Print a free 2018 calendar with a bright border and bold, simple numbers and lettering!
Use these monthly calendar pages to teach time vocabulary and simple grammar lessons, or to decorate your classroom.
The large size set prints 1 month per page, but the design of each month is square. Trim off the top and bottom white space and paste the month to coloured card stock to make a brighter, more durable flashcard or small poster.
I used a bold font for the name of the month, abbreviated days of the week, and numbers. This should make each month more visible than your average calendar when teaching.
For group work and pair work, the medium and small calendar sets print 2 or 4 months per page, respectively.
What to Teach with 2018 Calendar Cards
The obvious things to teach with the 2018 calendar cards are:
- months of the year,
- days of the week,
- ordinal numbers.
The colours of the borders in this 2018 calendar match the colours in the Months of the Year Flashcard Set. This may help younger classes with matching activities, such as placing the correct label on the month.
In addition, you can also use the calendar months when teaching the simple present tense, frequency adverbs, and determiners like “every” (every day / every Monday / every weekend / every week / every month…). For those topics, the 2018 calendar cards pair well with verb cards from the Daily Activities Flashcards, Sports Flashcards, Regular Verbs, and Irregular Verbs sets.
