Hi! I hope you are all staying safe during this crazy time! March is about over, which means it’s time for my April 2020 Printable Preschool and Kindergarten Calendars! Hopefully that also means it’s about time for the weather to change as well, and maybe we can start getting outside for some fresh air soon!
These calendars are perfect for kiddos who need more handwriting and number writing practice! I’ve created a traceable version where they can practice number formation and counting.
I’ve also created one with numbers already printed for students not ready for handwriting, or for students who already know how to write numbers well.
To use the traceable calendar: Have students use a marker or pencil to trace each number, then have student count up to today’s number.
To use the dot calendar: Have students a bingo dabber or small stickers to mark each day as it passes. Have students start back at one and count up to today’s number for counting practice. If they’re ready you might also encourage them to count only odd or even numbers.
Alternate advanced ideas:
Have students create a pattern as they write/mark their dates!
For example write odd numbers in red and even numbers in blue (ABA pattern). For more advanced patterns, use multiple colors to create more patterns.
You can also use stickers to create patterns, for example on day 1 put a star sticker, day 2 a smiley face, day 3 a star, and so on. See below for more pattern ideas.
Here are a few patterns you can encourage your kiddos to use when working with daily calendars:
- AAB (i.e.: red, red, blue)
- ABBA (i.e.: red, blue, blue, red)
- ABAB (i.e.: red, blue, red, blue)
- ABC (i.e.: red, blue, green)
There are lots of ways to create patterns, so feel free to get creative with your calendars!
Weather: I’ve also included a small weather graph at the bottom of the monthly calendar as well. Have students put an “x” or colored dot in the appropriate weather row each day. At the end of the month compare to see which type of weather was most/least common.
