Updated Calendar Notebook Binder Printables

A few of you asked for more weather options on the Calendar Notebook Binder – and they are uploaded and ready! Everything else is the same, but there is also a non-seasonal version for those of you in the Southern Hemisphere!

The Calendar Notebook has been a fun addition to our learning each morning and a chance to work on math skills, a little bit of science, and also handwriting. We use these daily along with our Morning Calendar Board.

Below you can download three different versions of the Calendar Notebook Binder printables: one for early handwriting and manuscript, one for cursive, and another for the Southern Hemisphere folks (no seasonal clip art so the seasons aren’t confusing!).

Calendar-Binder-month-glance

Both the manuscript and cursive version now include the following seven weather choices: sunny, partly sunny, cloudy, rainy, stormy, windy, and snowy.

How to Use the Calendar Notebook

Here’s a peek at how we’re using ours with the kids, and because some of you may not want to read, here is a video tour our our calendar notebook. You can also read this post for more detailed explanations on the pages.

 
 

{feed readers may need to visit the blog to view the video clip}

We’ve laminated the first few pages and use a vis’-a-vis marker {it wipes off easily with a damp cloth each day} to work in the notebook. You can otherwise slide the pages into page protectors and use dry erase markers.

The calendar notebook printables also include the following:

 

    • 12 undated monthly calendars {you can use them year after year}
    • monthly weather tracking graphs
    • Today is, number word identification, telling time and temperature
    • Breaking down numbers by 1’s, 10’s, and 100’s
    • Practicing tally marks
    • Yearly weather tracking
    • Handwriting practice
    • Pattern practice {part of the monthly calendar pages}
    • Identification of seasons
    • 100 Days of School chart

Pirate Theme Early Learning Printables – updated and expanded!

Pirate theme printables for preschool and kindergarten



A few years ago I shared a pirate theme lapbook that we used with our oldest son and it was recently updated to include more printables! Of course, I figured you all might enjoy the chance to use it too!

Rather than a lapbook style, the Pirate Theme Early Learning Printables pack includes some of the familiar favorites: vocabulary cards, a story sheet, verses, beginning letter sounds as well as a few ‘new’ printables that don’t fit in pockets: mazes, tracer pages, and more.

Download the Pirate Early Learning Printables HERE!

Pirate Lapbook

The original Pirate Lapbook is still available to download as well, and includes a few extra printables that are not a part of the expanded Pirate Pack.

This past year has seen a lot of changes in our home thanks to Young Living Essential Oils. We’ve changed from many of our over-the-counter medications and instead found natural remedies that have worked amazingly. Our favorite oils are peppermint, lavender, peace and calming, thieves, and lemon – all in the everyday oils collection.If you’d like to find out more, feel free to email me (I’d love to talk with you) or learn more here.
