Calendar/Circle Time

Calendar is a very important part of the day.  In my first grade class a student leader "teachers" calendar and I guide him or her as needed.

On my Teachers Pay Teachers page, I made a set of blank calendars! They have multiple uses!

The blank calendars can be used as citizenship documentation in which each child colors a square in corresponding to his or her behavior that day (e.g. green, yellow, or red).

They can be used to track weather, teach calendar skills, document how the students are feeling that day.

You can even use them to write down your instructional focus for the week and the daily objectives.

The can be used as a testing schedule or to mark which days your students go to various pull out programs (such as speech or ESL).

They are great for creating your own homework calendars.  These are useful if you have children that need more challenging work or extra reinforcement at home.  If you take the time to make one of these special calendars, you can use it for improving the home/school connection.  You could create summer calendars to the children do not lose what they have learned over the summer.

These calendars can help extend circle time where the children apply what they have learned.
The possibilities are endless!
