This calendar is filled with loads of usual and unusual holidays to take the doldrums out of the everyday classroom routine. Feel free to be creative and find ways to include the unusual days into the learning experiences in your classroom.
Here are some examples:
• Friday January 25th is Opposite Day. This is a great day to work on antonyms or just switch up the schedule so that you have each subject at an opposite time of day.
• Monday September 23rd is Checkers Day. This might be a great day to introduce strategy games.
• November 20th is Universal Children’s Day. Have the children write about the value of children in schools or in families.
