Calendar & Morning Meetings...Starting MY DAY right!



I'm NOT sure WHO needs it more..
ME?   or my students?  

Coffee?
Restroom Time?
RECESS????

NO!

CALENDAR  TIME!

I Love Calendar Time.
I Love reading through the MONTH.
What's happening THIS week
Next Week.
All month!

It keeps my "getting older" brain...
FOCUSED!

It helps my kiddos stay on top of events for this week and this month.

I am linking up with 
for

MOTIVATIONAL   MONDAY!

This week we are discussing:

CALENDAR TIME
and
MORNING  MEETINGS!


classroom calendar

My calendar is next to my focus board.
This is where we begin our morning meeting.
After vocabulary discussions, calendar,
 days of the week ,months of the year, HFW cards..
I get to do a READ  ALOUD!
Working on reading strategies!
All of this in about 15-20 minutes!
Whew!


My calendar is in PLACE VALUE numbers!
I got it HERE.
LOVE THEM TOO!

I try to "release" the CALENDAR instruction to my students as the year progresses.
By the end of the yer, THEY lead the calendar time.
But , I still get to do the READ ALOUD!
I LOVE IT!

Just a quick shout out to

I LOVE MINE! 

I do MATH Calendar after lunch.
Math wall, focus wall, math calendar wall

We go back to number of days in school, place value, etc.
This begins my REVIEW of math concepts BEFORE we begin anything new!
We count to 120 by 5's & 10's ..2's to 50 at the end of the year.

This is my FAVORITE!
monkey math, first grade math


It ALL begins with Calendar TIME.

Others use their SMARTBOARD for Calendar.

  1. I love doing calendar with our kindergarten students. We get to practice number sense every morning, and I do beginning sounds with the months, days, seasons. At the beginning of the year, students need a bit of guidance but by mid-way through, they are able to do it on their own and it's great to see them do it! We also do a weekly poem that we learn as a class, and then send on home to families on Friday so that they can share it. We sing it every morning, and I love hearing their singing voices in the morning!
