What does your calendar routine look like for middle school?

Currently, we draw names for kids to share about different parts of the calendar, but our class is getting too big for all to stay engaged. Any ideas that get them using the vocabulary/interacting without boring of the routine are appreciated!

I don’t do a calendar routine, I just have my students write the full date on their work so they’re noticing it each day. I have a big calendar at the front of the room with important dates written on it and it naturally leads to discussions about time.

“Oh, look Tuesday is Pablo’s birthday! Can we sing for him?”

“Teacher, next week says report card on Friday. What is this?”

“Where is the field trip on December 16th?”
