I carefully evaluated the preschool daily notebook pages found on other sites and then considered the approach I wanted to take. I wound up including more things on my pages, and I have more than one option for the second page so we can mix things up a bit.
The chart of boxes on the bottom is used for number and letter practice, patterning by stamping or cutting and gluing images in the boxes . . . and anything else I can come up with to use them for!
- what season is it
- differentiating: same and different, big and small, left and right . . . & etc.
- beginning clock reading
- words that start with 'today's letter'
and probably several more I decide fit in this place as the year goes on.
This is all part of my main objective in using a Daily Notebook, giving little nuggets of learning each day so repetition over the long term helps solidify the concept. By having a basic page, and making the elements as add-ons, we can mix things up each day keeping it fresh and creative, and also cover each skill/concept as often or as many times as is necessary.
The other page style has the weather chart and the 'in my world' box, but there is only one large square on the page. This is the 'my page' element in our notebook. (Read about 'my page' in this post.)
I'm excited! Really excited about this format and I have lots more to share with you about it.
Now here's a freebie for you. This 'page 2' coordinates with the Early Learner Basic Page in the primary colorway.
I hope you find this useful and if so . . . please leave a comment to tell me about it!
