! Fitting in everything you have to teach is even harder. So why spend time on things that are NOT in your standards and are NOT developmentally appropriate? I used to get so frustrated trying to keep my kids engaged during calendar time. Then I changed to a linear calendar, and it changed everything! If you aren’t using a linear calendar during your circle time, here’s why you need to start:
⭐ It’s developmentally appropriate.
⭐ It makes sense to preschoolers.
⭐ YOU need an engaging way to teach the passage of time!
When you make the switch to a linear calendar, you will be amazed at how engaged your students are. Their understanding of time concepts will increase like you won’t believe!
Take a look at what’s included:
Basic Linear Calendar Set
✅ Number cards 1-31
✅ School cards
✅ Home cards
✅ Over 50 holiday and special event cards
✅ Black & white version
✅ Full directions for setting up and using your linear calendar!
Monthly & Holiday Number Sets
✅ 12 monthly sets (1 set per month)
✅ 7 holiday sets including Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, 4th of July, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas
✅ 3 sets of numbers per month/holiday
Look what teachers are saying:
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “My students and I LOVE this! They are engaged in calendar time, recognizing patterns, beginning to develop number sense (a “twenty” number will start with a 2), and love counting ahead to the next special day. I’m already seeing growth and new understanding, even after just a few weeks!. ~Randi L.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “I LOVE these linear calendar numbers! I use them every month and have laminated them to use the next school year. I love the fact that I can use them for pattern recognition during circle time and my kids love how bright and fun they are.” ~Whitney N.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “I am very pleased with the calendar. I was unsure when someone recommended the linear calendar to me but am now a fan.” ~Maureen D.
