Many schools use these fabric calendars to encourage children to learn the days of the week and the months – in both English and French [and I guess in other languages too]
The problem is, they only give you FIVE YEARS in the set – what do you do when you are coming to the end of the last year? Especially when the academic year starts in September, and you realise that in 4 months time you don’t have a “2015” ready and waiting?
Answer – you find someone [like me] with an izzy-whizzy embroidery machine, and get some more years sewn up. My machine can’t quite match the 2010 I was given as an exemplar- but it does pretty well I think.
If you are reading this blog and you have one of these calendars in your classroom, and need “2015” do email me, and I’ll send you one!
