Ocean Life ~ August ~ Calendar Connections Cards

I have been brainstorming with my good friend Shannon since the idea of Calendar Connections came to me.  We have decided to move forward as a team.  She is a fellow inner city missionary with me and also a homeschooler {and former school teacher}.  She has 4 kiddos ages 1, 6, 12, and 14.  She wrote the facts for this set and I created the final file, it was a total team effort!  In order to help support their missionary family, all ocean life books linked in the file and in the Amazon widgets are linked to her account.  If you make a purchase through those links you will be supporting their family!!!

We chose an Ocean theme for August.  The facts are written at a 3-6th grade level but you will be able to water them down for younger kids.  It’s a great way to involve your entire family in exploring a particular theme.

The cards fit my particular pocket chart calendar {which is currently out of stock on Oriental Trading}, item # IN-62/2017…

but you could use a poster foam board and velcro to easily create your own set up.  You could also use a standard pocket chart.  They seem like they would fit in this calendar on Amazon but I am not certain.

I printed my numbers on cardstock and laminated them before cutting them apart.

Did anyone else use the July Calendar Cards?  We did and they were a HUGE success {still are as we are finishing up}!  We played tons of review games and used little fruit snacks {and M&Ms one day…they were THRILLED} that I tossed them when they could answer my quiz questions.  I am absolutely amazed with the knowledge Krash has soaked up.
