I realised I have some calendar printables to share. (See the end of the post for the download link.) I created these last year to go in the pocket chart I have. I printed these on cardstock and laminated them for use in the pocket chart. I never got around to making a complete set of calendar numbers for the whole year. There are numbers for ten months and one of those is the states of Australia which not many of you are likely to use! I re-use a couple of sets to get through the year.
These are small calendar cards. They fit my pocket chart which I got in the Target (USA) dollar bins about 3-4 years ago. They may or may not fit yours, I’d recommend printing a draft black and white copy to see if they would fit. Other uses: glue to a poster or A3 size paper to create a calendar. Use the print multiple pages per sheet option to print smaller and they would fit on an A4 or letter size paper to fit in a notebook. Use for little ones to practice counting- lay them out and count each number. Bind some into a little book for your toddler or preschooler (Ladybug loves the little books I make her!). Colours/pictures alternate in different patterns so you could use these to talk about patterning too.
Right now our calendar is clipped to our easel. The season cards at the top come from 1plus1plus1equals1.
For the month headings, each season is a different colour. Hmmm, I used blue for June because it is cold here in June! And green for spring which for us starts in September. (It’s almost spring here! Hallelujah!)
There are ten sets of number cards. All of them go through number 31 so that you can use them for any month. If you want to use the Christmas trees in July or the hearts in August you’re all set.
The holiday cards (see pictures later in this post) are a little taller and can go behind or in front of the number.
There are two sets of yesterday, today, and tomorrow cards. One set is extra tall to allow for the holiday cards. You’ll find them on a separate page in the download.
Here are the holiday cards. I tried to include all the main holidays and some fun ones too. There are season cards to place on the calendar for the first day of each season. (This a sampling, not all are pictured.)
Some specifically for Australia…
And some specifically for the US. (I know, Cinco de Mayo is not technically a US holiday!)
I store all of these in this klipo box. Everything but the names of the months fit in here.
Also included in this download are a list of days and months, a What’s the season? chart, and a What is today? chart (for practicing yesterday, today, tomorrow.) These items would all be for display on a calendar board and aren’t designed to go in a pocket chart. I created this files last year when I was still using Excel to create my printables. I’ve since switched to Publisher which is a whole lot easier to use for creating printables. When I converted these files to pdf I discovered some odd lines here and there which would be too time-consuming to try to do away with so I left them in. Also there are some pages which are not full, I normally would try to be conscious of this so as not to waste paper or laminating sheets. It’s just hard to get it all in the right place in Excel which is one of the reasons I switched to Publisher.
Hope someone can use these!
