1. Monthly planning sessions
At the start of each month, dedicate a class session to fill in important dates such as tests, holidays, and school events. This practice introduces the concept of foresight and organization to the students. It encourages them to prepare for upcoming tasks and to look forward to events. This interactive approach also allows children to feel involved in the classroom’s functioning, fostering a sense of belonging and responsibility.
2. Personalised learning
Encourage students to personalize their own calendar with relevant dates, activities, and even doodles. This freedom to customize their calendar boosts creativity and gives them a sense of ownership. It also allows them to express themselves visually, which can be particularly beneficial for visual learners. Additionally, it serves as a reflection of their interests and priorities, making learning more relatable.
3. Classroom birthday tracker
Use the calendar to mark all the students’ birthdays. Assigning a special sticker or colour for birthdays not only makes these days stand out but also adds an element of surprise and excitement. This practice fosters a sense of community within the classroom and makes each student feel special and acknowledged on their birthday.
4. Visual timeline
The calendar can be used to create a visual timeline for ongoing projects or thematic units. This helps students understand the progression of events and anticipate what’s coming next. It provides a clear picture of the project’s timeline, helping them manage their time and tasks effectively. It also allows you to highlight key milestones and celebrate when they’re achieved, boosting morale and motivation.
5. Countdown to special events
Whether it’s a field trip, a school carnival, or the end of the school year, use the calendar to create a visual countdown. This not only builds anticipation and excitement but also serves as a constant reminder of the event. It can help manage expectations and prepare students for the event, whether it involves packing a bag for a field trip or preparing an act for the school carnival.
6. Seasonal changes
Use the calendar to discuss and track changes in weather and seasons. This can be tied to science lessons about Earth’s rotation and revolution. This integration of lessons with the calendar makes learning more practical and understandable. It can spark discussions about climate, geographical locations, and the impact of seasonal changes on various aspects of life.
7. Homework or reading tracker
Assign students to mark due dates for homework or projects on the calendar. This not only promotes responsibility and time management skills but also gives a clear idea of their academic schedule. It can help avoid last-minute rush and stress, ensuring that students work at a steady pace and produce quality work.
8. Attendance tracker
Mark days when a student is absent on the calendar. This can serve as a visual tool to discuss the importance of regular school attendance with students and parents. It can highlight patterns in absenteeism that might need to be addressed and encourages accountability among students.
9. Celebrating holidays
Use the calendar to explore and celebrate different cultural and national holidays. This can be a great conversation starter about diversity and inclusion. It can lead to enriching discussions about different cultures, traditions, and histories, promoting a sense of respect and curiosity about different ways of life.
