Create a Calendar

We have a discussion about what the second grade class has for "specials" each day of the week: gym, art, computers, library, music, Spanish. We list on the projector what goes with each day.

I demonstrate how to open the Idea Machine template: My Week. I use the ABC Text tool to make the entries for the proper days with the correct spelling. I also remind them how to highlight the text and change its size. Before they start to work, I let them know that they can add Sunday above Monday and Saturday after Friday if they wish.

I ask them what types of activities they do after school such as gymnastics, piano, karate, and so on. I write those words on the Kid Pix page as well. This way, they have the ability to look at the projector for spelling help as needed.
