Random calendar idea
Somewhere on the world wide web I saw this simple idea for learning the calendar and practicing numbers and writing with preschoolers. JT and I have been doing it since the beginning of the year and he LOVES it- he looks forward to it every night. We hung a calendar in his bedroom and every night before bed he writes the day’s date and then makes a big X on the square for the day.
We also write in something that happened that day (preschool or snow or played with friends) and talk about the things that are coming up in the next few days and weeks. It’s a simple way to encourage him to practice writing his numbers and to start reinforcing the days of the week and grasping the concept of the calendar and time.
Try it with your preschooler!
