Get your students writing daily with these fun monthly writing calendars. This writing bundle includes writing calendars for the months of August through May. Each calendar has a prompt for each day of the week. Most prompts relate to that specific month, holidays, national daily holidays, etc. Read below to learn more about the monthly calendars, important information about this product, and everything else that is included in this large writing bundle!
In order to make this product adaptable for all teachers, I have made the majority of this product editable. I have included tips and how-to pages in this product that teach you how to edit your calendars, add rows, delete rows, merge cells, etc. in order that you can edit your calendars to fit your students’ needs and your school schedule.
Please read through each of your calendars before you print, as some prompts require editing to include personalized information. This is one way to add interest and variety to the prompts (ex: teacher name, principal name, etc.). You may also need to edit to show days you have off of school, holiday breaks, etc., as the editing of the calendars in this document may not fit your school schedule.
NOTICE: This download is in a Powerpoint format. Fonts that appear in this product will not transfer over to your download if you do not already have them installed to your computer. If they do not appear to have transferred over, you will need to download them. I highly recommend downloading the fonts prior to editing your calendars! You can find all of the following fonts at www.dafont.com and typing the font name in the search box.
Here are the fonts I have used: KG Blank Space Solid, MTF Jumping' Jack, MTF Jumpin' Jack EXT, KG All of Me, KG PDX Bridgetown
Tip: Print the calendar writing pages, cut around the edges, and have students glue them into a notebook. Have students use their calendar writing notebook daily to respond to each daily writing prompt.
