Calendar Time Freebie!!

Just wanted to share a couple printables that I made for the girls to use during our calendar time. 

Jocelyn uses this calendar worksheet to go along with our large wall calendar. We also sing the days of the week song

(To the tune of the Adam's Family theme song.)

There's Sunday, and there's Monday.
There's Tuesday, and there's Wednesday.
There's Thursday day, and there's Friday.
And then there's Saturday.

Days of the week.
{clap, clap}
Days of the week.
{clap, clap}
Days of the week.
Days of the week.
Days of the week.
{clap, clap}

I also plan on introducing this song after the girls have the days of the week song down.

The Months 

January brings the snow;
Makes our feet and fingers glow.
February brings the rain;
Thaws the frozen pond again.
March brings the wind so cold and chill;
Drives the cattle from the hill.
April brings us sun and showers,
And the pretty wildwood flowers.
May brings grass and leafy trees,
Waving in each gentle breeze.
June brings roses, fresh and fair,
And the cherries ripe and rare.
July brings the greatest heat,
Cloudless skies and dusty street.
August brings the golden grain;
Harvest time is here again.
Mild September brings us more
Fruit and grain, for winter store.
Brown October brings the last
Of ripening gifts, from summer past.
Dull November brings the blast:
Down from the trees the leaves fall fast.
Cold December ends the rhyme
With blazing fires and Christmas time.

The weather graph was made for my two year old (although it would also work great for older kids). She really wanted to do the calendar activity with her big sister but it was a little advanced for her. I may add more to it later but for now she is enjoying it. 

What kind of calendar activities do you use for your younger kids? Please share your ideas in the comments!!
