The Catholic Daily Learning Notebook and Calendar Printables packet has been updated for the 2020 – 2021 school year. All dates/calendar pages have been updated, plus the packet still contains undated calendar pages.
This product is for use within one family, a small group, homeschool co-op class, or one classroom only. If you would like to use this in multiple classrooms, a whole religious education program (in a single parish), etc., you will need to buy the large group/multiple classroom option.
This is a downloadable product. You will not receive a physical item, but rather a PDF file to print out on your own.
The Daily Learning Notebook and Calendar Printables Packet Includes:
“Today is…” page (14 total pages; 12 pages are month specific)
- Identify the day of the week
- Identify or write out the date (depending on which page option you use)
- Write how many days they have been in school – both writing it out as a number, such as 124, and then breaking it down into hundreds, tens, and ones
- Identify which season it currently is
- Pick the liturgical season and write out the feast day
100 Days Chart (1 total page)
This page features a chart with 100 squares. Have your children color in one square for each day of school. When they get to the 100th day of school, consider doing something special. The bottom of this page features an appropriate verse of Scripture.
“This is How I Write My Name” Page (6 total pages)
It’s amazing how children’s handwriting changes as they are practicing to learn how to and as they get older and continue to improve their handwriting. With these pages, there is one line for each month. Pick one day per month to have your student write their name, and then marvel at the difference at the end of the school year!
Three pages are dated from August 2020 – July 2021. The other three pages are the same, but they simply have a spot to write the date in, in case the first set of dates don’t work for how you will be using the packet.
Each page features an appropriate verse from Scripture (three different verses total).
Monthly Calendar Pages (25 total pages)
There are monthly calendar pages for July 2020 – July 2021. These have the numbered dates on the calendars that they can trace.
There is also a set of undated calendar pages. The undated pages (where students can write in the numbers themselves) are just labeled as July – June. This will allow them to be used in any year. There is also one additional undated calendar that just says “Month: ______________” at the top.
Weather Chart Page (12 total pages)
This page has the month’s name at the top, such as “My January Weather Chart” and then an appropriate verse from Scripture underneath (the same verse is on all of the pages). Students can then color in a box each day declaring the weather to be either: sunny, partly cloudy, cloudy, rainy, windy, or snowy. While I know that these weather conditions are sometimes present on the same day, just tell kids to pick the one that they think is the best fit for each day.
At the end of the month, there is a question that asks students to choose the type of weather that happened the most that month.
Dates have actually been updated for the 2020 – 2021 school year.
“I can help Jesus” Page (2 total pages)
At the end of each month, children can be given this page to think of words or actions they used in that month where they helped Jesus by helping other people. This might be something as simple as sharing a cookie with their brother or something bigger like raking leaves for a neighbor. This is a great way to encourage kids to help others, as well as to reflect on the things they have done.
There is one page that features an open space where kids could write words or draw a picture. On the second page option, there are just lines for writing.
Monthly Saint Coloring Page (12 total pages)
This is probably one of my favorite parts of this set. These are the ones that Eric drew one saint for each month of the year for. On each of the coloring pages, there is a saint, their name, and the date of their feast day. For example, because St. Martha’s feast day is July 29th, she is the featured saint for July.
I added this coloring book to the packet last year. You can also get the Mary coloring book all on its own through this post.
The coloring book has a cover that can be colored in and then half-sized pages featuring six pictures of Mary that can be colored in with the Marian feast days listed for each, which happen throughout the year.
This coloring book is in the same style as the books in the whole year set. So, if you like it, you might want to pick up the other 12 coloring books just like it and use one each month with your kids.
