Calendar + Weather Chart {Free Printable}

I have been having such fun making some resources for Peter to use in his Pre-Prep room. I posted a photo of this calendar and weather chart that I made on Instagram and Twitter, and sparked some interest. So, I have decided to share it here on my blog, for free!
You can access the four-page full-colour PDF file via Google Docs using THIS LINK.
Here’s a preview of what you’ll be downloading:

We laminated the two charts, and cut out the day-names and weather descriptions and laminated them too. Mr. Peter (as his students call him) uses the Calendar and Weather Chart each morning. They sing the ‘Days of the Week song’ to the tune of ‘The Adaams Family’:
There’s Sunday then there’s Monday
There’s Tuesday then there’s Wednesday
There’s Thurday then there’s Friday
And then there’s Saturday
Days of the week (click click)
Days of the week (click click)
Days of the week, days of the week, days of the week (click click)

Once they’ve sung the song, they choose the appropriate day name for today, yesterday and tomorrow, then they look outside and have a chat about the weather and choose the appropriate descriptions for the day and stick them to the charts. It’s a lovely little routing for them, and Pete says they all enjoy it.
I hope you will too!
I’d love to hear how you use it and if your kids like it.
Enjoy!

  1. I can't tell you how long I've been looking for one of these charts. I found one years ago pre-kids but it cost too much money and I couldn't justify it, and now I've got kids I can't find it again!

    Thanks for the fantastic resource!
