Having a nice calendar printed is a useful way to keep a record of the different appointments and obligations, but it can also be used for many uses in your home education studies.

10 ways to use a calendar to print

  1. Maintain Assistance - Most states have some requirement to maintain attendance records.  A printable calendar makes record keeping simple. Print your calendar, punch it and add it to the front of your student's folder. At the beginning of each school day, have your child mark the date of that day and everything is ready. You can make the process as simple or detailed as you wish.
  2. Activity log - Does your child have an activity that you need to complete daily or weekly? A printable calendar can help your child keep a record of their responsibilities. From spelling practice to homework, everything is a bit easier when they get to put a sticker on the calendar for each day they finish their homework.
  3. Phases of the Moon - There are lots of fun ideas to help your child learn about the Moon, but being able to keep track of how the moon changes every night is a great way to live the learning life. In your calendar, you can draw how the moon looks every night. Older students can also write the phase in which the moon is.
  4. Data Collection - You can track the time, the color of the shirt they wore each day, the vegetable they had at dinner, or anything they can think of. At the end of the month, they have they match the security of all your data. Depending on the age of your child, there are so many things you can do with your data. Younger students can make a simple chart or graph and older students can find out fractions, percentages, and probabilities based on their data. Math help can be exciting!
  5. Sense of Numbers - If you have a little one who is working numbers, a printable calendar is a great way to add some extra practice. Print the calendar and put it in a clear pocket sleeve. Sometimes a week (or as often as you wish) have them use a dry erase marker to write numbers from 1 to 30 on the calendar. Younger students can make counting marks or dots that represent each number, while older students can practice writing the word number in each box. You can even go one step further and have your child write the numbers in a foreign language they are beginning to learn.
  6. The word of the day - If your student is learning a new word every day, have him write the word and definition on the day of his calendar. They will have a growing list of new words, and it will be seen in the daily words and definitions, making it easier to remember the words.
  7. Hunting number - This simple activity only takes a few minutes a day, but will get your childish thinking. Give a print calendar for each student and then choose a number that is on the calendar. Then give them clues to help find out the number you chose. Your clues may vary depending on your child. If you chose Friday, February 5 in your tracks could include: it is an odd number, before 17, on a Friday. For the elderly, the signs could be more difficult. By the same date that your hint can be: it is a prime number that is a factor of 15.
  8. Ordinal numbers - After each child has a printable calendar, let's give them different colored markers. Then instruct them to dial different ordinal numbers. For example, put a blue X on the first Thursday of each month, or a red heart on the second Tuesday. If you want your child to do the job independently, just write the instructions.
  9. Time elapsed - Time is sometimes a difficult concept for children to understand. You can practice the concept with a printable calendar. Compensate for word problems that have to do with days or weeks. For example, Tom went to the doctor on Wednesday and made an appointment to return six days later. What day did he go back to the doctor? Help your child solve the problem using the calendar as an aid.
  10. Addition and subtraction - Addition and subtraction, this dice game are quick to configure. You need a calendar, a game marker for each person and two different colored dice. Choose a dice to represent addition and one to represent subtraction. They start on the 5th of the month and take turns rolling two dice. Keep moving until it's ten laps or someone gets the last day of the month. The child will be practicing math and have a good time at the same time.
