My House All Year (Teaching Months)

Please Note: This post includes Amazon Affiliate links.

Hello, Friends! I hope you are all having a good week... thank goodness it is almost Friday! (This teacher needs a WEEKEND!!) Before I head to bed, I wanted to share a writing activity that I started with my students this week. It is a book called My House All Year  and I learned about it from my wonderful cooperating teacher while I was student teaching (Thanks Lynda!! Love ya!). In this book, my students will write a sentence about each month of the year and draw a picture to accompany the sentence. This book will provide my students with writing practice and math practice (time: months of the year and seasons). We will only do one page a day and I am really encouraging my students to do their best, because I am going to give these books to their parents at Parent-Teacher Conferences.

Here is a sample of the My House All Year Book:



(BTW: I have my students draw a tree on each page to show the change in seasons.)


Before I introduced the books to my students I read My House to them. This book has interesting pictures and my students LOVED it. Click the picture below to check it out:

  1. This is great! I'm going to use this in our home school with my 1st and pre-k "students." I love it! We study month in our math everyday, but this is just a great add-on. We also have a song so they can learn all the months in order that we sing a lot too. Thanks for the download!

  2. Love the idea of giving it to parents at teacher conferences. I think I will have the kiddos give it to mine at back to school night. Thank you for sharing.

  4. Sooooo cute!! When I see cute ideas like this I always think 2 things: 1) How can I adapt this for my 5th grade class and 2) Geez, I wish I taught younger grades sometimes. Haha.

  10. Love your house idea. I usually do it with a Tree and call it Our Observational Tree journal; however, I have the same kids this year and need a variation on the same theme. Thanks for your wonderful idea. Do you by chance have a picture of ALL 12 months??? Too bad I can't order the book anymore.
