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 4th quarter of kindergarten (March - June). You can purchase the entire year of kindergarten math walls in my discounted BUNDLE.
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. Visit my YouTube channel to see how to effectively use a powerpoint file on your interactive white board.
Each slide has a "notes" section 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 March-June: dates can be typed into calendar table and pictures are moveable to create patterns
*counting to 100 from any number on a number chart (video brain break link included)
*counting and writing numbers to 100 from any number on a blank number chart
*count on within 100 using a number line (video brain break link included)
*count back within 100 using a number line (video brain break link included)
*Show ways to make a teen number (11-19)....ten frames, tens and ones, word form, equation, and tallies
*skip counting by 5s and 10s (video brain break link included)
*classifying and comparing objects (no graph frame for support anymore) with 2 options: clovers/pots of gold or pink/blue flowers
*partners to 10 with a ten frame and manipulatives for support and a place to write the matching equation
*days of the week with links to the weekly skills practice once a week on that specific day (video brain break link included)
*Measurement Mondays: comparing the length or height of two objects and tell which is taller/longer or shorter/smaller
*2D Shape Tuesdays: compose a picture with 2D shapes (triangles, squares, rectangles, circles and hexagons) and tell what shapes were used
*Wallet Wednesday: identify coin front and backs, names, and values of a penny, nickel, dime and quarter
*3D Thursday: sort between 2D and 3D shapes
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.
