Daily Reflection Calendars for Preschool


I scored some great freebies at the NAEYC Annual Conference, so of course, I have to do something cute with them! I have wanted to turn my daily calendar routine into an opportunity for reflection for quite some time, and I think I finally found a way to do it.


This daily tear off calendar (a freebie from Lakeshore Learning Materials) has lines so that you can write on each page. I tore the calendar into sections (grouped by month), punched a hole in the pages with myWe R Memory Keepers Crop-A-Dile II Big Bite Punch, and put each month on a binder ring.  I plan to ask my students to help me decide on one thing that happened each day (whatever seems most memorable to them) to write on the calendar page.  I'm going to leave the finished pages out for families to see, and so that my students can re-read what we've written down.



I love that this makes calendar meaningful because we are literally filling our days and months with important events.  I also enjoy this activity as a great routine for wrapping up our day.

My calendar was a freebie, but it's the perfect time of year to pick up a daily desk calendar in any store if you want to try it out for yourself (I also found this really cute one on Amazon:Today is Going to be a Great Day 2015 Daily Desk Boxed Calendar)
