Traceable Monthly Calendars Freebie

Oh, the memories...I can remember when I first made these traceable calendars to use in my classroom in 2006....yes I know that's quite a few years ago.  Back when I was first teaching I went to the 'net' to find wonderful ideas online and browse daily in search for teacher websites...before I even knew about blogs!  
I was inspired to make these calendars when I came across Mrs. Meacham's website and read about how she used calendar binders.  I loved the idea and wanted to make my own calendars for my students to use in their binder.    
I think it was in 2010 when I decided to make my own class website.  It was so much fun learning how to make a class website and I began to share my calendars there.  
This year I had to decide if I wanted to renew or say good-bye to my website, since I was having such a hard time keeping up with it with a laptop that was as slow as growing grass!  Seriously...it would take 5 minutes here and there for it to open anything!  And this is one of the many reasons why I wanted to learn how to create a class blog...but I decided that I would continue having it up for a little bit longer.  

Well anywhoo, I don't want to bore you with me rambling about how I made these calendars.  They are simple, nothing fancy...I like 'simple!'  If you'd like to download the calendars click here.  

I'd love to hear what you think of the calendars and if you have used them in your classroom.  I enjoy reading comments from all of you.:)

  4. Thank you for sharing the calendars. They are AWESOME! I was thinking that I would use them during Calendar Time but I can't decide between that time or Morning Work. How do you incorporate them?
    Have a wonderful school year!
