The School Year Calendar starts with July of one year and ends with June of the following year. Each year in June I update the calendar with the correct dates as well as new clipart and fonts to give it a fresh look. The calendar pages are in color, but if you prefer black and white copies, just change your printer settings to the B&W mode.
Calendar Use Suggestions
After I began using these calendar pages with my students, I realized that they also make great planning tools for creating a thematic unit or planning with others teachers. Throughout the year, I discovered more and more ways to use this calendar until it became almost indispensable! Here's a list that might help spark some of your own ideas:
- Instructional Planning
- Personal Meeting Planner
- Literature Circle Schedules
- Attendance Graphing
- Project Planning and Organization
- Homework Planner
- Classroom Event Calendar
