BTS: Year-Round Classroom Calendar Cards

I know, I know...it’s not even the end of the current school year and already I have my eyes set on next year. However, one helpful piece of advice I could ever pass on to any teacher is to begin reflecting and thinking about the ways in which you would like to prepare yourself and get organized for the year ahead. For many years I’ve always changed and adapted my approach to classroom management and organization and this year is no different.

There are a lot of ways in which I get organized for back to school and for me I always begin with one of the most important subjects: morning meeting and calendar time. During this brief gathering in the mornings I get together with my class and we review and discuss key calendar and math concepts all within a 15-20 minute period. Morning meeting has proven to be when my kids are most engaged and because the routine of doing it every day allows them to be prepared to think and share as a whole group.

Get prepared and organized at BTS with this complete year-round calendar card set! It includes months Sep-Jun, years from 2016 to 2020, AND a collection of holidays, special events, and seasonal cards that you may celebrate throughout the school year!

In years past I have always opted for the store-bought calendar set and although they got me through the school year, I found myself not having the necessary holiday or school specific card - and besides, when I left my school district when we moved to CA I couldn’t take my calendar set with me since it was purchased with PTO funds.

So, I decided to do what any other teacher-author would do and that’s to create my own calendar set and OF COURSE share it with all of you! This download includes a lot of what you would otherwise have to purchase separately.

So, what’s included in this download?

- monthly cards (Sept-Jun)
- date cards in bright colors and clip art for each month!
- year cards (2016-2020)
- days of the week cards
- ‘today is’ ‘tomorrow will be’ and ‘yesterday was’ cards in both black and white!
- special event, holiday, seasonal, and school-specific cards for the entire year!

Year-Round Calendar Cards!
This Year-Round Classroom Calendar Set includes all major holidays, special events, and seasonal cards that may be celebrated in your classroom! No need to purchase these cards separately so save your money and download this complete set!


I immediately fell in love with these bold colors and who doesn’t enjoy the clip art from the lovely Melonheadz Illustrating or KPM Doodles?! I’ve made sure to include the majority of the special occasions, holidays, and seasonal cards that occur in the classroom, but if I’ve missed something or you would like a card added to this collection, feel free to email me at: kellyjdaniel1@gmail.com!


The Year-Round Classroom Calendar Cards set also includes seasonal and school-specific events!

Monthly Calendar Sets
Each month is complete with brightly colored date cards, which feature clip art that’s associated with that month! Some holidays are printed right on the date (For example, Christmas is always on the 25th of December) otherwise you can opt to use the separate holiday cards in its place for those holidays or school occasions that fall on a different date or day each year.

Days of the Week & Year
Practicing days of the week is an important skill in Kinder-1st grade and these cards pop with color and will for sure stand out in your classroom and calendar area. I have both black (pictured below) and white for your convenience and this download includes years from 2016 all the way to 2020!

**Teacher Tip: I personally love my at-home laminator because the laminating sheets are so durable that I have yet to replace my Writing Process Poster Set and my kiddos use that every day!


I am continuing to create and share more resources for morning meeting and calendar time, so be sure to follow me here on the blog as well as on Facebook and my Teachers Pay Teachers shop!
