I wanted to share something that I think you would really enjoy. I have been using it since last year and it has been marvelous for my classes. It is our Daily Calendar Routine.

Basically I took all of the 2nd grade CCSS and made a routine for our calendar time that changes with each nine weeks. I have it worked out where the skills for each nine weeks are in the order that I need them and that is the great thing about this. You can take the materials that are provided and move them around to use whenever you need them. They do not have to be used in the order that it is presented in.
 
What my kids love about this is the binders they get to use with dry erase markers. I set my binders up last year and now they are good to go for however long I need to use them. Each page the students need is in a sheet protector and we just erase at the end of our calendar time. Here is what my kids look like during our calendar routine each day.
 


 
I have one big bulletin board that is used just for our calendar that looks like this:
 


 
Most of the things you see on the board come in the packet. I have all of the materials for each nine weeks organized something like this:


 
These labels are also included. You will also find several options for setting up your students' calendar notebook.
 
 
 
So for each day we take about 10-20 minutes and cover each skill I want to use in that particular nine weeks. This way my students are getting exposed to these CCSS skills on a daily basis. Here is a breakdown of the skills but remember you don't have to follow this order.
