Since starting the new school year, Samuel and I have been enjoying doing a daily calendar center. Everything is on our refrigerator and it was all free, minus the cost of paper and ink. :) We cover what month it is, which month was last and which is next, the date, the current weather, the day of the week, which month number it is (as in, August is the eighth month), and what yesterday and tomorrow were/will be. We’ll discuss holidays and birthdays as we come to them but there aren’t any in August. :P Anyway, he gets to move magnets and tiny clothes pins around, which is a big hit, of course. ;)
These daily drills (so to speak) are working so well with him that I’m going to be adding some more of them to our day. I’m thinking of making a chart to 100 and looking at patterns, and maybe have a counting by 2’s, 5’s and 10’s list. He needs (and wants) to learn the teen numbers as he still mixes them up so I’ll make something with them, too.
Hmm, that’s all I can think of for now as I haven’t been in a Kindergarten classroom in a very long time, lol.
Any other ideas?
