Calendar Math

I've changed up calendar math and started implementing a new journal. While my students started out a little slow, they are getting the hang of it now! And the fact that they get to use a highlighter -OH EM GEE! ha It's the little things with kinders and it makes my heart happy! :)
Students write their name and highlight: the day of the week, month, and year. Then, they write: the date, date in #s, number of days in school, and it's place value. Afterwards, students illustrate the weather. Keep in mind, this is something that has to be done whole group for quite.a.while. My students are just now getting to a place where they can do this independently. This journal is great to pair up with Stephanie's monthly calendars. You can find those {here}.

I love this, but have a question. Does every kid complete one of these pages everyday? I have 32 kids and a very limited abut of copies i can make, just wondering how you do it. I love the idea!

Great share! I just got a promethean board and am thinking I could put that up so the kids could do it up on the board together for awhile before starting to do it on their own. Thank you.

Mrs. Mugurussa....32 kids?!?! Holy cow. There is a special place in heaven for you. I started out (while introducing) by having every child complete a page, daily...but now they are doing it individually and it is in a math workstation. So only 4 kinders are completing a page a day, totally my whole class at the end of the week! Hope that helps!! :)

Love, Love, Love this!! do you happen to have one with the next years on it? 2012-2013. This is so perfect for K. Just enough to keep them thinking, but easy enough for them to eventually complete independently!! Thank YOU!
