Games are an important part of the Everyday Math curriculum, therefore I try to incorporate a game into my lesson 34 times a week. I do 3 lessons each week, with 12 days of math exploration and 1 full game day, which is usually Friday. Exploration consists of setting up center activities for the children to work through. I generally set up 4 stations and have the children rotate through them.
Math Board:
30 minutes daily are spent on the following activities:
* Calendar * Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow * Number of the Day * Hundreds, Tens, Ones  using number of the day * Number Word * Money * Time * Number Grid for Challenge (1 more, 1 less) * Weather * Weather Graphs (Type of Days  sunny, rainy, snowy, etc.) * Temperature * Temperature Graph
Math Message:
I write my message ahead of time on a chart tablet. The message is ready for them when they return from lunch.
* Leads into the lesson, however not to be used as assessment of mastery. * Reviews prior knowledge.
Lesson:
* Transparencies of journal pages guides the lesson. * Teacher directed activity. * Use an Exploration as followup to lesson.
