I am trying to come up with a way to make calendar time more interactive, I have done the student leader, but the remainder of the class doesn't seem so excited! I do use Every Day Counts along with other things incorporated into the program. I have looked at Jmeacham's site and she has calendar binders: http://www.jmeacham.com/calendar/calendar.htm Do any of you do this for your first graders? If so, do you start them on day one, or do you start later? What sort of things to do you keep in them? Do you think it is beneficial? Any thoughts??
