Calendars and Clippies!

I want to share with you our Calendar Board in our School Room!
(Click on it to see a bigger and clearer version if you wish.)

 We talk about the new date of the day- the weekday, the month, the numbered day, the year.  What day it is today, tomorrow, and yesterday.  We chart the weather and talk about the season.

 We have song pages hung up on rings that we take down and sing the songs about the months of the year, the date, the days of the week.  We found our calendar songs and some extra printables from HERE and HERE.

We chart and record the weather and review the Seasons.
The added Seasons and Months we have on the wall is from HERE.
 We mark the current month with a sticker, as well as the current season.
I have all the pieces laminated for durability, so we are able to use our Wipe-off Crayons for our Weather Graph.

We like to use our Hand Pointer from Learning Resources too, as we count the calendar numbers, say the days of the week, and the months of the year.

I have a sticky hook on the wall that holds a small box.  We are able to hold our extra numbers, calendar holidays, Wipe-off Crayons, and weather cards.  We use magnets to hold up the interchangeable weekdays and weather cards so they can be changed daily easily.

After our  Calendar, I review Butterfly's "Information", in which we practice saying her full name, her parents' names, her address, her phone number, her age, her town's name, her city, her province, her country.  I want her to know these off by heart, it is very important for a child to know their information.

I have to show you something beautiful in Butterfly's hair lately!

I received these beautiful hair clips from My SoCal Creations, a cute Etsy shop.

Here is Butterfly wearing her new clips.

These are rolled fabric flowers, beautifully handmade, almost a vintage feel.

My SoCal Creations has all sorts of cute hair clips.  I like the part where no-slip grips are put inside the clip for a more stronger hold.

Here Butterfly wanted to wear both flowers at the same time :)

Thank you Joanna for Butterfly's new hair clips!  Perfect to go with her summer dresses!  She loves them!

  2. Hi there. Thanks for stopping by my blog - I haven't posted in ages as there are plans underway for a new and improved blog!!! I'll let you know when its up and running. And I've only just found your comment about the crazy soap - no its not shaving foam. I get it from our local supermarket (Tesco), it comes in a bottle like a hair mousse bottle and its about £2. Its actually called Crazy soap! weird stuff, but the kids love it. Happy spring to you too!
