June’s Making the Days Count Activity Calendar

I wonder what it would be like to live in a world where it was always June.

–  L. M. Montgomery

Here we are almost to June!  The halfway point of the year, and the official beginning of summer here in the United States. It’s a great month to make the days count!  Enjoy this month’s calendar, and find even more ideas on our June Calendar Pinterest Board!

And here’s a little extra this month–something for you to use when you talk about the summer solstice. You’ll find more great summertime poems in Robert Louis Stevenson’s A Child’s Garden of Verses. (Get a FREE copy for your eReader.)

In winter I get up at night
And dress by yellow candle-light.
In summer quite the other way,
I have to go to bed by day.
I have to go to bed and see
The birds still hopping on the tree,
Or hear the grown-up people’s feet
Still going past me in the street.
And does it not seem hard to you,
When all the sky is clear and blue,
And I should like so much to play,
To have to go to bed by day?

 Robert Louis Stevenson, Bed in Summer
