Would you love to spend less time prepping homework this school year? Would like families to spend a little time each day having fun and learning together? I have a year worth of books and ideas for you to start the new school year. The printable book based activity calendars are full of book suggestions and fun activities to do as a family.
Who Are the Calendars For?
They are perfect for:
- teachers to send home as monthly homework calendars.
- librarians to pass out to patrons.
- families who want to enjoy great books and do simple themed activities at home.
The set includes 12 calendars (September 2020- August 2021) and 12 resources sheets.
Families can hang the calendar on the refrigerator each month and take the resource sheets to the library to gather the books for the month.

What Is Included with the Resource Pack?
Each week a theme is introduced with a wonderful children’s book. If families can’t find the main title, there are three alternative book ideas each week. Then, there are 5 easy to do activities included with each theme. Activities include literacy, math, art, science,
and character education ideas. Families can do any activities that fit their schedule.
Best of all is that if you use our Preschool Literacy Units you’ll find that the themes in the units match perfectly with the calendars.
The set includes copies in black & white AND color. Book choices include newly released titles, multicultural books, and non-fiction selections. Alternative book selections include three book recommendations. Exciting, right?
