I'm taking over a kindergarten classroom beginning Wednesday. (I will observe Monday and coteach/transition on Tuesday.) The teacher is leaving a lot of things behind, but they are not in the best condition. The calendar area is one of my biggest concerns since I've never taught kindergarten, and it has been 8 years since I student taught 1st grade. So- what are my 'must haves'? I have seasonal calendar numbers somewhere, but most of them are not double sided. Are patterns on the calendar important? What types of things do you do? (I know people do every other day a different color, weekends a different color, etc... Not sure the best method here.) Also, besides the calendar activities and the weather, what else do you incorporate into calendar time or morning meeting time?? I'm a bit overwhelmed right now, so any help is appreciated!!
