Setting Up... Calendar

Here we go for number 4 for our Setting Up Series. This week, we are going to talk about CALENDARS! First, I put a group of 'setting up' images to show different ways to set up your calendars using your classroom wall spaces. Then, I found several brilliant bloggers who came up with some really smart hacks to make classroom calendar very easy!

A new popular option is using white boards and painters tape. I love the way that this blogger set up her calendar with magnets. The dates are big enough so the kids can see important dates from their seats.

Love this calendar math column next to her calendar. Great idea! Number of the day changes daily (obviously), so Angela simply erases the marker each day. This would be a great opportunity for classroom leaders to take leadership as well.

I love how Farley set up clocks that show what times the important events are during the day. This creates a need for students to constantly utilize their calendar area. It makes it very meaningful. Great blog post outlining calendar, too!
