I know that 4th is to old for calendar math,but do you do a math board? We will be using Saxon math. I plan on doing Daily Data,but wasn't sure what else or if there would be anything else. Thanks!!

Calendar Math

I actually don't think fourth grade is too old for calendar math. I plan on doing a variation of calendar math with my students this upcoming school year. I was able to find some ideas on PT to help me come up with this. Check out the following attachment from a teacher who explains how she uses Calendar Math with her 4th grade students.

My Idea...
Old 06-28-2011, 11:48 AM
 
Clip to ScrapBook #4

I'm actually thinking of probably doing a variation of what I attached above but also focus on:

Number of the Day (NOD)
Word of the Day (WOD)

Fraction of the Day (FOD)
Decimal of the Day (DOD)
Percent of the Day (POD)

The FOD, DOD, and POD will all be related to the same number. I will get the number from the day of the school year over 100. So the first day of school, for example, will be:

FOD: 1/100
DOD: 0.01
POD: 1%

The number of the day (NOD) will come from the date using the number day on the calendar or the month, number of day, and year together (so August 22, 2011 would be 82,211 for instance or if you want a bigger number it could be 8,222,011).

The word of the day (WOD) is related to the math lesson we are learning that day. Students will write the word, guess the meaning, and then write the correct meaning with an example (if applicable).

I hope this has helped in some way.

Mariely, great ideas! Fractions and percents are sometimes hard concepts to grasp, so your ideas are perfect! Is there any way to send your links in another format besides docx? I can never pull that format up and I would love to see your forms...thanks!

Ahhh....I hear "Calendar math" and I come running Calendar Math is THE most useful and productive part of my math instruction. Here are some links to past discussions about it.

for all the great calendar resources. I used to do Calendar Math in primary and when I taught Saxon. I am now taking a class on Guided Math and they talk an awful lot about Calendar Math and I was needing ideas for the fourth grade level. Thanks again

Thanks for some great ideas! I wanted to incorporate a calendar but didn't quite know how to do it for fourth grade. This would be perfect work for the morning and a good start to our day as part of our morning routine. Thanks again!

Question people? I slated to have atleast 35 kids in the fall. I ran a calendar in 3rd with about 25 kids. We sat on the rug and did it togethers. VERY successful. How do you do calendar with 35 kids? I don't think they wanna sit on the rug and plus too many. I'm thinking overhead or projector??

Ideas????

I had 36 kids this year. We sat on the rug to go over calendar daily.

Some of the upper grade teachers use the overhead projector instead, I just prefer the rug.

The children do get so much out of it. I use a lot of the skills mentioned above. It not only gets students prepared for future concepts like fractions and decimals, but it is a great way to review concepts on a daily basis (like place value) so the children won't forget before state testing.

I have all of the necessary information that the students need to complete the daily calendar math on the board. My students do it for morning work. This way students have it finished before we go over it. I had my student sheet blown up to poster size--I put the answers on that as we check.

Using a smartboard would be effective too.

I am impressed how everyone creates forms such as the Calendar Math Student Form. Being technology challenged, could anyone explain steps tocreating such forms with the boxes for different questions and so forth. My technology challenged self is thankful for any suggestions. I use a PC computer.

I create my forms (similar to those StephR has) in Microsoft Word. I simply create a TABLE and then manipulate the cells to how I want them to be. First think of how many columns you'll need and then think about the rows more or less. Word allows you to merge cells and change the size of the width in each cell too. Then you are able to add your content whether it is text, pictures, or objects (shapes).

I hope this has helped. If you still have any questions, post them away! Best of luck to you!

When I made my form, I just made a whole bunch of text boxes and put them next to each other. That way I could make the boxes as big (or little) as I wanted.

There are so many ways to do things nowadays...yay for computers!

My classroom is too small for me to have an area for the students to sit on the ground. Does anyone know of a smartboard template that has already been created to use with calendar math? I checked the Smart Exchange website and they were all geared toward kindergarten and 1st grade.

There is a teacher here on PT who has created smartboard calendar files and shared them. If you search "smartboard calendar" it should come up. (sorry I can't be more helpful on that. I don't have a smartboard, so I don't have the link readily available)

Check out: http://www.thewrightroom.com/

In her FREEBIES section. She has created a calendar math file for each month in the school year free to download. You will have to unzip the files and have Smart Notebook in your computer to view them. This is one place to start and see if it would work for you.

So now my brain is stirring and thinking here. Can I ask how long this takes each morning?
It seems like there's never time to get everything in that we need! Last year I did morning work with a mixture of punctuation, capitalization, grammar, math, and analogies. I think the calendar math is great to review and really internalize those concepts.

I have been looking at several templates to incoroporate this as our morning work. You mentioned adding on WOD and FOD, are you including those now, or as the kids have learned the routine of doing it. Do you happen to have the template of what you came up with so far. I was working on one, but having trouble moving items around to provide enough space for them to write on. I am assuming you front back and they work on it daily. Do they do any of it in thier journals, or only the worksheets? Sorry for so many questions, tryign to get a good feel if it is going to work for me or not.

Thanks
