September calendar for preschool parents

September calendar for preschool parents

I have been playing around with calendars and came up with this September parent calendar…

I created this calendar to help build bridges between the classroom and home. This is a very basic set of ideas but it is a good place to start off a new school year!

    Great idea. Anything to connect home and school can only benefit the child. Your calendar has easy, doable ideas for busy parents.

    Love it! I like the focus on a specific area. We do something similar, but it’s broken up by learning domains instead.

    I was going to break it up by learning domains – and I still may for the remaining months but for the first month, I decided to focus on getting off to a good start in school:)

    Thank you Scott!

  • Deborah J. Stewart, M.Ed. Posted July 28, 2011 10:02 am

    Microsoft Word:)

    Thanks for sharing this project with us. It really helps me to have this to share with my families / connecting with parents.

    LOVE it – do you make one every month? Would love to share it with my parents! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I LOVE THIS!!! I would love to steal your idea and put it along side with my lesson plans. I’m always trying to think of (or steal, in this case) great school/home connection ideas. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Deborah J. Stewart, M.Ed. Posted July 28, 2011 12:02 pm

    It is my gift to you Jessi:)

  • Deborah J. Stewart, M.Ed. Posted July 28, 2011 12:03 pm

    I will do my very best!

  • Deborah J. Stewart, M.Ed. Posted July 28, 2011 12:03 pm

    Please share it or use it to help you!

    These are all terrific ideas for the parents to start right away “partnering up” in their child’s successful year in preschool. I’ve done something similar in the past, but I really like the calendar format, with weekly goals! I will definitely borrow some of your great suggestions for ways the parents can set a positive school routine of healthy eating and enough sleep the first month. Thanks so much.

    I love your calendar, I like how the ideas are simple suggestions. That could be a starting point for some people. I think some parents just don’t know where to start and they feel intimidated ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Deborah J. Stewart, M.Ed. Posted July 28, 2011 4:20 pm

    Yes they do – communication always helps make things see so much easier or at least less daunting:)

  • Deborah J. Stewart, M.Ed. Posted July 28, 2011 4:21 pm

    Thank you Vicki – I am sure that you can come up with other terrific ideas for a calendar. I will probably “tweak” mine a bit before September:)

  • Holly Posted July 28, 2011 5:31 pm

    Thank you for sharing Chandi:)

  • Deborah J. Stewart, M.Ed. Posted July 28, 2011 11:58 pm

    It would still work then too:)

  • Deborah J. Stewart, M.Ed. Posted July 28, 2011 11:59 pm

    You are welcome Holly!

  • Kristin Rittiman Posted July 29, 2011 3:48 am

    Thank you so much for sharing!! I love this calendar and connecting home and school is so important. Our main goal is the connection, as well. We have a similar calendar for our preschoolers and homework bags for our prekinders. Will post soon. Thanks for always being such an inspiration!!

    Wonderful Deborah! Henry’s starting 3yo preschool this year and I feel like I need some guidance as the parent! There’s so much I have forgotten about ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for remembering the parents too!

  • Holly Posted July 29, 2011 11:15 pm

    I just sent you a blog award! I really love reading your posts! I’ve already gotten some amazing ideas from you that I’m sure to use in my pre-k classroom. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Deborah J. Stewart, M.Ed. Posted July 29, 2011 11:35 pm

    I can’t wait to see yours too!

  • Stephanie Posted August 1, 2011 5:58 pm

    Do you do a calendar like this for every month?

  • Deborah J. Stewart, M.Ed. Posted August 1, 2011 9:52 pm

    I am planning on it! If I can keep myself organized and stay ahead.

  • Laura Posted October 27, 2011 2:22 pm

    My parent’s LOVED this calendar when I sent it home in September! I just finished conferences, and one of the parents asked me if I would be sending another one home for October. ๐Ÿ™‚ I thought you might enjoy the positive feedback!

  • Deborah J. Stewart, M.Ed. Posted October 28, 2011 9:00 am

    Ahhhh, you are a sweetheart for sharing some positive feedback. I had a teacher send me a copy of one she made for October and it was well done! I didn’t get one made for October so I need to get back on the ball!
