Once we have some classroom discussion out of the way, we move on to calendar.
This year I would love to start a daily calendar journal. Maggie from Maggie's Kinder Corner Blog has a cute one:
She has a cute sample you can check out here
Jeannie from Kindergarten Lifestyle has a great binder set:
I try to get my class moving in the morning as much as I can so they are ready to sit and listen! (but you know 5 year old children can't sit very long - so we NEVER sit for very long - that's why I have a lot of music and dancing in my classroom! I have some other favorite musicians that I will blog about another day - they are wonderful to get kids moving and grooving!)
After we sing our songs, we change out the numbers in our pocket chart and change out our today, tomorrow and yesterday cards. I LOVE my pocket chart!
Now, what do you fill those pockets with?
I love to use patterns on my calendar cards to help my little Kinders learn patterns, shapes, colors.
