Traditional Calendar or eCalendar

My good blogging friend at Oceans of First Grade fun asked the question: Calendar Board or Promethean Board?  I do not have a Promethean Board, but I do have a SMARTboard.

I love to use my SMARTboard, but I find that once the SMARTboard is closed the students are unable to reference it.  I love Growing Kinders idea of students having their own Calendar Book, so I am considering this option for next year.

My feeling is that you will want to use both.  What do you think?  Link up to Ms. A's page.  I really would like to know.

If you do have a SMARTboard, you may be interested in these FREE SMARTboard calendars.


  1. Thanks for linking up! I think I'm sold on the calendar matter which way I go.

  2. If I had a smartboard of some kind, I would probably use that AND incorporate the books too! But, I really love my "old school" calendar routine! My kiddos run the whole thing themselves! It's 15 minutes of bliss and it's super fun/educational for my kiddos.


  3. I've used a calendar book before and it was SOOooo time consuming! I abandoned it after one year. I will keep anchor charts posted at/in the specific math stations areas. I'm enjoying everyone's ideas!

  4. I have used my SMARTBOARD for calendar for the past 2 years and LOVE it! It is so interactive and fun for the students. I also have a small traditional calendar wall next to it for the kids to reference throughout the day and for subs to use. I am able to link songs and activities into my SMARTBOARD activities and the kids are so engaged.
