This calendar pieces printable includes shapes in a variety of colors.

I didn’t want to just drop shapes, and not review the names or characteristics for a while. I thought this would be a great way for us to quickly review daily.

I love calendar pieces for this. In less than 5 minutes I can review a concept, discuss patterns, and possibly teach multiples or skip counting.

These shapes have an aa, bb, and cc pattern. The a’s are 3D shapes, the b’s are quadrilaterals, and the c’s are polygons that are not quadrilaterals.

The color of the calendar pieces follows an a, b, c, and d pattern. Finally, my favorite part, the dates have different colors so we can discuss multiples.

Multiples of 3 are blue, and multiples of 4 are red. If the number is a multiple of 3 and 4, then one digit is blue and the other red. I can’t wait to see if my boys can figure out which numbers have two colors!!!

I have to end this post with this picture.

Pocket Chart Calendar Pieces

Our house recently sold, and we moved to a rental while we figure out where we want to be next. Since our goal is to be in this rental for a short amount of time, we have decided to not put stuff on the walls with the hope of getting our deposit back.

I wasn’t sure where to put my pocket chart and then decided my easel would work great. My little girl decided this was a great spot too, just not for the same purpose I had in mind.

She had a blast taking the calendar pieces in and out. Oh well, guess we will have to find a new spot or the pieces may not make it through the month.
