I just got a job teaching 1st grade at a title I school!! I taught Kinder last year so I was wondering what do you teach during calendar time in 1st grade?

Calendar activities that I do:

Today's date
Number line (write number on adding tape to correspond with how many days of school we've had)
Do same as above except use and display toy coins (i.e. 13th day of school would be: 1 dime and 3 pennies).
Do same as above except use straws as counters and put in correct pockets on calendar bulletin board: hundreds, tens, and ones pockets (reinforece place value concepts).
Today's weather and graph results
What's for lunch?
Who's today's leader, helper(s)?, etc.
Daily news (assembly today, spell. test later this morning, etc.)
Days of the week
Months of the year
Pattern of calendar cutouts (like use green apple, red apple, green apple, red apple for months of Aug. or Sept.; the AB pattern)
Days of the week and months of the year song singing
Who lost a tooth last night ?; (or over the weekend if today is Mon.)
What is today's Special (Music or P.E., Art class, computer lab, etc.)
Birthdays
You could also model use of tally marks to keep count of number of days of school. This skill will come in handy later on in the year like when you have kids interpret tally mark graphs).
I use a number of ideas from above listed that I learned years ago when I took the "Math Their Way" workshop training.

(O: Hope this helps!

Save yourself all the trouble. Buy yourself a SAXON Math Homeschool Kit for first grade. Just read the script and do what it says. It takes care of all the calendar stuff and only takes a few minutes a day.
They have a website, and the teacher supply where I live in Texas sells the kits.
Good luck to you!!!
