It’s time for another kindergarten smorgasboard classroom video!!!!!!
Recently, we’ve made some changes to our calendar routine.
We removed the counting to the date part of the routine at the beginning. And since data (look at us…adjusting our instruction based on data!!! We so good…) shows that the ‘staches need some work on 1 more and 1 less, we tweaked greater than and less than. Now, we give the number that is 1 more (greater) and 1 less (less than).
We also rearranged the order of the activities to a more logical sense. Now it’s date, digital date, days of the week. THEN number sense stuff. Number of the day, ten frame, even and odd, tally marks, 1 more, 1 less, and counting on and counting back. We now end with our days in school and place value!
Calendar takes about 10 minutes and meets so many standards: KCC1 KCC2 KCC3 KCC4 KCC5 KCC6 KCC7 KNBT1
That’s a lot of standards everyday…in just a few minutes!!! BAM! Calendar time ROCKS!!!
In this video, you see our struggle with writing the number 110!!!
You also hear me ask one ‘stache to stay quiet during calendar…this is my friend DogPound…and we can’t let him do all of our work…
You might also hear me remind my student of the day to slow down! Sometimes we get in a bit of a hurry!
I hope you enjoy our latest video! Let me know if you have questions or comments!

That was GREAT Greg! I love the way you use your smart board for calendar! I've never used one before! That is so neat! =)
Great lesson! I love the student engagement!!
Great lesson!!! did you create your smartboard calendar routine or get it from another site?
I love this lesson! If you created this smart board lesson, is it available on Tpt? I thought it was cool up until I saw the part where you could move the place value rods and cubes then I thought it was amazing!! I wish we had a smart board. I'm wondering if I could do something similar with Apple TV.
I really like this lesson. I still do calendar the traditional way, but have thought about doing it on my promethean board next year. I've never worked on a smart board, but they seem so much easier to use than the pro boards. I'm wondering two things: Do you still have a traditional calendar somewhere in the room, and do you make your own template for your smart board? Thank you ~Kelli~
I love the lessons on the Smart Board. Where did you get the pages that you used? Thanks
It is my I Mustache You What The Date Is creation on TPT
These are my I Mustache You what the Date Is creation on TPT
This is available on TPT. It is I Mustache You What The Date Is
I would love to use your TPT product – importing them to smart board files – where did you find the 100's/1's/1's cubes and rods that the kids can manipulate for the place value activity? Thanks!
Do you do your calendar routine in addition to morning meeting? Are they at the same time of the day? I am transitioning to morning meeting this year, and think that doing calendar with it might be too long. Thanks!!
Sure do! Check out my blog post about it, just type calendar routine in the search! 🙂
