between, etc.). Can be used with any month!
Students can input holidays, birthday, and other events such as field trips. This can elicit conversation, work on following directions, build vocabulary, and answering questions. A list of holidays/events per month is included (may vary based on year/geographic location).
-Answering questions: For each month, question cards are provided. **16 question cards per month are provided!
-Compare/contrast: use the Venn diagram provided to compare the different months of the year. I even provided a visual with prompts to help students complete this task!
-Resources are provided for your assistance while using this activity pack!
-Articulation word list by sound related to calendar theme
-Say & Color: Students can color a calendar after they practice producing their articulation targets!
-Verb Practice: Use the various verb pictures to have students glue onto the calendar pages for the month. They can practice using the various verb tenses using the sentence strips provided!
-Write A Grammar Story: Students should use their verbs and noun tenses to write a story about their month. You can give each student a different month to write about and have the group guess who wrote each one!
