Grab Your Free School Year Calendar!

When I was teaching, I searched everywhere to find the perfect calendar for my students, but I just couldn’t find one that worked. I wanted 8 1/2 x 11 monthly portrait-style pages that would fit in a 3-ring binder, and I also wanted large blocks for writing in the dates and events.

Eventually I gave up the search and decided to make my own. To create more space for writing on the weekdays, I made skinnier date blocks on the weekends. It turned out to be exactly what I needed, so I decided to share it with other teachers.  They loved it, too!

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.

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

Editable School Year Calendar

My free School Year Calendar is a PDF file, and 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 a PowerPoint version that you can customize and make your own. 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!
