DECEMBER LEARNING BINDER
These December Learning Binder pages are perfect to use with preschool or pre-k in the month of December.
They include no-prep activities that are meant to be a “brain warm-up” & encourage your little one to practice academic skills in a fun way!
Get the Yearlong Learning Binder BUNDLE with ALL of my monthly learning binders and save over 20% (which means you get 3 months for FREE!)
I place these pages in a 3-ring binder & have my preschoolers use a dry-erase marker so they can be reused all month long.
This activity pack comes with 10 activities. The first 6 activities are meant to be used each day during Circle Time, Morning Meeting, or Morning Basket:
- Reading Challenge
- Poem of the Month
- Name Practice (editable)
- Calendar (editable)
*Check out THIS video to see my full Circle Time routine, including the songs I sing & my advice for structuring Circle Time.
The last 4 activities are no-prep printables you can use anytime during the month. There are 2 literacy and 2 math printables.
*Read more about these Learning Binders & why I created them in THIS blog post.
Binder Cover: This binder cover is editable. You can type your little one’s name, or you can have them write their own name. I place this cover inside the plastic sleeve of the front of our 3-ring binder, and then I insert the rest of the pages into the binder.
Reading Challenge: Color in one picture for each book you read in December.
Poem of the Month: I’m a Little Snowman: Recite the poem together each day. There is also a link to watch a video of me saying the poem with hand motions. My preschoolers always remember the poem more easily when they have motions to go along with it.
Name Practice: This page is editable. Just type your little one’s name in the lavender-colored boxes. When you print, the boxes won’t appear. Have your little one spell, trace, build, and write their name each day. Put this inside a plastic sheet protector or laminate it so your little one can use the same page for the whole month.
Calendar: This calendar is editable. You can type in the year at the top. Then type in the numbers for the month in the lavender-colored boxes. That way, you can use this calendar year after year! Your little one can trace the numbers on the calendar and talk about what today is.
Weather: Print, cut, and laminate (if possible) the big weather cards. Each day, ask your little one to share the weather and find the corresponding card. Then have them color in a bar on their bar graph.
Feelings: Print, cut, and laminate (if possible) the big feelings cards. Each day, ask your little one to share how they’re feeling and find the corresponding card. Then have them add a tally mark to their chart.
Color Scavenger Hunt: Your little one will look for items all around the room that are red, blue, green, and yellow. They’ll also practice reading and writing these color words.
Mitten Match: Your little one will match the uppercase and lowercase letters together and practice letter names & sounds.
Count the Marshmallows: Your little one will count the number of marshmallows in each mug of hot cocoa. Then they’ll mark off the correct answer with a small manipulative (such as a mini marshmallow or gem).
Less Than 5, More Than 5: Your little one will be introduced to a number line with this activity. They’ll spin the spinner and say if the number is less than 5 or more than 5. Then they’ll build the number and write it on the correct side of the chart.
Black & White Copies of Each Page: I’ve included black & white copies of each page.
Please see the pictures in the preview above for more info!
