Calendar Time

It has been several year since I have taught calendar time! It is one more thing that I am so excited about!! I have been a pinning fool lately. I am trying to make sure I am covering everything. This is such an important time of the day for little ones. Many have never seen a calendar, and the students that have probably know little.
I am grateful that I have been able to slowly start working in my new classroom. So many of you are not allowed in until right before school starts. Trust me, I am thanking my lucky stars!! One thing that I started to work on was my calendar area.

This is what I have so far. I obviously need all the numbers! They were victims of the move. I believe I am going to make my own and do some type of pattern. I have days of the week, months of the year, 100 hundreds chart, clock, weather, and graph for the weather. I want to add tally marks and hundreds, tens, and ones pockets/buckets. Is there anything I am missing?
I created a calendar journal to accompany the calendar. I am going to bind them and have the students fill them out a few times a week. I created one for the beginning, middle, and end of the year.
The cover is in black and white or color.
