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:

How do you teach your students about the months of the year

Thanks for reading! Don't forget to follow me on FacebookInstagram, and Pinterest!


  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.

  5. This is a fantastic idea. Thanks so much for the freebie! I can't wait to do this with my kids.

  8. Hi Lindsey! Is there any way you could add more photos of your model House All Year book? What a unique and fantastic idea. I would love to see more so that I can get ideas to create my own to show the kids! Love your blog!!

  9. Thank you so much for the freebie. This is such a cute idea! I am so excited to print this.

  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.


thanks for the love ♥
