Here is a new photo of our calendar area this year.

On the left you see our straw count and our base ten blocks count.  For the base ten blocks, I put little bits of magnets on the back and we stick them on a flat metal sheet I had.  Next to that is the weather circle that I got at Target in the dollar spot.  We have three children tell what our recess weather was like and then we place the arrows on the corresponding weather.  We then record the weather that was mentioned most often on the weather graph above it.  At the top are our Days of the Week and Months of the Year and you can also see our calendar.  Off to the left on our large white board, we also have ten frames that we add a sticker dot to everyday.  When we fill one ten frame, we tape up a new one and start adding to that one.

  1. Hi Kristen,
    I use Imagine It reading program ~ I see you have the letters up – do you have them turned to the picture at the beginning of the year? I don’t turn them until we learned it. Also, can you give me some ideas for beginning of the year literacy centers. Thanks,


  2. Great idea with the 10 frames. Goes great with base ten =) and I have the same weather chart from Target. Love it! Thanks for linking up!!
