Handprint Calendars

O.K...I know it's been a while since I posted anything that has to do with anything about teaching!!!! I'm REALLY trying to get somethings accomplished...but, it's just not working out as well as I'd hoped! With a 5-year-old, a 3-year-old and a newborn there's just no time for much of anything!!;)
However, I did manage to get one thing on my list finished:) Are you thinking Christmas yet?!?! You need to be if you do this project with your class! Every year my students and I make handprint calendars for their X-Mas presents to give to their parents. I just LOVE these things!! They make such an adorable gift and I feel like they are something that many parents will treasure forever.
This year, I'm dumping this HUGE project off on my sub:) I warned her that this is a very big job-but she insisted on doing it...she's awesome!!;) So, I decided that I would cutesy up my file this year and I have posted it on TPT!

 The packet includes all of the monthly 2013 calendars for Jan-Dec. (I will be updating the file with new calendars that you can use throughout the years.) It includes directions and pictures on how to paint the handprint for each month. There are also poems to match the handprint for each month. For the cover of the calendar, I have included a cute handprint poem that explains about the calendar, and there is also a handprint poem for the end of the calendar.

Here is an example from one of last year's calendars:

Be sure to stop by my TPT store to check it out!;)
