Yahoo! The new Daily Calendar Notebooks for Preschool and Kindergarten are here!
::happy dances all around::
This is the 9th year of the Calendar Notebooks here at Mama’s Learning Corner, and I think they continue to improve each and every year. I appreciate all of you who continue to use this notebook year after year with your children!
This year I have a BIG CHANGE to the Calendar Notebooks – they are UNDATED!
Read more of this post to find out what exactly that means for you and your children as you use this Calendar Notebook to start your school day!
Regardless of whether your students are Preschool, Kindergarten, or First grade age or stage, you’ll find plenty for your young ones to work through.
What is Included in the Calendar Notebook?

(Yes, I do get the full multi-colored 12-pack of Expo Dry Erase markers. I let my daughter choose 1 color to use each day. Just changing colors switches things up a bit!)
If you’re familiar with the Calendar Notebook, you’ll notice that I combined the Preschool and the Kindergarten-First Grade versions again this year. I got so many emails from parents and teachers that love the combination, so I’ll keep it in this format from now on.
The combined packet makes it easy to differentiate for your students, whether in a homeschool setting or a traditional classroom.
For the past many years, I have updated the graphics each year, and the fonts and layouts as needed. Usually, I add in several fresh ideas with the extra Daily Learning Pages each year as well.
To be honest, it’s kind of grown into a beast and I needed to streamline it this year. I exhausted most of my clipart and the new clipart available, so I didn’t have much to add in the way of fresh graphics.
So I made the drastic move to make an UNDATED Calendar Notebook and combine the pages from the last three years.
While there are no “new” graphics this year, I think you will be pleased with the OPTIONS that you will have as you pick and choose which sets of shapes or colors or calendars your child will use.
Of course I give you complete details in the first READ ME file like in the past. If you need hand-holding, that is where you will find it! ❤
Here’s what is included in the 160-page printable download:
→ Detailed, comprehensive instructions for how to complete each section, including an assortment of ideas for use.
→ Cover Pages: Choose from multiple different nature scenes – sunshine, grassy area, forest scene with path – suitable for boys and girls
→ Undated Monthly Calendars for July through June: 2 versions – one includes traceable dates and the other includes students writing in the date without a writing prompt; also added Christian versions of April (Easter) and December (Christmas); includes 3 sets
→ Monthly Find the Date Pages for July though June: Students find the day’s date and cross it out on the picture; color or decorate the monthly picture if desired; includes 3 sets
→ ‘Today is…’ Page: Determine the day of the week and tomorrow; includes writing the year and acknowledging the current season
→ ‘Today’s Weather’ and ‘Today I feel…’ Page: Record the day’s weather and students draw a circle around how they feel each day (happy, sad, mad, surprised, sick, etc); includes 2 different emotions/feelings pages from which to choose
As a side note, we frequently 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. ♥

How Do I Set Up the Notebook?
To create your Calendar Notebook, you’ll need the following supplies:
– copy paper – This is currently the best price! I just bought this, which will last us the whole homeschool year. But YIKES that’s still expensive.
– page protectors – I purchased these last year and they held up beautifully.
– 3-ring notebook – You will want the durable notebook, not a cheapy one if you want it to last all year.
– card stock – It’s best to print the weather graphs on card stock since they get so much use; this is the brand that’s most often on sale at Amazon and the one I purchase
You’ll find detailed instructions for setting up the Calendar Notebook in the READ ME FIRST download.
All of the descriptions and how-to’s are laid out clearly so there’s no guess work for you. Just download, print, and place in your notebook!
