Preschool Calendar Notebook

Preschool Calendar Notebooks – they’re finally here for the 2015-2016 school year!

Happy Dances all around!

Because my 4 1/2 year old has worked through the preschool notebook quite a bit this year, I decided to give it a face lift so it would seem new to her when we started back with it in late summer.

My plan is to use this preschool notebook with my 4 1/2 year old until we break for Christmas and then change to the Kindergarten Calendar Notebook.  Because she has a November birthday and we homeschool, we can start her ‘real’ Kindergarten mid-year.

Preschool Calendar Notebook 2015-2016

♥♥♥ Are you looking for the updated Kindergarten and First Grade Calendar? It’s here and FREE for personal use through Wednesday, May 20, 2015!

What is Included in the Preschool Calendar Notebook?

I’ve spent quite a bit of time updating and giving the Preschool Calendar Notebook a face lift!  You’ll find different fonts, different pictures, and a few added pages.

Even if your child used this notebook last year, this year’s will seem new since the pages are different.  The concepts are very similar, however.

This notebook has a couple of pages to complete each day.  Note that the pages are designed to be placed in page protectors and for your child to use a dry erase marker.

 

Monthly Calendars
Monthly Calendars for July 2015 – June 2016 are included.  Your child should trace the date each day.  She’s welcome to cross the day off of the calendar as a count down to the end of the month.

Monthly Number Pictures
These pictures contain the same amount of days in the month.  Your child should find the day’s date and cross it out on the picture.  This helps with recognizing numbers and reinforces the date again. He should feel free to write inside the name of the month, or color it, or decorate the letters any way he chooses.

Preschool Calendar Notebook Months of the Year

“Today is…” Page
The “Today is…” page focuses on learning the days of the week and month, as well as the current year and season.  Complete this page each day, encouraging your child to memorize the days of the week and the months of the year.  We say them every day until my little ones can recite them to me alone.

“Today’s weather is…” and “Today I feel…” Page
At the top of the page, your child draws a circle around the correct weather for the day.  I put my 4-year-old in charge of announcing the day’s weather and she thinks this is the best job ever! Included at the bottom of the page is a section for your child to describe how she feels that day. Have her draw a circle around the face that describes her best.

As a side note, we often play this fun feelings game:

  • I say, “Let me see your sad face.”  And everyone (including me) makes their best sad face.
  • I say, “Everyone show their mad face!”  Then we all show our growliest mad faces.
  • I say, “Let me see your surprised face.” We then show our most shocked surprised faces.  (This is everyone’s favorite!)
  • Then we end on my saying, “Show everyone your happy face.”  And we all end in smiles.

This is a simple game, but so much fun and we play it often.  It’s a great game to play when someone is grumpy.  You just can’t participate and be in a bad mood. :)

 

“This is how I write my name…” Page
On the first of the month, have your child write his name in his best handwriting.  It’s interesting to see how a child’s writing changes in just a few months!

‘Shapes I Know’ Page

You can choose to insert all three of the shapes pages at the beginning of the year, or just choose to focus on 1 particular page of shapes.

Place these in page protectors, and your child can trace the shapes with a dry erase marker.

Other ideas: Use red to color each of the shapes with corners or purple to color each shape that does not have a corner.  Circle one particular shape on the page and then find other shapes like it around the room.  Put an ‘x’ on the shape that starts with the letter P.

Preschool Calendar Notebook Shapes I Know

Alphabet Practice Page

Practice tracing each letter of the alphabet, using upper and lowercase.  Practice just a couple each day or focus on one letter if using a Letter of the Week curriculum.

 

“I can count to…” Page

With this set of number pages, your child will work on recognizing number words.  There’s also ample room to practice writing numbers 1 through 10.

How Do I Set Up the Notebook?

The post contains affiliate links.  For more information, please see my disclosure policy.

To create your Preschool Calendar Notebook, you’ll need the following supplies:

– copy paper

– page protectors

– dry erase markers

– 3-ring notebook

  • Print each of the pages in the downloaded document.  Print them one-sided (not double-sided).
  • Place the July monthly calendar backwards in a page protector.  Insert the page protector into your 3-ring-binder.  The front of the page protector should be showing the backside of the monthly calendar.  When you turn the page protector (like turning the page in a book), you should see the July Monthly Calendar on the left side of your binder.
  • Using your next page protector, place the July Monthly Number Picture on the front side of the protector.  Then slide the “Today is…” Page on the back side of the protector.  Insert the page protector into your binder.  Now when your binder is opened, the July Monthly Calendar should be on the left side of your binder pages and the July Number Picture should be on the right.  When you turn the page, “Today is…” should now be on the left page.
  • Next, place the “Today’s weather is…” Page in the front side of a page protector.  Insert in your notebook.
  • Then, place the alphabet, number, and shapes pages in any order you wish.
  • Lastly, print the rest of the pages and store in a Mama Folder so you can readily change out the notebook for the next month.

So the order of the pages should be:  Monthly Calendar (left side), Monthly Number Picture (right side) —> “Today is..” Page (left side), “Today’s weather is..” (right side)

I also added a few Preschool Color-By-Number Worksheets and ABC Letter Find Worksheets for her to work on while I’m assisting another child.

Comments

  1. Ooh – I really like this! Thanks!

  2. I LOVE this packet! Thanks for sharing. My son will enjoy it.

    When I download the packet a lot of the text is blurred out. Is anyone else having this problem? For example: the headings for the days of the week are just smears of color instead of colored text. And the titles beneath pictures (the feelings under the faces, the type of weather under the pictures) are just black smudges instead of black text. I re-downloaded the file and had the same problem. Any tips?

    Thanks!

    • Beth, are you viewing it in Adobe Acrobat? If not, make sure that you download the free version of Adobe and open it with that.

      I’ve gotten a multitude of emails from Mac users in the past about this same problem. If you use the default pdf reader that Mac has, the formatting is awful.

      To view and print as it needs to be, install Adobe and you should be good to go!

      Thank you for stopping by!
      -Lauren

  6. Thank you so much for providing these! I was just thinking today how I wanted to make an easier version of what I have for my older kids. You saved me HOURS!!!

  8. Thanks so much for sharing! My son will love this. I’m looking forward to your kindergarten version also!

  9. This looks great, thank you!

  10. Michelle says:

    Thanks so much for you hard work that you are willing to share with us!! I really appreciate it. I will be using it with my 3 year old, and Kindergartener, as it will help him feel a part of what we are doing.

    • I’m thrilled you can use it with your own little ones, Michelle. Yes the littles love to be included and this is an easy (and cheap!) way to do it. :)

  11. Looks amazing. The children are going to be so excited by the colors and pictures. Thank you!!

  12. Thanks a lot.

  13. Thank you!! My kids will love this calendar.

  14. Thank you sooo much! I’ve been wanting to start my 4yr old on a more structured schedule but I’ve been a little overwhelmed as I just had our 4th little blessing a month ago (4 in 4yrs. – omw!), so this is such a perfect way to get us going. Thank you for sharing!!

  15. Chelesa sims says:

    Thank you so much.this is so helpful

  16. Lisa Valdez says:

    Thank you so much for all your great free printables. Downloading this tommorow.

  17. Thank you so much for these beautiful pages! So excited to do them with my little girl. :) Greetings from Manila, Philippines!

  18. Thank you so much! This is wonderful!!

  19. Just started our first year homeschooling with a preschooler and a kindergartner. Have wanted something just like this but couldn’t find it…till now! Thanks for sharing your hard work!

  20. wow! Thank you! I really look forward to seeing the Kindergarten one, too.

  21. Jacqueline says:

    Very nice! Thanks so much! So excited to see the K/1 set! You’re awesome! :)

  22. This is wonderful material. I am so excited to start some home “preschool” with my 3-year old in the fall. I feel way out of my league when it comes to preschool/elementary school (I used to teach high school), so resources like these are incredibly valuable to me! Thanks!

  23. Thank you so much for this! I think my kids will really enjoy it. My husband has been saying that we needed to work on the days and months more. I really think this is going to help us a lot. Bless you.

  24. I downloaded the preschool notebook, but the months, seasons, days…are all just blobs rather than words. Any idea as to why?

    • Hey Kelly – Are you using a Mac, by chance? If so, make sure to look through the comments on this post and see if that will resolve it. :)

      Let me know if you still have trouble after following the steps suggested in the comments.

  25. Printing these and the kindergarten/1st grade one off for my kids right now! Thank you again for sharing your hard work with us. What a blessing!

  26. Kelly Uhl says:

    I am going to use this for my 3 year old she wont be 4 till December but she is ready to learn and do what her big brother does.

  27. I love this idea! What a wonderful way to work on learning concepts.

  28. These are fabulous! I use them for my kids and have also linked up to my blog as my featured Freebie of the Day!

    http://jaxmoose.wordpress.com/2013/08/05/calendar-notebooking-printables/

    I’m new to this so I hope I linked back correctly. Thanks for all you do, you’ve been a real inspiration!

  29. This is so cute. My son will love it!

  30. Wow what a great set of resources you offer! A friend recommended me via facebook, happy to have found you!

  31. Katie Devine says:

    I am teaching TK this year and this is a perfect calendar for our use. I hope it is ok for classroom use. I really love it and thank you for sharing your calendar notebook!

  32. I can’t seem to figure out the link to the preschool calendar. Is it working?

    • I see that none of my downloads are working at the moment. Working hard to figure out what the problem is! So sorry. Hope it will be resolved in just a bit. Thanks for your patience!

  33. I am a preschool English teacher in the Dominican Republic and basically in charge of creating my own curriculum. This is SUPER helpful for my students. The repetition is perfect. Thank you so much.

  34. Thank you for creating a preschool calendar notebook…and for making your printables available to everyone, free of charge. For the first time, I am using a calendar notebook with my son…and your printables are fitting our needs — perfectly!

  35. Stephanie Shipley says:

    This is so great! I’ve been looking for stuff to help prepare my son for Kindergarten. I’m glad I stumbled upon your site! I can’t wait to get our binder started :)

  36. Thank you for providing such a high-quality product for free! My students will benefit from it greatly. :)

  37. Thanks so much! I was using a blank calender with my 4 year old. This will help her so much! She is still learning the beginnings of writing.

  38. Thanks so much for this. I’m just waiting on the 2014-2015 version. This looks great for my preschooler who wants to join in with us always.

  39. Stephanie says:

    Is this the 2014-2015? Or can i find that somewhere else? This would be perfect for my 4 yr old too! Please let me know where it is or when it will be available for 2014-2015. Thanks!!

    • Stephanie, it is not the calendar for 2014-2015. I hope to have that up in the next couple of weeks! Unfortunately, this has gotten pushed back on my to-do list for a bit.

      But don’t worry – I WILL publish one for the next school year because we will use this in our own school. So I must get busy working on it! 😉

  40. Colleen Reynolds says:

    Hi! Love the calendar…has it been updated yet for the 2014/2015 school year? Thank you so much!

  41. Love these notebook printables. Would love a 2014-2015 set to begin in our year round school this July. Thanks for the great work.

  42. Thanks for a great resource! I can’t wait for the 2014-2015 version!

  43. This looks amazing! Do you know when you’ll be releasing the 2014-2015 version? I’m anxious to use this with my private ESL students. Thanks!

  44. Will the calendar Notebook get updated for 2014-2015? I really find this fun and useful. Thank you

  45. Marci Bray says:

    I am interested in the Preschool Calendar Notebook. I’ve downloaded the one available via this page. However, I noticed it is for the 2013-2014 year. Do you have one for the 2014-2015 school year? I can’t seem to locate it on your site. Thanks!

    • It’s coming soon. I hope :) I’m halfway finished with the Preschool Notebook and will try to finish it up this weekend. There just aren’t enough hours in my day. :)

      I’m using it with my own preschooler this year, so it will definitely be completed before the school year begins!

  46. Jennifer W says:

    Thank you. Best calendar notebook I’ve seen for Kindergarten around!

  47. I downloaded the 2014-2015 version but it says the document cannot be opened. I have Windows 7 and Adobe. Any ideas what could be wrong?

    • Brandi, I have no idea. I’m sorry! Is your Adobe the most recent version? That would be my only guess.

      No one else has commented or emailed to say there was an issue. I’m sorry I can’t be of more help! :(

  48. How do i download it?

  49. This is so great! I have been looking for calender work sheets for my Kinder to add to our lessons. Thanks so much!!

  50. Just wanted to send a huge Thank You!! for these amazing calendar pages. They are exactly what I was looking for and I am so grateful for them!

    • Sarah, I am SO tickled you can use them! I love it when I find just the thing I’ve been searching for!

      Thank you for your comment and stopping by today! :)

  51. I love this! Can’t wait to use it with my 4yo! :)

  52. Great idea. I am going to try using this with my kids. Thank you very much.

  53. Hi, Downloaded this and will definitely use the “Today Is..” and “the weather Is..” page with my 4yo twins, but have you thought about doing more generic monthly calendars/number pictures so those of us around the world could use them (i.e. without American holidays/seasons)??? That would be great! (Even a plain option that I could print on colored paper would make me happy. I’m easy to please!)

    • Actually, I hadn’t considered that! I will definitely put that option in next year’s calendar. I just made myself a note so I won’t forget. 😉

      Thanks so much for taking the time to leave feedback. I just love it when readers do that. :)

  54. I just wanted to stop by and say Thank You for this awesome calendar!! My LO is just starting to recognize the days of the week. I think this will be perfect for us to use at home for better learning of days, months & numbers. She is also starting joy school in a couple of weeks. This will be good for her to also mark on the calendar the days she will have classes, so she knows what to expect when. She is a very hands on learner. This calendar will definitely be a hit in out home, So thank you for so generously offering this to mamas like me! You are appreciated =)

  55. Thank you for sharing your wonderful creations. I used your calendar last year with my 3 year old and she loved it. I love how interactive it was for us each day. I look forward to using it again this year. Thank you! Thank you!

  56. Danielle Stone says:

    Will you be updating this for the 2015 – 2016 school year???

  57. Kelly S. says:

    Thanks for this! My 5yo starts homeschool Kindy fall 2015 and I am so excited to use your pages for our calendar and weather board. I am going to use the pages in our Thirty-One Hang-Up home organizer (No, I don’t sell it but thought you might want to know how we will use your pages!) I am so excited to start, and so is the littlest one!

  58. Stephanie says:

    I can’t find a way to download the preschool notebook for personal use. Please help. Thank you.

  59. The calendars looked so neat. I really wanted to download them to use with my children, but I couldn’t get ANY of them to download. And it says they are still free (1 through today and 1 through tomorrow). :( BUT, it looks like a very neat product. Good job!

    • Jean, I haven’t removed the free version on either post yet, so they’re both still free. :) You have to scroll all the way to the bottom and click on the image where it reads ‘Click the image below to download the calendar…’
