Paper calendars will teach children planning
The life of a modern man is subjected to the schedule - work, meetings, events. Scientists have proven that things are done much more quickly if a list of necessary cases for the day is created in advance. The brain better memorizes important events and daily duties if they were planned beforehand. Issues that a person remembers himself and does not transfer to paper can remain unmade, simply because he does not have a constant reminder about them.
Now, in the modern world of information and gadgets, the paper diary became literally an anachronism. It is much more convenient to use programs for planning. Usually they include calendars, schedulers, to-do lists - this list is usually enough to organize business and meetings for yourself and colleagues. However, there are still fans of paper calendars that can be hung on the wall, the planners that always stand on the desktop, and the diaries that are always in your bag. For such people it is important to hold in their hands or have before their eyes a real calendar with notes made with their own hands.
The Internet service www.caleendar.com allows you to select the appropriate printable calendar design for any month and year and print it by downloading it in one of three convenient formats: image, pdf or word document. The calendar grid has a convenient, concise design and enough free space in the cells to make notes by hand, enter important issues and arrange reminders of events and meetings. Such a printed calendar can be put in a diary, attached to a conspicuous position on the wall or simply kept on the table in front of your eyes.
An excellent idea for teaching children to plan is to plan together with them for the upcoming week, month and even year. Print out a few sheets of printable blank calendar for six months or a year ahead, and then together make notes about all the important things, decorate the cells with birthdays and holidays, mark out school days and days off. Such a calendar can be hung in the children's room. Attach the sheets to a stretched rope with clothespins or simply stick them on the wall.
In the process of writing by hand in general, includes more parts of the brain than in the printing process. To rewrite or to make a summary of the necessary information by hand is one of the most effective ways to remember and save it. The physical act of writing by hand puts the information you are recording into the foreground, automatically perceiving it as the most important.
