This activity is a great way for your students to start their morning. Staple or glue the Monthly Calendar and Weather Data cover and the Calendar Resource page onto the back of a manila folder. The resource page includes a colorful display of the Days of the Week and Months of the Year (with abbreviations), seasons, and weather vocabulary words/ Robust Words. The vocabulary words are paired with a section of words to describe each type of weather which is a great writing tool.
Then insert a calendar and weather graph monthly for your students to collect data on the weather and upcoming events. Each calendar has seasonal images for your students to color. You can fill in the dates each month or have your students complete it on their own, which allows for year after year use.
The Daily Math Problems page is a great addition to this activity.
Post a problem of the day on your interactive board, glue a problem or write a problem onto the worksheet. This is a great way to reinforce rigorous independent problem solving while meeting the Common Core Math standards. Collect these worksheets or make a student packet for the month of daily math problems.
