|Here is the worksheet I used in 4th grade.|
|Here is the calendar for 5th grade 1st semester|
You can click the above link (or click here for 5th grade...the picture isn't working for some reason!) and it will take you to the worksheet to download.
Once I had all of the things on my Calendar that I felt needed daily, constant review, I then went about setting up my calendar board. I have had many incarnations of the board. The last few years, due to space issues, I have the templates on actual railroad boards. These go up and down as I work on Calendar with the kids.
These are close up views of the boards I use. These were used FIRST semester in 5th grade. Second semester looks a *bit* different (no odd/even, for example)
But this year, I have space again in my room (different set up) and I am able to have a dedicated board!! I am so excited to have it up all day long this year.
For the templates I use (and this document contains ALL of the templates, AND an extra calendar math sheet that I use for the first semester of 5th grade/last semester of 4th grade...you can not get those for free on my blog) click on the thumbnail below. It will take you to my TpT store. (the templates for the bulletin board are $3.50...but you can still get the two above worksheets for free :) I would love it if you would buy mine, but you can make your own too ;) ) Though I fully encourage you to manipulate this to suit your needs, I respectfully ask that you do not repost on your own blog or TpT store. (free or paid) I appreciate you respecting my copyright on this. Thank you very much.
5th grade, I have a special treat for you. I created a 5th Grade Starter Kit!! This is over 300 pages of everything you need to get this amazing program started in your room. What is awesome about it (and what I am looking forward to having for next year) is that I have prefilled the numbers in on over 4 months worth of Calendar time...so the sheets are literally print and go for your students. You don't have to think about what numbers you will put on the Calendar sheets. It also gives you tons of examples of how you can actually implement the program in your room. There are editable sheets AND the templates in there for you. It literally is all there. You can get it here.
5th grade version AND the 4th grade version AND the 3rd grade version. If you teach 6th or higher, the 5th are perfect for you to edit (as they are based on CA standards, which I know contain a lot of middle school things in other states.) Again, you can always make your own....but I have done the work for you in case you want to go that route :)
Just so you are clear though, these are text boxes in WORD that you can put your own words on if you wish (or just keep it that way!) You CAN input the actual numbers in there each day if you want, though it will take a lot more knowhow than I have. I hand write them in. These are editable for you to change the actual math TASKS. I hope that makes sense. (I don't want anyone buying them thinking they are something they are not. Inputting the numbers is NOT what the editing is for)
Once you have the templates up and laminated, and your worksheet copied, you are ready to go!
Next up, the routine!
Or, if you would like, you can read about how to get it up and running the first week.
