A lot has changed in our homeschool since I created our morning time board for my first preschoolers several years ago. I have since added quite a few more students and no longer have a dedicated school room. We have also moved to morning time menus, which are compact and easier to use than my morning time binder. I want to make a morning time menu for my preschoolers, so I started working on some printable aimed more toward their age. The first printable I created were these preschool calendar pages.
Preschool Calendar Pages
I love practicing the calendar with my littles. I have a little song that we sing for the days of the week and the months of the year. While printing actual calendars and marking off the days is great, I’d also like to use another visual representation for the calendar.
These interactive preschool calendar pages allow children to circle the day of the week, write the date (parents can demonstrate on another piece of paper or white board) circle the weather, circle the date, and circle their feelings. All of these important topics are on one small page, which can still lead to big conversations when done with a parent or teacher.
Preschool Morning Work Worksheets
While I’m not a huge fan of worksheets, I do believe that seeing things written repeatedly will help children learn to read and spell. If you’re working with a group of preschoolers, each child could fill out one of these sheets once per day, or to save money on paper and ink, only print one sheet monthly and use a dry erase pocket, or a morning time menu with dry erase markers.
What to include in preschool morning time?
Morning time is fun for all ages, but it can be really fun for preschoolers. While you can of course discuss weather, the date, and feelings, you can also read books, sing songs, and learn poetry. I have written about some of my favorite morning basket ideas for preschool in the past.
