Black History ~ Calendar Connections

Black History Calendar Connections Printables

 


We have another new set of Calendar Connections cards! My wonderful friend Shannon took a break but she is back with a new set and plans for more in the near futurehas been hard at work behind the scenes! She writes the Calendar Connections cards for us, I design and host them.

We chose Black History for our next theme! Black History Month was a requested theme by many last year and Shannon has worked hard on this set. This new set tells a bit about the history of Black History Month, and features 27 different African-Americans who have contributed to our country in great ways. This set is featured for February, so you will notice there are only 29 cards, instead of the normal 31.

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 NOT print front to back, only the premium design does. These are the original cards, which we still offer for free. You can see an example of the bundled set here!


The cards fit my particular pocket chart calendar. I put the image cards in the pockets backwards and flip each day We either keep the information cards in a folder or behind the image card and pull it out on the correct day to read it. Calendar

You could use a poster foam board and velcro to easily create your own set up. You could also use a standard pocket chart.


I am now creating smaller sets to go along with the small pocket charts found in the Target $1 section. Be sure to visit this post for a tutorial of how to sew your $1 pocket chart into a calendar!

There is also a sheet included to be used in a Calendar Notebook if you are using those too!

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

You can download these for FREE here!


You can use most of our Calendar Connections cards for any month! We now have 15 sets to choose from, and we will still be adding more too!

Thanksgiving Calendar Connections 2013

A couple of years ago we released the Thanksgiving Calendar Connections cards. Each year the date of Thanksgiving changes, so there needed to be an update last year. If you downloaded the set last year, you won’t need this one, last year’s update had cards for 2012-2015, in the premium version {with the color border and prints front to back, that we usually sell}. I deleted the 2012 cards and this year have a new 2013-2015 download available, if this set is new to you!

The premium version of the new Thanksgiving Calendar Connections cards updated for 2013-2015 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 updated the small set for 2013 too, find it on the same webpage.

There is no eBook version of this set, due to the fact that I misplaced the folder with the images we used and it would take forever to find them again!


The cards fit my particular pocket chart calendar.

BUT, you don’t have to use this eBook with the CC cards, it can stand alone as a simple way to learn about a particular topic. The series is created with 3rd-6th graders in mind, but it isn’t limited to those grades. It is a great way to explore a topic across grade levels within your homeschool!

For this topic, I added in a few extra photos to some of the pages, here’s a peek…
