Here is a super cute calendar to use for kindergarten. Based on Common Core standards, this is meant to be short. This is a smart notebook set up for a quick morning calendar. The calendar includes:
Days in school
Seperate calendars August through December with number tiles and icons that move around
Letter poems based on the Fountas and Pinnell suggested order for handwriting.
The letter poems can be used to introduce a new letter each week. They are short with simple words in them. Call a student to the board and have them trace the "letter of the week". This helps with letter id as well as practicing writing the letter itself.
