I am so excited with how the Color Your Own Calendar turned out this year!
I know that many of you weren’t happy I didn’t publish a new calendar in January. I’m really sorry about that!
It turns out many people would rather have it run July – June like the Daily Calendar Notebook, so you’ll see that change in this year’s Color Your Own Calendar.
I hope your young ones enjoy them!
✔ If you love this Color Your Own Calendar, you’ll want to take a look at the Daily Calendar Notebook for 2020-2021.
Color Your Own Calendar 2020-2021
As in previous years, I’ve included three different types of calendars in this packet.
The pictures and headings are the same, however, there are 3 types of writing opportunities.
You’ll find the following calendar types in this packet:
— Calendars with the dates filled in
— Calendars with dotted lines for tracing
— Calendars that are blank so your child can fill in the date
Note that this year’s calendar runs from July 2020-July 2021.
Suggestions for Using Color Your Own Calendar
There are several ways you can use these calendar printables. Here are just a few suggestions:
→ Consider this a massive coloring project and color all at once!
→ Color one page per month. For example, make the first day of the month the Calendar day. Talk about national and personal holidays and have your children mark those on their calendar.
→ Complete the pages at the beginning of the year, over a course of a few days.
→ Do you complete a unit study on seasons? If so, color only those months appropriate to the seasons you’re studying.
→ Pair this calendar with any of the other Calendar Work packets to create a fun morning time routine:
A few helpful notes:
→ Print the calendar pages on card stock. If you’d like your calendar to last the whole year, card stock is much more durable and is sure to last the whole year.
→ Use your comb binding system (affiliate link) to bind the pages along the top. Then your calendar will be flippable. And flippable just makes things more fun!
→ If you have a daily notebook or calendar notebook, insert the month’s calendar page at the front so you can go over the day’s date. Use a plastic page protector for even more durability.
