My students have benefited so much from having calendar books to help guide us through calendar. My students get a chance to be completely involved in what I am doing in calendar because they keep track in their own books. I give my students a chance to complete their page before we get started, and then we review together, and they fix any mistakes they may have made. Since I started using these calendar books, I have seen such an increase in participation during this time. I teach and review a lot of skills using calendar, so it is exciting to me to see my students participating (and getting the right answers!) Grab a free copy of my May Calendar Book from Google Docs.
