Calendar Time in September

One of the new things we added in our homeschooling this year is the calendar time. I bought two new large cork boards. One for my kindergartner to tell the date, days of the week, weather, time, temp and season. The other board is for the fun poem and scripture reading worksheets that he did every week and for the themed worksheets that my preschooler has worked on.

Here’s little G smiling and preparing to answer his calendar time worksheets. He really enjoy doing this activity everyday when our school starts.

tellingmonthandyearfirstweek

He pointed the month of September and year 2014 in the picture above.

tellingdaysoftheweek

He also said the days of the week. We also sang the Days of the week song with the tune of the Adams family theme.

countingdatesforwardandbackward

He counts the numbers from the starting number to the present date and he also says it backwards, everyday. It really helped him to count not just forwards but backwards too.

writingnumberwordoftheday

Every day there is a different date/number. He also writes the number word of that date. In the picture above, it was the last day of September, so he wrote the number word thirty.

He also spell the day of the week, shade the number date like a bingo, recognize today’s number and numbers before and after that date.

writingtimetempandclothingtowear

He liked writing what time it is, coloring the thermometer after finding out what the temperature it is outside (we have an outdoor thermometer) and drawing clothes to match appropriate clothing for the weather.

He’s so proud he got to complete the weather graph for September.

chartingseptembercalendar

He is also happy that he got to complete and create a September calendar.

tellingtheseason

I got those daily activity sheets after I downloaded them for free at Confessionsofahomeschooler.com online. It’s really great to have those sheets for the kids to have an easy review when pointing out what’s going on in the calendar board.

tellingtheweather

He pointed out the last weather update for September.

counting1to30andbackwards

He counted 1 to 30 and backwards in the calendar.

 So that’s my busy kindergartner. Hope you enjoy our pictures!

    We do something similar with my son for school. Ours came with the curriculum kit I purchased. I would have done one like yours had I not gotten this one.

    Love the picture with him holding the teacher stick. Very cute! Also and amazed by his handwriting! What a fabulous job he is doing writing clearly! Kids his age tend to not be able to grasp that so quickly.

    It sounds like he is doing a great job. I think my kids both learned that stuff in preschool 🙂

  5. So many great ways to use that calendar! The pictures are adorable, and it looks like your son is having a lot of fun learning.
