One of the things I love about Calendar Math is how engaging and interactive it is. We don't just sit down and review the answers, rather, the kids are moving, talking, and interacting with the board the entire review. To better illustrate this for you, I created a video of myself modeling all of the motions and gestures the students do during Calendar Math review.
Now, I know this would be SO much better if the kids were in the video...but they were at recess, so you will have to bear with me alone. It still gives you a pretty good idea of what is going on while the review is taking place.
Please ignore the fact that the video is only in the middle of the box. I took it on my iPhone, and am not quite sure how everything on it works yet. OY!
So there you have it! I know many of you are actually doing Calendar Math in your room already. How is it going? Anything you are doing that is successful and you want to share? (I am always looking for ways to improve CM)
