    What types of things do you do during calendar/gathering board time? I need some new ideas for first grade. Thanks

    Say and spell month/day
    Count to 100
    Daily weather and monthly weather graph
    Use coins to show date (ex: August 24--24 pennies, 2 dimes+4 pennies, etc.)
    Count by 2s, 5s, 10s--random ways each day
    Add straw to tally pocket chart
    Yesterday/today/tomorrow
    Add puzzle piece to 100pc puzzle (idea from jmeacham.com)

    these are just some of the things we do...

    Morning message - You can edit for mistakes, or circle certain words (rhyming words, words with the long E sound, words with 2 syllables...)

    Number of the day - How many different ways can you make 10? 5+5, 6+3+1, 10-0, 10 tally marks...

    Problem of the day - HOw would you solve this problem? 9+2, some kids will use pictures, others count on their fingers, some may make the 9 a 10 and add 1...teacher records these methods.

    I like problem of the day because it allows me the chance to model for students how to record their thinking, which is big in our district.
