This is the first three pages of calendar work that we do together during the first 30 days of school. It is done in a group format and we use the date that we find on the calendar during our calendar meeting. The students sit on the carpet meeting spot,with their pencils ,lapboard and assignment ,look at the calendar and chat together about what today's number is and how to find it on the posted number line. We have a discussion,everyone writes and we all work together on our morning number talk. These Number of the Day pages change as the school year progresses.
