Want to fit your calendar routine in with morning meeting while still maintaining the new focus as outlined in the CCSS? Well, I think I have it! This routine will take no more than a few minutes, and the "eureka" moment for me was when I thought like my students for a bit. I realized they would handle a framed chunk (a week at a time) better than the entire enchilada (full calendar grid with no separation)! This week-at-a-time view is narrower while still allowing little scholars to grasp the overall concept of how time passes according to the calendar.
Number recognition, counting, and sequencing skills are the main goal when using this quick version of the calendar
journal, so it compliments the CCSS perfectly!
