Build and encourage Listening and Speaking Skills (Common Core) through daily Calendar Time activities (Social Studies Common Core). A great way to integrate many Common Core standards for K-2. I use this daily for 1st grade and works beautifully after I model it for the first 9 weeks. Kindergarten would probably need until 2nd Semester and 2nd grade would be able to start the year off with it. Adaptable for any grade level. Please leave suggestions of what I can add to make this better!
