Calendars

Quantifying time is a very abstract concept -- one that requires cognitive abilities that children develop during the elementary years.  For this reason, the YCP teachers use their class calendars to provide the children with concrete symbols that facilitate their understanding of the recent past and near future.

The calendar for the morning class focuses on one week at a time.  The afternoon class calendar is a monthly one.  Teachers use photographs, real objects, and realistic symbols to serve as references for daily events.  Although names of the days of the week and months are reinforced, the support of conceptual understanding is the primary focus.
