Congratulations! You are going to have the most amazing, “number-sense building” calendar this year! All you need is some painter’s tape to make your calendar grid on your dry-erase board. Begin with the included days of the week labels at the top and tape a 7x6 row grid. I like to print out the date pieces on card stock, stick magnets on the back and store in zip-lock bags. The pieces are larger than a pocket chart calendar, and after you look through the sets, you’ll understand why. There’s a LOT of math goin’ on in these sets and kids need to be able to see the details from their seats.
Included are day and month labels, plus 10 sets of calendar pieces, 1-31:
• apples in ten frames
• base ten blocks
• coins
• dominoes
• finger subitizing
• scattered configurations
• shape sides count
• tally marks
• tallies with coins
• ten frames
(The sets are in separate files within this .zip package for added convenience.)
Before you place a new piece on the calendar each day, ask students to predict what the piece will contain and why they believe this. You will be astounded with how your students’ number-sense math reasoning skills develop throughout the year!
Best Wishes,

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Count forward beginning from a given number within the known sequence (instead of having to begin at 1).
Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities; connect counting to cardinality.
When counting objects, say the number names in the standard order, pairing each object with one and only one number name and each number name with one and only one object.
Compose and decompose numbers from 11 to 19 into ten ones and some further ones, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record each composition or decomposition by a drawing or equation (e.g., 18 = 10 + 8); understand that these numbers are composed of ten ones and one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, or nine ones.
Understand that the last number name said tells the number of objects counted. The number of objects is the same regardless of their arrangement or the order in which they were counted.
