Today, In My Classroom: Calendar Math


This year, I wanted to re-vamp my calendar routine this year for my firsties. In the past, I have used a Promethean flipchart from Promethean Planet that I downloaded years ago. I still use it, but I use it in conjunction with my daily calendar math sheet.

The picture above shows what I project on my promethean board. This actually shows what it looks like after we have filled everything in. I let my students work with a partner to complete their calendar math. I usually set a timer so that they know that we don’t have time to play! (Also, they know that we have our Math Daily 5 centers following our math mini lesson, so they are pretty good about finishing).


After the timer goes off, we review our calendar. I honestly started this late this school year, but I plan to copy enough for each month and make a booklet out of it. I wish I could afford to run off enough for the entire year and bind them together! Maybe next year I can!

Feel free to grab my daily calendar math sheet below or just click here! Leave me a comment and tell me what you do for your calendar routine!


Freebie Fridays



  1. Looks great, thanks for the freebie! Can you not make your copies at school or do you have to pay for them as you mentioned??

  2. This is terrific. I am a substitute and I think this is a great addition to the daily calendar times I do with classes.

  3. This is so cute and useful! Thanks so much for the freebie!

  4. Thanks for the template. I'm going to slide the sheet in page protectors that are in their math notebooks/folder. Student fills out the sheet, quick check by me, and ready to do again the next day.
