Our unit is designed for young children to grasp the concept of the months of the year and the days of the week, and to ultimately take part in daily journal entries for developing creative thought and for planning. A lively rebus chant introduces the month. The monthly format gives a visual plan of the events that are to take place in the classroom or school for that month. The squares are large enough for the children to add their own entries. The journal pages have lines for written entries and a space to draw. Also included are two big book stories designed to help students learn about the months of the year, their special occasions, and the days of the week. This Primary Studies lesson provides a teacher and student section with reading passages, activities, word search, blank calendar, and big books to create a well-rounded lesson plan.
