This was the center and right side of our calender set up. The left side only changes with the season and weather, so I didn't include it in the picture for size sake.
Action- clap (printed from Homeschool Share)
Country- China (printed from National Geographic)
Sign Language- C (Not sure where I got mine. You can print the same thing at ABC Teach)
Animal- caterpillar (printed from the Animal ABCs at 1+1+1=1)
Words that start with C- cat, car, crow, computer, camel, coat, carrot, crocodile, circle (Printed from Raising Rock Star Preschoolers at 1+1+1=1)

Bottom middle and bottom right- paid for as part of our We Choose Virtues curriculum
We read books about cookies, caterpillars, cats, and cows, then some miscellaneous books as well. The only ones from the above picture that we read more than once were Cookiebot, the Amelia Bedilia book, The Cabin (this surprised me because it is a pretty boring phonics book), and The Cow Who Clucked. Bam Bam loooooved The Cow Who Clucked. Books we own that I didn't remember to photograph- The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Chicka Chicka Boom Boom.
We are renewing these books as often as they will let us. We own the very taped and ratty looking Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site. I am pretty sure we will own most of the others after Boogie's birthday and Christmas. I recommend all of these if you have boys who love trucks.
I try to put activities that focus on our letter of the week all around the kitchen. Here was our fridge for C week.
I made the 3-part cards and cannot share them because I copied and pasted clipart that isn't mine. The flashcards on top of our pocket chart (Target dollar spot) are from a fabulous and free mommy-made curriculum called "Zoomin Movin Alphabet" over at Royal Baloo and Logi-Bear too.
Since c is for colors, I put these dollar store window clings on the dishwasher.
Top left- math/numbers- clothespin counting and clipping printed from Tips from a Typical Mom.
Top right- fine motor and creativity- construction reusable stickers from the Melissa and Doug vehicles set.
Middle left- literacy/whole alphabet and sensory- corn sensory bin with 26 wooden letter beads.
Middle right- math/logic- colored cars for patterning. There are letters on some of the cars, too, so there was some literacy work there.
Bottom left- sensory and creativity- oatmeal sensory bin with construction vehicles.
Bottom right- literacy/letter of the week- cork board Cs. Boogie put the upper or lowercase letter on the cork board, stuck the push pins in the letter, then used rubber bands to connect the push pins and make the letter. Bam Bam got the geoboard to play with during this time.
May be linking up with some of these great parties.
