At the beginning of the English class, I normally do the routines og the calendar. With the children we say what day is today, the month, the day of the week, the season and the weather.
Last year, I used an interactive Calendar in the computer, which you can find here. But I were not very satisfied with that, because for my young learners in year 1, they can’t manipulate the calendar, they can only pointed to it. (However, I’m going to continue using it with my older students in year 4)
So I’ve been thinking about do one more attractive for them. On the internet you can find many examples, like this and this you can see in the blog. But finally I have printed, laminated, cut, drawn and sticked the different pieces for THIS one:
Moreover, I’m going to include also a poster with the months of the year very colorful and funny I found in the summer. It came in a pack with 12 units, so we are going to put one in all the primary classrooms.
I hope you can find it useful and as inspiration for your classes.
