Calendars and schedules are such an integral part of adult life, but understanding concepts like days of the week, months of the year and the seasons can be difficult for young children. Without a strong understanding of how the calendar works, it can be tough for a preschooler to understand concepts like exactly how long daddy will be away on a business trip or when his class is visiting the zoo.
Your kids will learn calendar skills at preschool or kindergarten, but you can give them a head start with the “My Week” calendar from 2fishkids. Stick this reusable magnetic calendar on the fridge door, and help your child record events using the included activity magnets or dry-erase marker.
“My Week” introduces concepts like the days of the week as well as understanding of past, present and future through special yesterday, today and tomorrow magnets. Your child can mark the calendar with special magnets showing the season, the daily weather, activities like school, playgroups, swim lessons, music lessons, going to church/temple and special events like birthdays, Halloween and Mother’s Days.
“My Week” was developed by two moms, and it is a useful tool for any parent who needs to explain calendar concepts (e.g. “Grandmom is visiting us on Tuesday” or “We’re going to the zoo on Friday”) to children. You can buy the “My Week” calendar by 2fishkids online for $19.99.
