Summer School Student Made Calendar!

Classroom Wall Calendar ~ Before

June Side ~ Before

July Side ~ Before

For Summer School I decided to try a "student made" wall calendar! They went nuts, they were so well behaved and couldn't wait for their turn to fill out the cards! As soon as the calendar was done, they quit asking me how many days did they have to go to Summer Reading Camp! It really gave them some ownership of the new classroom! I loved it!
  • The top row is Mon. Tues. Wed. & Thurs. since we have no school on Friday.
  • The second row is 20, 21, 22 & 23.
  • Then the third row will be a picture each day of the weather. The helper of the day will draw the picture for morning work and then describe the weather with descriptive words.
  • The cards under Boy & Girl is for an attendance contest. If every boy comes to school, they will get one point. Same for the girls. Each Thursday the winners, the boys or the girls, will get $5 extra dollars for the treasure box ~ I am hoping everyone is a tie! Attendance is so important during Summer School, any little bribe will help! :) 
Stay tuned for the after photos!

  1. I love the idea! I'm teaching two weeks of summer school (not long at all) and both weeks we are teaching only a half day! I love to use this idea!!

  2. Take it! Enjoy! I had them line up and I called it a "Disney" ride. They got a card, wrote what I told them to on the card & then got at the end of the line for a chance to get another card! They loved it and were so well behaved!
