This Smart notebook file has been converted to Google Slides. Smart Notebook is updated WAY too often for all the "bells and whistles" to continue to work for those districts that are not able to be updated yearly. UPDATE: I am including the original Smartboard file, however, it will not be updated to the current year. You will be able to move the dates around to update your calendar. I do not own smartboard software anymore as our school does not use it.
My students LOVE Calendar Time! This calendar comes in two themes... a white theme and a blue theme. Just choose the color your prefer! Let students show off what they know! Counting days, counting coins, figuring the day before and the day after, checking the weather, counting on a 100s chart. Whether you call this Morning Time, Circle Time, Carpet Time, Meeting Time, this calendar is fun, interactive, and educational. (At this time, I am continuing to add to the calendar. It will also include a clock.)
This download includes a PDF which includes a link to the Google Slides Morning Calendar. You will be asked to save a COPY of the calendar. You'll say yes and POOF! It's yours!
This calendar includes so many Common Core essentials including:
Calendar Skills: placing the numbers in order, discovering patterns, reviewing days of the week, months of the year, filling in Today is ____. Completely interactive.
MORNING MESSAGE is a blank page to write in any important messages for the class.
The HUNDREDS CHART page is great for counting to 100 by 1s, by 2s, 5s, or 10s. You can also find patterns in the numbers and mark them with the circle pieces.
The DICE page has interactive die with either dots or numbers. Roll the die and make up the fact families to match.
The WEATHER GRAPH lets you graph the weather daily. Just slide over the colored rectangle. Now you can compare temperatures. Allow the students to ask questions using the graph. Which has the most? The least? None? What do you predict tomorrow will be?
The ATTENDANCE page lets you spell out PERFECT ATTENDANCE. My school does this and it is a huge incentive! Every time that every student is in attendance cross off a letter. Each time you spell out perfect attendance the class gets a party! It could be popcorn, extra recess, shoes off, a movie, bubbles... you name it! It's your party!
The MONEY page let you set the dollar/cent amount you want the student to show and they pull the money over and put it on the table.
The BASE TEN page is similar to the money page. You set the hundreds/tens/ones and the student pulls over the blocks.
The MONTHS OF THE YEAR page lets you move months around on the screen for students to rearrange in the correct order.
