[UPDATED for 2019] Print a free 2019 calendar! Each month has a bright stripe 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 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 calendar set prints 2 months per page; the small set prints 6 months page (the whole calendar on two sheets).
What to Teach with 2019 Calendar Cards
The obvious things to teach with the calendar cards are:
- months of the year,
- days of the week,
- ordinal numbers.
The coloured stripe for each month of the 2019 calendar matches 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 calendar cards pair well with verb cards from the Daily Activities Flashcards, Sports Flashcards, Regular Verbs, and Irregular Verbs sets.
Happy New Year!
