Printable PDF: linear Montessori/Waldorf calendar for 2021
- any other language (contact me previously)
A fun and creative way to learn the concept of time !
The linear calendar is a visual representation of a year. It is hands-on and concrete, visual timeline for children to truly begin to understand the concept of time. The linear calendar is very long, because a year is very long, and it allows us to bring the concepts of day, week, month, season, year … For children it is difficult to understand the meaning of “last week we went to the movies”, “in summer we will go to the beach”, or “tomorrow we go swimming”.
And they often get frustrated for not understanding. A yearly linear calendar can help them to visualize all these events. You can mark “today”, or cross out past days. We cross out at home, and the children love it!
The calendar measures almost 7 meters. You probably don’t have a wall that long, but being made of paper, there is no problem in placing it following corners, or placing it in smaller pieces as the year goes by. We use a 2-meter wall in the kitchen, and we put the piece that fits. When we reach the end, we place the next piece, and it works for us. My daughters understand that the calendar is continuous, but simply does not fit entirely on the wall!
What is included?
This 10-page PDF document includes a linear calendar for 2021 and a sheet with icons to paste on the corresponding days (birthdays, visit to the doctor, swimming pool, …). Of course you can add as many icons or drawings as you need. Each day has a space of 1.9 x 3.6 cm, enough to be able to write down activities for this day. The whole year measures almost 7 meters. The calendar is designed in black and white for easy printing. You can color the header of each month in another color, if you wish. Weekends are slightly shaded. For example, we color the vacation days.
