How Do YOU Serve?
This calendar set was inspired by Luke 10:1-12, which speaks very clearly about servitude. "The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few." Does this stir you to think about how everyone is called to serve not just the seventy that Christ chose? Did you realize that the seventy represents us! Each person serves the Lord from the place they are at. Every worker, every parent, every person is called to serve our Lord in some unique way.
This game style calendar asks the question, "How do I serve?" every day of the month. Using the daily graphic as a starting point, great little discussions can follow about how each person can serve our Lord through serving each other in their daily occupation. This set can be used year-round with its colorful monthly header as well as the other corresponding decorations. An answer key is also included.
As this tactile calendar reinforces concepts of time for young ones, you can add loads of fun to your learning month. Decorations are provided for all the months during 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.
