Numbers for Calendar
Numbers for calendar pieces are a great way to review number skills every day. These printable calendar pieces are great to work on place value for numbers 20-50.
Another month has flown by and April will be here tomorrow. We are looking forward to a couple of free days next week for spring break, and one special outing!
As we hit the beginning of the month, I wanted to add another set of calendar pieces to the slowly growing collection.
I’ve been focusing on number recognition with my four-year-old and wanted to continue reviewing this daily with him.
If you have read other posts regarding calendar pieces you know this is a very quick way to review concepts quickly.
This month the calendar pieces have base ten blocks, tally marks, ten frames, and expressions.
So grab a math journal and colored pencils for each of your kiddos, and have some fun with these pieces.
The Pattern of Calendar Pieces:
The Pattern for these place value calendar math pieces is as follows:
- Yellow, pink, green, blue
- Date on left, center, right
- Ten frame, tally marks, base ten frames
- Subtract three, add two
Calendar Math Kindergarten
Use this calendar lesson plan to discuss in detail the model they see, and ALL the colors on the piece.
- What number does it represent?
- How did you figure it out?
- What does this part of the model represent? (You could point to one long, one cube, one ten frame, or one of the tally marks. The goal would be to make sure they completely understand how they got to the number the model is representing.)
- What is today’s background color? What day will it be this color again? Does this color follow the pattern?
- What is the color of the number? Why is it this color? (Multiples of 2 are pink, and multiples of 4 are blue)
- You know any number is divisible by two if it is an even number. An even number ends in 0, 2, 4, 6, and 8.
- You know a number is divisible by four if the last two digits of the number are divisible by four.

Next, have them draw what they predict the next day will look like.
There is so much to focus on with these kindergarten calendar activities, and challenging the students to include all the details in the picture will strengthen their thinking skills.
