We put great stock in the educational value of calendars in the River Houses, and this week we’re pleased to make available our new set of printable calendars and planners for the 2021–2022 homeschool year that will begin in September:
The main calendar covers an assortment of major events and historical anniversaries throughout the year, and the five specialized calendars cover our annual schedules for astronomy, poetry, states and countries, North American birds, and World Heritage Sites. All six calendars are one-page pdf files, very simple to print and post on your family bulletin board.
These educational calendars are not intended for use with a specific curriculum: they are enrichment tools that can supplement any curriculum, even an open unschooling program, and they will help you create a light, comfortable, easy structure for your entire homeschool year. Pick one or two or three that strike your fancy, print them out, and follow along.
Accompanying the calendars is a matching set of homeschool planners: simple one-page blank schedules that will let you plan out your homeschool day, week, month, or year. Print multiple copies and use a different one for each subject or each student. And if you have older students, teach them how to use these planners themselves to keep track of their own work.
Please feel free to share these calendars and planners with all your homeschool friends, online and off. When you and I have a calendar in common we have a range of shared experiences in common, and that’s what builds community, week by week, month by month, all through the year.
What calendrical events will you be marking in your homeschool this season? 😊
