Digital Daily Calendar Slides
Hey, y'all. This year, we were told we had to keep the walls pretty much bare for cleaning and all the things. And with some of our kiddos going digital and some in the classroom, it looks like calendar time is going to be digital this year.
I did this with my kindergarteners a few years ago and it worked really well. Obviously the Power Point slides I made '09 aren't going to cut it anymore, so I gave them a little facelift and converted them to Google Slides.
We start each calendar time by going over what the date is. We write it in two different ways so that students can see the correlation between the numbers in the numerical date with the full date written out.
Then, we talk about the days of the week. This is a great place to insert a song or two about the order of the days of the week and the months of the year.
We talk about the weather, including what is appropriate to wear with the day's forecast. Then, we graph the weather on the next slide (not pictured) and tally the number of days with each type of weather.
We talk about the number of days in school. We illustrate it with base ten blocks, coins, tally marks, and ten frames. We add markers to our chart to determine if the number of school days is even or odd.
We practice telling time, graphing, fact families, 1 more/1 less, 10 more/10 less, patterns, missing numbers, making ten, and a problem of the day. Of course you don't have to do all of these things each day. These slides are highly editable and easy to rearrange or delete tasks to fit into your scope and sequence and time allotment.
Slides that need counters, tallies, coins, etc. have these pieces included on the side of the slide for ease of usability. Teacher notes are included at the bottom of each slide for prompting or ideas if needed. You can find out more about this set in my TPT store here.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you got some new ideas for your classroom this year. I'm always adding new resources to my store so stop by often or follow me for the latest ideas and lessons. Have a wonderful week and I'll talk to you soon.
