Free 2020 – 2021 School Year Calendar
Years ago, I searched everywhere to find the perfect calendar to use with my students, but I couldn’t find one that worked. I wanted one with 8 1/2 x 11 inch portrait-style pages that would fit in a 3-ring binder, and I also wanted large blocks for writing due dates and events. I finally created my own, and the format worked so well that I decided to share it with other teachers. The School Year Calendar starts with July of the current year and ends with June of the next year. The calendar pages are in color, but if you prefer black and white, just change your printer settings to the B&W mode.
Ideas for Using the School Year Calendar
These calendar pages make great planning tools for creating a thematic unit or planning with others teachers. You can also share the pages with your students and teach them how to schedule and organize their time. Here’s a list of suggestions 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
Need an Editable School Year Calendar?
The free School Year Calendar is a PDF document, so you can’t type on it, nor can you edit it. You can print the pages and write on them, but that’s about it. Fortunately, I do have an editable version that includes both Google Slides pages and PowerPoint pages that you can customize. You can add or remove clipart, change the fonts, type in the calendar blocks, resize the calendar, and so on. My Editable School Year Calendar pack isn’t free, but it’s worth every penny if you want to make changes to the pages before you print them.
Whether you use the free calendar or purchase the editable version, I hope you find the School Year Calendar to be helpful!
