I start of each morning with this Calendar Math Wall as a review of daily math skills from the Common Core Standards.
This math wall is for the 1st quarter of kindergarten (August - Early October).
It is an interactive powerpoint that can be used with any interactive white board as a powerpoint file. There are interactive and moveable manipulatives to support kids' understanding of foundational math skills. Watch the preview video to see an upclose look of ALL slides and a quick demonstration of how to use this file.
Read the "notes" section on each slide with details on how to effectively use each slide as well as guiding questions.
This replaced what used to be Calendar Time before Common Core. I spend 20 minutes each morning reviewing targeted Common Core Math Skills. The basic frame for each skill is in this powerpoint. You add your own number of the day/days we've been in school. You can also decide how much time to spend on each slide.
The skills included in this quarter's interactive powerpoint are:
• calendar for July-October: dates can be typed into calendar table and pictures are moveable to create patterns
• counting to 10 on a number line (video brain break link included)
• counting to 20 (video brain break link included)
• building a set 0-10 with 2 options: apples on trees or cookies in jars. 10 frames are also included in both options as well
• skip counting by 10s (video brain break link included)
• days of the week with links to the weekly skills practice once a week on that specific day (video brain break link included)
• Number Talk Mondays: links to 10 individual dot image number talks
• 2D Shape Tuesdays: Identifying circle, triangle, rectangle, square, and hexagon with moveable labels to match shapes. (video brain break link included)
• Watch it Wednesday: subitizing 0-5 with a five frame. 10 quick dot images with links from the main Wednesday page.
• 3D Thursday: Identifying sphere, cube, cylinder and cone with labels that can be moved to match shapes (video brain break link included)
The last 4 skills are only addressed once a week on a specific day of the week.
I also use this as a math technology station or center. Students work with partners and "reteach" the skills we worked on that morning. I give each partner a different "number of the day" to differentiate skills based on the needs of my students.
