I cringe when I have to miss CALENDAR TIME. I LOVE calendar time. You know all those math concepts that kiddos just have to memorize? I present them early on in the year and we use songs, chants, rhymes, and movement to practice them EVERY DAY. Pretty soon it's automatic for my kiddos and we all feel SO SMART!!!
Teaching time by doing! Many kids learn by doing so having them use their bodies to make the time would be a benefit to them. Let them figure out how to move their body to get the correct time. Use a hula hoop and put tape around it and tape the numbers to the floor with masking tape.
