1-2-3 Come Learn About Seasons and Months With Me
At the end of the year, I liked to make a list of lessons I wanted to expand on for the fall.
I'd take an item a day and search the Internet for new and fresh ideas through the summer.
One of the topics I listed quite often was calendar. There just never seemed to be enough time to include everything I wanted to, during calendar time.
So that this activity did not get too long, I'd do a bit in the morning, some in the afternoon, and then tie everything up at the end of our busy day.
There is so much important "trivia" that can be covered in quick easy reviews during calendar time.
I also liked to supplement what we covered in some additional activities relating to days of the week, months, and seasons.
Because these were words on our word wall, short independent activities were perfect for Daily 5.
With this in mind, I designed "My Book Of Months" as well as "My Book Of Seasons."
They both cover a variety of Common Core Reading Standards as well as the math concepts of counting, ordinal numbers andpatterning.
Children read the simple sentence, trace and then write the number, month and season words. They circle the capital letters and add end punctuation as well.
Students color the puffy words in an ABAB pattern with appropriate colors for that particular month. i.e. red and green for December.
Children also complete the sentence by adding something they see during that month, or like to do during that season.
There are also additional writing extensions in the season booklet, as students tell what their favorite season is and why, as well as what month they were born in.
These booklets will be free for an entire year, after which time they will be combined and updated into an emergent reader for my TpT shop: Months & Seasons Emergent Reader With Matching Posters Packet
