    I am not happy with how I ran my calendar time this year. Could you share what you do and what time of the day you do calendar?

    I'm thinking about possibly having mini calendars for students, so that they are responsible and it's a little more interactive for everyone. Anyone done this before and have any thoughts on it? (I created one that had a blank calendar to fill in the days, a space for drawing tally marks, and then a blank number chart for filling in the number of days we've been in school)

    TIA! :)

    Here's how my calendar time went last year which was also my first year.

    ~sang good morning song
    ~offered peace
    ~went over helpers for the week
    ~went into the calendar
    I would ask what they day, month, year was. Fill those in.
    ~went into the weather
    ~made weather predictions for the next day.
    ~Finish up with any special announcements and or events for the day.
    ~meet with my kindergarteners to discuss their work for the day.

    In their workplan they also have calendars that they fill in daily.

    I agree I would like something a little more interactive.

    Have you ever done calendar books? I think the two websites I've used are Shari and Great ideas there. You can do as much or as little as you want. I start off with only a few pages in their book then add on as they are able to do more.
