Thanksgiving Calendar Connections 2016-2018

Several  years ago we released the Thanksgiving Calendar Connections cards. Each year the date of Thanksgiving changes, so updates are needed.This new update will give you the pages you need to use this set from 2016-2018!

Thanksgiving Calendar Connections 2016 through 2018

The premium version of the new Thanksgiving Calendar Connections cards updated for 2016-2018 can be downloaded on the main Calendar Connections webpage, for FREE! Just scroll down to the Thanksgiving section.

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.

NOTE: these DO print front to back, as they are the premium design.

I am no longer updating the small set, just the large set!

These fit perfectly in the calendar shown in the Amazon widget below.


You can use most of our Calendar Connections cards for any month! There are even more here!

2016 Summer Olympics Calendar Connections Cards

Summer Olympics 2016 Calendar Connections Cards

The 2016 Summer Olympics are coming soon!  In honor of this special event I created a new set of Calendar Connections just for August 2016! The Olympics run from Aug 5-21, 2016 this year, so you can easily take the month of August to learn a bit about the games and different sports! Simple summer learning!

These are a one time use set, so they are very simple, with a graphic on the front only.


The cards fit my particular pocket chart calendar.  I print my numbers on cardstock and laminate them before cutting them apart.

Flower Calendar Connections

Flower Identification Calendar Connections

My daughter has been very interested in flowers lately so I created a Flower Identification Calendar Connections set! This set is very basic and just focuses in naming the flowers, thus no back page with information.  She was interested in learning names and seeing pretty flowers which is why I made it simple.

She has enjoyed seeing which flower is next each day, simple summer learning for us!

I hide that little bucket of cards and give her the new one each day as a surprise and she puts in in our calendar.

Backyard Birds Calendar Connections {K-2}

North American Backyard Birds Calendar Connections for K-2nd Grade

Yesterday we shared our new All About Birds Calendar Connections with you!  Today I am excited to share our new set created especially for younger children!

We chose Backyard Birds for our K-2 theme! I must admit that I selfishly chose this theme for Shannon to create for us in honor of my daughter’s OBSESSION with our birds right now.  I made sure all of our personal backyard birds were included and then we worked together to add other common backyard birds from across North America.

On the back of each card you’ll find 4 things: food, nesting, location and a special fact. We wanted to limit the information on the back to be simple for younger kids to learn.  We tried to do this by focusing on what the particular bird eats, where/how it nests, where it lives, and one neat fact.

NOTE: these DO print front to back, as they ARE our premium design. We have decided moving forward that all of our free sets will be this design.  A bundle with an eBook option will be offered for sale in my Teacher’s Notebook Shop too.  You can see an example of the bundled set here!


The cards fit my particular pocket chart calendar.  I print my numbers on cardstock and laminate them before cutting them apart.
