Calendar Bulletin Board Sets for Daycares and Schools. Calendar bulletin board sets are a great way for teachers to decorate their classrooms and introduce learning materials at the same time. The Brookline K-8 Math Department publishes a summer math calendar each year for students entering grades 1-5. The directions are available on the download. There is also an alternate summer math calendar, in case you want to fill in your own math ideas and activities. This includes games you played, on or offline, and activities.

### Math Calendargr. 11

 How do you have your meeting area set up? What exactly do you do during your calendar time? Do you have the kids keep a weather graph individually? These comes from a Teachers Net mailring. To learn more about the mailring click here!

Here are two pics of my calendar set-up for grade 2.

After Lunch/Recess the students would join me in front of the calendar. I always started out by reading a story. Then we would do a special person activity.

After that was finished we would start calendar activities. (I keep track of the activities below to ensure that every student gets a turn on each area.) NOTE: all student participate by clapping at certain times, showing thumbs up/thumbs down at certain times, and answering questions.

First I would pick a student to come to the front, state the date and write it on the dry erase board. 'Today is September 1, 2002.' Then that person would ask two calendar question - they called on students to answer. Examples might include;
'How many days till Saturday?'
'How many months are there in a year?'
'What day was it three days ago?'
'What is today's date plus yesterdays date?'
'How many days in a year?'
The students get pretty creative with this and come up with some great questions.

Then, I pick another student to come up and fill in our absent/present chart. They state how many students are in our class, how many students are absent, & how many are present. Then they fill in a greater than less than sign between the words absent and present. Then they read the statement. 'Absent is greater than present.' (The students on the floor are giving thumbs ups and thumbs down for verbal answers.)

After that, another student comes up; we do a similar thing with lunch count.
How many students ordered lunch A?
How many ordered lunch B
What is A + B?
What is the total of A+B - the number of students that brought lunch?

Next, another student is called up; they tell us how many days we have been in school. They write it on the chart and show the smallest amount of change that represents the total number of days in school.
20 days in school = 2 dimes

This is the class’s favorite part. One student comes up to write on the white board. They write the numeral for the number of days we have been in school. Let's say 10. Then they get to call on students to give them another way to write the number 10.
The student they call on tells them how to do it and what to write. The student writing decides if the student is correct with their response. Some might include.
Write the Roman numeral. It is an X
5+5=10
Ten Tally Mark. You need to make two groups of five.
1000 - 990 = 10
Write the word. It is spelled, T-E-N
Draw ten balls.
A dozen + 2.
The answers go on and on. The students try really hard to come up with something original during the year. If they do, they get a round of applause from their classmates!

Last but not least, I tie it into our lesson by showing a math message and discussing it. The program used is Everyday Math.

Note: this is basically what we do in Sept. - Nov. The difficulty increases and the activities change as the students grow.

After the Math Message, we stand up do a few stretches. Sometimes we play Simon Says! Then we start the Math Lesson! The students are sitting at Calendar for about 30 min. I feel they need to get up and around after that 30 min. to be ready for the Math lesson! The Math lesson is usually 30-45 min.

 Posted by cj1st on 6/05/02 For the first part, yes, we come back to a corner area with Awall calendar, weather etc. The helper for the day puts up the number (velcro) and tells us the date, month, year and day. Also decides the weather. Puts up a link in the ones column (moves over at ten) and puts up the coin for the day. I have magnetic coins, use a magnet sheet from a magnetic word game, but any small flat metal piece will work. We count the days, by twos, fives etc. I keep track on a sentence strip with a marker. So, we keep track of the days three ways, tally strip, tens/ones links, and money. Then the students go back to their seats to do their own calendar and weather chart, back to back on light tag board. They keep these in their daily folders. It only takes 10 minutes tops.

 KristalI teach 2nd grade and here are the things I do with my class during our calendar time: days of the week, months of the year, long date and short date, what day comes before/after, what was the date yesterday/what will it be tomorrow, calendar problem of the day (ie If I am going on a trip and I leave May 1 and return the following Tuesday, what day/date will I return?) We also do temperature, a graph of the weather, number of days we've been at school/number of days left, a pattern of the day, a clock activity, tally marks, odd and even numbers. I don't do every activity every day. I also start off slow and add activities throughout the year. Somethings I have quit doing now that we are so late in the school year because my kids know it so well (days of the week, months, etc.) I have recently started doing measurements using learning links and the kids love it. I have a star of the day who gets to help me out. I recently had my students write what the best part of the day was for them. Most of them wrote about our calendar time. Hope this helps!
 CALENDAR TIME-We begin our Math class each day using the calendar. We tell time by using the day, month, and year, as well as using our class schedule to tell time to the hour, half-hour, five-minute mark, and elapsed time between classes. We use our money board to count money. We also work on measuring, number patterns, 'problem of the day', and the weather graph.
 Posted by PBencher on 6/06/02 Also, I've seen many calendars that use patterning - The numbers are on die cuts of various colors. The pattern may start with 'red, red, yellow' but by the end of the year have much more complex patterns to figure out. One teacher I subbed for had a cup with popsicle sticks in it. Each stick had a child's name on it. The calendar person started, then chose a stick for the next person to help, then the second person chose another stick... and so on. This teacher had about 8 mini jobs in calendar - Day of the month Yesterday, today and tomorrow Tally marks Bundles of straws for sets of 10s and 100 Money on velcro Numerals in writing (22nd and 'twenty-second') Giant month poem with a pointer Written date, ie Wednesday May 22, 2002 And short date i.e. 5/22/02 The whole projected was almost self-directed by May! I simply chose one 'helper-outer' so that there wasn't a huge roar of correcting when someone spelled something wrong. The 'helper-outer' could whisper hints to the person at the board.

 I have 3 clear plastic envelopes and we keep track of the number of days using pennies. For every day put a penny in the envelope. When you reach 5 pennies then you exchange the 5 pennies for a nickel. Then when you reach 2 nickels, exchange it for a dime. You can go as far as a dollar if you want. The kids really know their money at the end of the year.Debby
