Supplies Used: Cardstock, Clear Laminate, Colored Pencils, Colored Pens, Crayons, Push Pins, Stapler

The teacher will die-cut the materials for student use prior to the lesson.

  1. Cut seven 4" x 12" pieces of cardstock in various colors. Die-cut the seven DC Words, Calendar Days from various colors of cardstock. Adhere a Word to each of the cardstock pieces.
  2. Cut a piece of 7" x 40" clear lamination. Fold the 7" length so the front piece is 3" high and the back is 4" high to create a pocket. The uneven edges make it easier to insert items into the pockets. Adhere this pocket to the bottom of a bulletin board with push pins or staples, creating three pockets for the days of the week (Figure A).
  3. Cut a 12" x 40" piece of cardstock or construction paper.
  4. Computer generate or hand print the words "Yesterday," "Today" and "Tomorrow" on white paper. Trim papers and mat on construction paper in various colors.
  5. Die-cut three figures using the LG Boy #4 and LG Girl #5. Figures may be colored using crayons or colored pens or pencils, or multiple colors of the Boy #4 and Girl #5 may be cut. Leave a skin-toned figure whole and cut other colors to create hair and clothing for the figures.
  6. Drop the Days of the Week into the clear pockets on the bulletin board and adhere the Girls, Boys and the signs above the pockets (see Main Photo).
