We shared two different printable 2015 calendars for kids recently and these covers would be great for those, or for any Calendar Notebook you have created!

Since we had a rough and busy last semester, I didn’t even do any calendar with Ladybug, which saddens me since it is so fun and meaningful in Kindergarten.  All of that is changing next week.  She has a new Calendar Notebook, with printables from our tracing calendar and our basic calendar notebook.  I will share her new set up very soon!

Dot Fun 2015 Calendar for Kids

Last week we shared our new Color & Trace 2015 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

Goose ~ Kindergarten Literature Unit Printables

Our next Kindergarten Literature Unit Study Printable Pack is ready!  I continue to develop literature unit studies behind the scenes and am excited to share our next free printable unit with you.

A few have asked if I am going in the order the books are listed here on the blog, and the answer is NO.  I am going in random order and that list is not set in stone.  On the website here, at the bottom, I will share the next 2 books I am working on so you’ll have a bit of notice in case you need it.

Goose Kindergarten Literature Unit Printables

Goose is a favorite book of Ladybug’s, featuring a goose who grows up away from her momma!  The goose feels different from her other animal friends and goes out on her own and learns she can fly!

In this printable unit you will find a sample lesson plan.  I provide a lesson plan idea, but even I probably won’t follow this, it is just an idea.  Make this work for you and your child!

Lesson Plan

 

For each unit, I am selecting Kindergarten math goals from our list. For this unit I chose patterns, shapes, number words, and counting/writing numbers to 30.

Number Word 3 Part Cards ShapesPatterns Numbers 1-30

  

Lots of literacy activities; Letter G sound, sequencing the story, comprehension questions, writing, and rhyming words.

Letter G is for Story SequencingComprehension Rhyming WordsWriting

  

For our Science focus, children will sort birds/mammals, and sequence the life cycle of a goose.

The first character connection is focused on each of use being special in our own way just as goose was.  The second is about persevering through difficult tasks.

A Color of His Own is a favorite book of Ladybug’s.  This is a popular book I am sure many of you are familiar with. Ladybug really likes chameleons and other reptiles, which is why I think she really enjoys this story.  I expanded on many aspects of the story for the printables, hope you enjoy them!

A Color of His Own Lesson Plan

For each unit, I am selecting Kindergarten math goals from our list. For this unit I chose counting 1-30 {with some tracing}, working with a number line, positional words, and shape identification.

The Selfish Crocodile is a favorite book of Ladybug’s.  This is a longer book with a great storyline about treating others nicely.  In the beginning the crocodile is selfish and grouchy but then a little mouse helps him and in the end he is friendly with the other animals.  I love this one as much as she does!


In this printable unit you will find a sample lesson plan.  I provide a lesson plan idea, but even I probably won’t follow this, it is just an idea.  Make this work for you and your child!

Lesson Plan

For each unit, I am selecting Kindergarten math goals from our list. For this unit I chose ordinal numbers, ordering by size, basic fractions, and greater/less than.
