The passage of time is a very important issue in our day to day life. From a very young age, children ask when is their birthday, when they are going to visit someone, etc., but “time” is a difficult concept to explain.
Our circular calendar brings the abstract concept of time to children in a simple and visual way. They see how small a day is in that big year. If you mark every present-day with them (e.g with a sticker), they easily see how time is passing, how much it will take until a special date (e.g. birthday) as you can point out such events in advance. Moreover, it helps a lot to explain the meaning of “birthdays”, why we celebrate the new year, why the rhythm of seasons repeats every year…
The Annual Circular Calendar represents one year, including seasons, months, and days. It is a perpetual calendar, so you can use it year after year. The 29th of February is gray to represent a leap year.
The Annual Circular Calendar can be used by children of different ages, whether they can read or not. It is your choice to use the labels or not (yet). The calendar comes with one set of color-coded labels (months and seasons) The same (or similar) colors as those in typical Waldorf and Montessori calendars have been used.
You can choose the language of the labels. If your language is not listed, choose the option “Other languages” and contact us after the purchase to specify the language you prefer. An extra time for the realization has to be calculated.
The Annual Circular Calendar can be used in many ways at school or at home.
