We are on TeachersPayTeachers FB page!

We are so excited! Our Word of the Day Calendar was posted on TeachersPayTeachers Facebook page today!

Each calendar piece has a November word on it. 

This is a sample of the cut and paste student calendar. 

I use these words in a calendar center. My kiddos cut and paste the word of the day on their calendars and then write about the word in a calendar notebook.

Here are a few writing samples of using the words from our November Calendar: These words have helped my students stay on topic:)

They keep their calendars and calendar pieces in a folder. They also keep their Word of the Day books that can be purchased separately in their folders. They highlight the words in the little books. The words in these books can be sung to familiar tunes. Read more about the books by clicking on the picture below.

The kiddos highlight the calendar words in the books. They wanted to highlight journey because it was our October word. I just love that they remember words from last month:) This book is also sung to the tune of "Clementine."

We just created a brand new resource where we combined these November calendar words with our first Team 25 sight words in 5 November poems, fill in the blank/ABC order sheets, fun Thanksgiving activities and teacher guides! 50% off for the first 24 hours! Click on picture below to see more:

This is such great timing too!
I wanted to share the awesome connections that my kiddos have made as they find these words in other places.

After lunch, my students wait in the hall to go to the bathroom, so here they are sitting when this student says:

This word was on November 1, and this little guy, who is also one of my ELL students said, "Look Mrs. Beckner! This is our calendar word today. I just love words Mrs. Beckner-You were right, our words are everywhere!" How cool is that:) 

Well then my other students started pointing out words all through the hall.
This word was from October and the student said. "We had this word on our calendar when we talked about Christopher Columbus."
 This word was from our September Calendar.

 October Calendar

 These words were from our September Calendar and I just love that the kiddos are still remembering them!

 So, as y'all can see I am pretty excited about TPT sharing this calendar because I feel pretty passionate about it! Hope that y'all will try one of our calendars and you will see how excited your students get seeing their words in other places:)

Have a great weekend!!
