How to Use the November Calendar with Kids
My kids are always thrilled when I give them their blank calendars to fill in at the start of each month. They enjoy filling in the dates and brainstorming what they should add to their calendar.
It gives them a sense of ownership over their time, and encourages them to take initiative and be proactive in their planning. My own children love being able to see their schedule for the entire month and I can tell it helps them learn the value of being prepared.
The calendar section of the printable is designed to be both practical and fun.
Simply download and print the calendar. Then, introduce the calendar to your kid and discuss the number of day in the month. Each day of the month has its own space for you or your child to write down playdates, appointments, special days, and more.
Let them plan their activities, appointments, and assignments, ect on their own. By doing so, you will allow them to have a sense of accountability and responsibility while enjoying the process.
Another idea is to encourage kids to decorate the calendar with stickers or markers, turning it into a colorful display for their room or play area
