Printable Calendars - Suggestions for Use


  • Don't forget you can make these calendars smaller by changing printer settings to more than one page per sheet.  Can also print A3 size if you have a A3 printer - these are great for whole class / display use.

  • These calendars are great for use every year as the children can block off the days at the start and end of each month which are not being used once they know which day the month starts and ends on (this is a great way for children to understand how the days flow from one month to the next.)

  • As each month changes, children mark in all the numeric dates and write / draw / stick in important dates to remember that month - including class birthdays, school events, seasonal activities.

  • Great to use each morning to record weather - you could do this via symbols in corner of each day square, record how they are feeling through drawing faces.

  • Great for class discussion / questioning eg...  which day is the 13th March?,  what date is the second Saturday in January? etc

Print each month and fill in the details (I like to use velcro). Create a plus shaped 'lift the flap' activity for last week, next week, yesterday, tomorrow to help chn become familiar with the calendar's patterns. eg 14th is shown, last week would be the 7th, next week 21st, yesterday 13th etc.


Bree (19-03-2013)

I would print these for each student to record each day, date of the week as well as my wall one. this would reinforce days and dates, months and seasons. For year 1/2/3 i would use them as a diary and record homework, events etc. I also would use this to design our own mothers and fathers day calendars would back onto A3 card with students photo on top.


Kate (19-03-2013)

I would distribute this calender format to every child to teach several things. The first main purpose would be for children to record and number each day they are at school for the entire year. Every day with the new number we would brainstorm as a class, ways we can make this number (eg: If the children had been at school for 39 days, we would make equations such as 40-1=39 or 30+9=39) This is teaching children basic facts and strategies, and is a great activity as it can be manipulated for many different year groups. The calender can also be used to teach many other early childhood concepts such as months of the year,weather and how many days in each month, and can also be used for middle/upper childhood to show other curriculum areas such as time management, and weather trends over time.

I would use this as a gift for parents at the end of the year by attaching photos and artworks done by their children . I would also use it in class to detail upcoming events for students to see.


Sophronia (19-03-2013)

This would make a good lesson for teaching students about the many things that happen during a month. At the start of each month students can be given a copy of that month and they write in the dates. Then, once this task has been completed, students can fill in class birthdays for the month and any other things like school holidays. The teacher can also advise students about days they need to remember things for and these can be written in. This way students can be well informed about expectations and happenings for the month and keep track of what is happening. Of course, this would work best from year 2 onwards.


Renee (19-03-2013)

Our Special Education class has 6 children with varying abilities. We have a folder for each student with activities that suit each individual. The higher achieving students use the calendar on a daily basis to mark off the day of the week each morning. We also use the calendar to teach the days of the week and celebrations such as Easter, birthdays and Christmas.


Gerry (19-03-2013)

We count the days we've been at school on a calendar on the wall. I would run off these for the children to keep their own record. That is, after filling in the dates, they would write the number of days we've been together as a class in the space left in the square. This gives them practice in writing the numbers in sequence, and counting to 100. We go up to 100 and celebrate the 100th day. Then we start again from 1. When there are only 50 days left in the school year, we start a countdown from 50 to practise the backwards sequence. Having their own copy would allow them the practice in writing it themselves, after starting at the beginning of the sequence and counting aloud from our wall calendar up to the current day..

I would print off US ones and Australian ones to compare which months in each hemisphere have which seasons e.g. June would be Summer in US and Winter in Australia.

  • I extend the YES/ NO game by printing the DOLCH words (small print) ,cutting up the lists and laminating them & including them in the YES /NO packet. Use a blank card to put ?'s about these words e.g. how many times can you find these words in Chapter 2? Chn. list the results on a whiteboard.

  • The Sea words are great to add to the Lighthouse series books when you are doing these books with the children. you could extend the theme to the sea and then to pirates and far away lands and maybe even first contact explorers of Australia.
