Weather board

I've been meaning to post about our "weather board" for quite some time (I guess that's obvious from the dates in the pictures!) but it took me a while to gather up a year or so's worth of photos and then somehow I never got around to it.


But I'm determined to clear out my "pending" blog posts so here it is...


We spent quite a lot of time looking at other people's ideas for a weather and calendar board on Pinterest before we settled on the current iteration. 


What's it for, you ask?


-Teaching days of the week (English and French)

-Today's weather (we'd really like to get into trends and graphing but haven't done anything with that yet)

-Progression of time over the week and year

-Planning / anticipating activities (We print our own stickers! At first we used a random calendar, but now we use our family calendar which has the bonus of reminding the kids about who various relatives are and showing birthdays.)

-Changing of liturgical and calendar seasons.

-Place to remind Elizabeth and ourselves our current bible verse and any other stuff we're learning

-Number recognition, fractions (dividing up the month into weeks and tracking whether we are 1/4, 1/2, 3/4 or all the way through for example) and counting by units/tens


Depending on the season, it's played a bigger or smaller role in our morning routine but overall we've been pretty happy with it. The only problem now is that we could really use a second calendar for Matthew's stuff, so we want to figure out how to combine that without duplicating the entire thing...
