This interactive calendar engages young students in a "morning meeting" session. It can be used from year to year!! It is in a PowerPoint format, that will work with most smart boards. Students drag the date to the calendar and make a pattern for each month, fill in the days of the week to finish the sentences, "today is, tomorrow will be, and yesterday was", fill in a daily weather chart, determine the mystery number in a hundreds chart, number of the day (tally, ten frame, fact family, and number bond) and review shape attributes with 2D and 3D shapes. This is appropriate for preschool, kindergarten, and first grade. Also included is a student calendar for students to draw in the patterns on the board and keep track of their own dates, as well as a number of the day printable for individual students to complete as morning work.
