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 Dot Fun Printable Calendar for Kids

2016 Dot Fun Calendar for Kids

Yesterday we shared our new Color & Trace 2016 Calendar for Kids.  Some kids aren’t ready for tracing but would enjoy having a calendar of their own.  I created this dot version for those kids! Use dot paint, or dot stickers, or simply color in the dots each day!

Learning ideas to go along with these printables ~

Calendar-3016

 

  • At the beginning of each new month, color the focus picture. If your child doesn’t like to color, color together…make it fun!
  • Each new day, dot paint the day, or use a dot sticker and talk about what day it is.
  • Practice counting each day up to the date.
  • Use 2 or 3 colors to create a pattern.
  • At the beginning of each month go through and mark the special days {holidays, birthdays, anniversaries or anything your family celebrates}.  Have your child decorate those special dates so you can look forward to them!

Don’t have Dot Paint {or don’t want to be messy with little ones}?  Use Dot Stickers instead!  Color-Dot-Stickers

All About Birds Calendar Connections

All About Birds Calendar Connections Printables

I am so excited to share that my friend Shannon {she writes the Calendar Connections cards for us, I design and host them} is back with new Calendar Connections for you!  She came to visit me a couple of weeks ago and we sat side by side as she created these! 

We also brainstormed new topics together and have a brand new line of K-2 Calendar Connections coming your way!  Our main sets are targeted for grades 3-6, and can be used with any ages.  Our new K-2 sets are much simpler and are more similar to our current Baby Animals set here.  Stay tuned, we have our first K-2 set coming this week also!

{disclaimer ~ affiliate links are used}


We chose All About Birds for our next theme! This set will take you through the world of birds and discuss many scientific facts about the bird world.  The facts are written at a 3rd – 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 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 soon.  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.

We also still create 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!Calendar Connections All About Birds 3rd-6th Grade SMALL
