Dates in the classroom

Dates in the classroom
August 18, 2017 Comments Off on Dates in the classroom Teaching Ideas montessorisoul

I have been setting up my new classroom recently and have moved up into KS2.

I want to try and encourage my class to be more independent when it comes to writing the date.  I plan to teach them how the shower date is formed and that the numbers represent the day, then the month, e.g. January = 1, then the year, 16 = 2016.

I have this great clock I got in a Habitat sale but you can find similar on Amazon – (affiliate).

Underneath the clock I have used my month and days of the week cards:

[wpdm_category id=”calendar,” cols=”4″ toolbar=0 item_per_page=10 template=”58e47d0224145″]

Hopefully the children will learn to write their own short and long dates and work more independently 🙂

Also, living my hessian backed boards and fabric surrounds. A little effort to set up but this will be the second year I use them and they still look like new!!  Get your hessian from Amazon – (affiliate link).

As always we hope you enjoy this too!  If you have any questions or feedback please email me .
