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 – http://amzn.to/2wgZjLw (affiliate).
Underneath the clock I have used my month and days of the week cards:
Month Name cards - Southern Hemisphere
Days of the week cards
Date cards 1st - 31st
Seasons label cards
Season Name cards
Month Name cards
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 firstname.lastname@example.org .
