Here’s our January calendar. We don’t spend a lot of time on the calendar, but I say “It’s Tuesday (point to Tuesday), January (point to January), 20, 2015. One child puts the number on. Then we usually count how many days are on the calendar so far.  We also have the option of talking about patterns on the number cards. This month’s pattern is ABCD.

We also talk about the weather and put up a weather piece.

We made some big dinosaur bones when we were learning about paleontologists and excavation sites. First we covered them with tape for some texture and then painted them with white paint. Those are some big dinosaur bones!

We’ve been talking about being “forgiving”. We did some role-playing and we look for times throughout the day that we can say “I forgive you” because learning to communicate and understand each other is so important!
