I'm excited to share these printable calendars you can use to start off twenty-sixteen prepared (even though its already the 10th!) and organized. I changed the look of this black and white calendar just a smidge but overall it looks pretty much the same! There is a landscape and a portrait version so just choose what works best for you and your notebook/binder setup or purpose for the calendar (meal planning, activity schedules, etc.)
I prefer the landscape version even though I put it in my 8.5 x 11" notebook. I just prefer the date boxes to be more square than rectangular so I don't mind turning my notebook to the side when I'm writing on it. I use a disc-bound notebook (find these here) so I can fold the entire notebook in half which makes it easy to write on without my fist/arm bumping into typical binder rings.
I also keep a copy of this calendar when scheduling my long-range plans for my classroom. I like to have a master copy that I can refer back to during the year to see when I taught different units/concepts.
Another copy hangs on my fridge for meal-planning like in the picture. I don't always plan out our meals like this every month, but its something I try to do as much as possible.
You can use these printable calendars so many different ways which is why I update them every year because I use them so much. Check out my these calendars in my Etsy shop HERE!
