Updated for 2014-2015. This is a calendar journal that I use in my self-contained classroom. It contains minimal writing; my students use a highlighter or crayon to color in the correct answer. This is great for students with limited handwriting skills. It is beneficial for students that are learning days of the week, months of the year, the year, the date, the weather, and days in school with place value.
This is a SmartBoard activity that directly correlates with the 1st Grade Everyday Math 1.9 The Calendar (introduce the calendar as a device for keeping track of the days in a month). This lesson includes activities, games, and vocabulary for the lesson. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
