Focus on Creation Any Time of the Year with This Tactile Calendar
The theme is the creation of animals. God created all the animals, and it was good. How well can you identify His creations? This calendar uses black-and-white silhouettes of animals, and asks learners to name each one. There is a different animal for each day of the month. An answer sheet is included for anyone who may need a little identification help. The border graphics are also in black and white and feature Bible passages on Creation as well. One passage speaks on animals, the other on the creation of man.
As it reinforces concepts of time for young ones, you can add loads of fun to your learning month. Decorations are provided for all the months of the year, and each day of the month is represented.
Print out the file and cut apart the pieces on the lines. You can use cardstock for durability or laminate plain paper pieces for longevity. Then arrange and affix your pieces to your prepared poster-board or bulletin board with numbers in the main squares, titles at the top and decals where desired.
Use your personal creativity in setting up this calendar on a bulletin board or create your own template. Start with a plain dime store poster-board marked with a grid of seven columns by six rows, which includes space for the days of the week to be written in. Don't forget to leave a bit of space to put on the border decorations!
Note: Once laminated, you may want to consider affixing velcro to the back of the pieces as well as the poster board to allow for easy removal and to give learners the opportunity to change the theme and assemble the calendar on a monthly basis.
