First Grade Calendar Time

I've been offered a first grade position. I have taught 3rd for 15 years in private school. Then, for the past two years I've taught virtual charter school.

How do you do calendar time in first grade? Do you have a physical calendar, NOTD, etc., or do you do it all on virtual slides? Pros/cons for both ways, please.

Hey, welcome to first grade! You'll love it! I moved from 3rd to 1st 25 years ago and still love it.

I do most things on slides BUT I still do calendar with a pocket chart and tools. I do date, number date (eg. 6/23/22), # of days in school (with base ten blocks) and some type of math problem (usually a word problem with attendance (eg. 18 students - 3 absent = 15 present). We also talk about the schedule of the day, etc.

This board is kind of slow, so if you don't get a timely response, try posting your questions on the Busyboard.

I varied mine, depending on my allotted math time. For the most part, I:

-review the date using the physical calendar, asked a question or 2 (what will the date be in one week? What month comes next?)

-show number if the school year in coins and with straws in place value box. Trade coins when able (we wiggled our fingers and said, “I feel an exchange coming on!” For multiples of ten we bundled the ten (“There’s too many, they can’t stay! Bundle them up and move them away!”) Then we’d do the bundle dance. Move arms in a “wheels on the bus motion, chanting, “Bundle bundle, bundle! Bundle bundle bundle! Todays a bundle day! hurray!”

- I would always ask if the number of the school year was odd or even, and why. Also, when adding the straw, we’d go over the combinations of each single digit number.

- we’d review our schedule for the day. Then on to the lesson of the day.
