Calendar Math

One of the ways I like to start our day is by doing Calendar Math.  It is a great way to incorporate so so many different things: spelling, counting coins, days of the week, proper nouns, etc.

I make each student a Calendar Math Booklet that we fill out every day.  They get a new one every month.  We all bring it up to the carpet and fill it out together on the Smart board.  Before you know it they can fill it out without help; little Smarties :-)

By the middle of the year I switch to the harder version and I allow them to fill it out independently before we come to the carpet.  Then we go through it quickly as a class.

Here is a link to download it for free.  I hope you can use it with your class.
