Editor's Note: There are many reasons why I didn't go into teaching as a career. However, the only real reason I wanted to was so I could decorate a room and have one of those cool calendars on the bulletin board that I could change up every month.

This seems really simple, but you’ll really be amazed at how much your kiddos will start grasping in a short amount of time. If you want you can also add in some extra songs, stories or even silly songs & dances. Fun, educational & time with your kiddos! Win-Win-Win
Here’s a break down if you don’t want to scroll through my paragraphs:

- Say the month & have child repeat.
- Say the date & day of the week and have child repeat.
- Have child put the number of the date on the calendar.
- Sing days of the week song / months of the year.
