These templates are designed to accompany the Calendar Math for Upper Grades by Stephanie Moorman (which can be found on the blog http://teachinginroom6.blogspot.com) These templates can be cut out, backed, and laminated so that the students have a visual to look at while the Calendar worksheets are being reviewed. It helps to create a sense of importance and community while reviewing the important mathematical skills.
Pictures of the set up are included in the download.
This download also includes the worksheets that can be found on my blog, as well as an additional 5th grade first semester one (that is NOT available on the blog...only on this purchase) and a 3rd grade sheet (also only available for purchase)
This is a SUPPLEMENT to the program, and should be used in conjunction with the FREE worksheets, which can be found on the blog or the ones for purchase here at my store. An explanation of the procedures is also found on the blog. PLEASE visit my blog for full implementation instructions.
DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT IF YOU HAVE NOT GONE TO MY WEBSITE FOR A FULL EXPLANATION. THERE IS NO EXPLANATION IN THIS PACK.
From Teaching in Room 6
This is intended for classroom use by one teacher.
The odd/even space is large so that you can list all of the REASONS why a number is odd or even (ie: it is odd because the number in the ones place is in the odd group of 1,3,5,7,9 or if you divide by 2 you will get a remainder) When we are going over the odd/even part, it isn't enough for them just to identify if it is odd/even, they must know WHY.

Thank you for the Teacher Appreciation Week Freebie! I am a special education resource teacher, so I know that I'll be starting out using the 4th grade level Calendar Math with my students. The only "script" or routine description I could find here or on your blog was for the 2nd semester of 5th grade. Is there a similar script for the 4th grade calendar math pages?
I haven't typed one up, but it is basically the same. The first things are ALWAYS the same, no matter what grade level I teach (2-5), then it gets a bit different as the skills change. Use the script for 5th grade as a guideline to help with the 4th. It really is all basically the same though! Since people are so interested in Calendar, I will be creating the scripts for the other grade levels in the near future.
I have been a classroom teacher for 15 years, teaching grades 2 through 5. I have spent most of my years in the upper grades, and consider that my expertise. I am Nationally Board Certified, a master teacher, and have my Masters in Education.
