EVERYDAY COUNTS
CALENDAR MATH
Math is
about
thinking
and
reasoning
and this is
the basis of
Everyday
Counts.
A lot of math in only 10 to 15
minutes a day!!
It provides supplemental math instruction
based on simple interactive bulletin boards
Key Strategies
• Spread 6 to 10 major topics throughout the year
(counting,place value, facts, computations,
fractions, measurement)
• Use visual images to help students understand key
concepts (100’s board, daily depositor, fraction
strips, clock, money)
• Focus on reasoning and communication. (How did
you solve it? Is there another way? Who can
explain that?
Basis for Everyday Counts
• 1. Children need to learn mathematics
incrementally over time with lots of examples .
• 2. Visual models help children visualize and
verbalize number and geometric relationships.
• 3. Classroom discussions allow for the acquisition
of mathematical language and reasoning skills.
Also allows for children to discover strategies for
problem solving.
How familiar are you with this
program???
Here Are Some Changes Since
1998 Edition.
• 1. Calendar piece now have month printed
on them.
• 2. Skills are being taught earlier in school
year.
• 3. Package is different for better storage.
• 4. More teacher friendly teacher’s guide.
Changes Continued
• 5. More geometry and measurement skills.
• 6. Every grade level now has an informal
assessment calendar.
• 7. There are pre, post and middle of the
year tests with test items broken down on
answer key by skills or strands.
Changes Continued
• 8. In teacher’s manual under the calendar
picture, the month’s pattern is given.
• 9. Words highlighted in teacher’s manual
are vocabulary words that may need to be
introduced.
• 10. Shapes in calendar are now rotated to
show that they are the same shape but may
look different.
Teacher’s Guide
• As each element is introduced you will find:
–
–
–
–
–
New monthly lessons
Concepts and skills for that activity.
Daily routine of how to present materials.
Discussion questions.
Helpful hints to use.

Grade Major Components
• Calendar – patterns of colors, numbers, or
geometric shapes each month.
• Counting tape and hundred chart – helps students
develop number sense, place value,etc.
• Daily Depositor – reinforces place value
• Graphing
• Measurement – estimation, comparing, length,
capacity, weight, etc.
• Coin counter – counting mixed coins
• Clock – daily practice reading analog and digital
displays, AM,PM etc.
