If you would like a fun tool to help teach your children to be more organized, raise your hand. I have already shared two free printable calendars for 2018(botanical and space travel themed), but I thought it would be really cool to share a printable blank monthly calendar for children that is not only cute, but can help you to teach your children how to use a calendar.
I think most of us realize that using a calendar has tremendous benefits for helping us to be more organized, remember important appointments, complete important tasks and remembering important events like birthdays, anniversaries and vacations!
There is absolutely no reason our children can’t be taught how to use a calendar to help them be more organized, too! I wish I had thought of this idea when my children were younger. Now, I’ll just have to use it with the grandkids (as soon as they’re old enough to write).
Suggested Use for the Printable Blank Monthly Calendar for Children
These printable monthly calendars can be used in your home, home school or classroom. Feel free to copy and distribute for personal or classroom use. You can then instruct your child/student or assist them with writing in the numbers for every day of the month. To make the calendar more interactive, ask age appropriate questions like:
- How many Fridays are in the month of January?
- How many Mondays are in the month of February?
- What day of the week is July 4th?
- What day of the week is December 25th?
- What day of the week does your birthday fall on this year?
- If today is the last day of the month, what day will it be on the 1st of next month?
You can then assist your child will filling in important dates, holidays, family vacations, etc. There’s even space at the bottom of each monthly calendar for reminders, notes or just doodling. Encourage your child to make this calendar their very own and to refer to it regularly. It’s a great way for teaching children how to use a calendar and maybe even help prepare them to be a little more organized with their time as they grow older.
Once your child has completed filling out the calendar, you can then either hang it in a prominent place where your child can easily reach it, above a desk or even in a binder. The important thing is familiarizing them with the calendar and then teaching them how to use it to help them be more organized.
