The normal calendar routine just wasn’t working for me anymore and I had to change the way I did things in order for my kids to get more out of it. All of my folder inserts go with my calendar board inserts and you just choose which skills to focus on. There are tons of extra activities included and it is common core aligned. There are activites, printables, manipulatives, calendar pieces, numer of the day printables, quizzes and much more! There is so much in this pack it will make your head spin!
What is shown isn’t even a fraction of it! Everything is not shown above. I rotate out activities depending on what I am working on. In the pockets you have your problem solving cards, bang cards, number cards, environmental print cards, shapes and calendar cards.
All of these activities can be added to your existing calendar, even if you use Everyday Counts. Some of you are new and need to start from the ground up and some of you are more seasoned teachers and just need to add a few activities to spruce up you calendar time. Whatever your intent is. this pack can be integrated into your current calendar time even if you use a smartboard.
The tulip displays are included and are so cute and you just attach the leaves to clothespins and move it daily where it should be. Also on the weather cards I attached rings but you can also use paperclips to count the days for each one.

I just wanted to tell you that the new revision of the calendar is awesome! One of the other first grade teachers that I talked into using your calendar was shocked at how much her math scores improved last year! The only element that I was missing was the accountability part of the calendar which you addressed with your calendar quiz. I tried several times to make up a test from scratch last year, but I love the one that you have created. Out of 6 first grade teachers I was the only one who showed 100% growth with all my students (ELL included) this year. When my principal asked how this was possible I simple said I faithfully used your calendar every day! Thanks again.
