I’m so happy to have Carolyn Wilhelm, of the Wise Owl Factory here! She’s has very kindly created a special editable and printable French calendar for you! Be sure to fly over and spend some time on her site, which is jam-packed with printable lessons and activities!
Editable French Calendar
Here is a sample of how the French calendar looks before any information is added. Special days like art day, physical education day, music day, school assemblies, and assignments may be added to the calendar.
If nothing is typed in a blue square, nothing will print. For instance, when printing on white paper, the unused squares will print in white. The color of the empty squares depends on the color of the paper being used in the printer.
The calendar is black and white, but your students (or you) can have some fun colouring the images above the calendar.
One option is to provide each student with a blank calendar for them to enter their own information. This works well for differentiated homework or schedules.
I used to have children color all the art days one color, for instance, red. Then all the libraries days were colored in yellow. The reason for the color coding was to make the calendar easier to understand for first graders who were still emergent readers.
Student participation in helping create the calendars also helps students understand their own schedules and responsibilities, as well. A combination of teacher typing and student color coding might also be useful in some situations.
For the non-numbered days in the French calendar, class information may be added such as, “Remember to sign up for conferences next month.” Or perhaps the class has a service project and several reminders are required during the school year. Teacher email or other contact information may be typed in the extra spaces, as well, to encourage parent communication.
For homeschooling families, these extra spaces could be used for reminders of upcoming field trips, special projects, or words of encouragement.
