Calendar Math
Our Every Day Counts Calendar Math provides about 30 minutes of
daily practice of skills such as: finding shape, color, and number patterns;
identifying multiples and factors of numbers; writing numbers in standard,
expanded, and word form; writing fractions, decimals, and percents;counting
money;telling time, graphing, and more.
Each month students are given a calendar worksheet to keep in their
Every Day Counts Folders. They are to identify and record calendar color
patterns and shapes. A certain amount of money is added to the daily depositor
for each day of school. Students are to keep track of their totals daily.
With this information they are to practice rounding the money amount to
the nearest ten, hundred, and thousand. They also write the amount in standard,
expanded, and word form.
As we cross off days on the chart, we write the crossed amount
as a fraction, a decimal, and a percent. We then identify the factors of
that number.
Mountain Language
Mountain English is a method of daily practice of basic English
skills. Students are given a laminated worksheet which contains 20 questions.
Each question corresponds to a card number on the bulletin board. Using
the bulletin board word, students answer each question. The words on the
bulletin board are changed each week. Some of the skills covered are as
follows:

Common/Proper Nouns

Singular/Plural Nouns

Contractions

Abbreviations

Compound Words
Students are usually assigned a set of numbers to complete each day. At
the end of the week, their papers are collected for a participation grade.
Answers are checked as a class activity each day.
