Google Slide Calendars: 2019/2020 Version

Two years ago, I shared a set of calendars that I created for my school site to help students say organized. Well, back by popular demand…Here are the 2019/2020 calendars!

At one of my previous school sites, our students were given a year-long, physical agenda to track their daily assignments.  As a school policy, our students were required to fill this out and teachers would sign/stamp that students had filled out the daily agenda at the beginning of class.  It was a great system for students and taught them how to be organized.  As our district went 1-1, our site did not purchase these agendas since there was the technology that could replace them at no cost.  Unfortunately, I have noticed that using Google Calendar is not exactly what the teachers are looking to use in their classrooms and/or they are not comfortable using it themselves.  Although I am a big Google Calendar user and have had success with my students, I can see their concern.  The calendar isn’t broken up by subject type and all of the information a student writes does not show up on the calendar view.  For my students, they were used to navigating Google Calendar but I decided to create something that more teachers would want to use with their students.

So…I created a series of calendars to help students stay organized, whether by a weekly or monthly basis. In addition to this, I also created a project and mindfulness calendar templates.

Enjoy! 🙂

The calendars above were primarily created to help students track assignments.  Once I started building those calendars, I started thinking about how I could create something for the 20Time Projects that my students would be doing in my AVID and Tech classes next year.  Immediately, I realized I had already created something useful while working on my Google Innovator Project.  For my project, I created a monthly planning process with new goals, ongoing goals, questions/comments/ideas, and status check.

Below are some “project planning” Slide Decks:

  1. These calendars are great, Meagan. I remember the days of printed agendas/organizers provided to each student — that was a middle school must. I think too often we assume that our high schoolers figure out organization on their own… and too often they don’t. These will be a great help to my students. I love the project planners — they’ll fit nicely with my NHD research project in the fall. Thanks for sharing and making my job easier!

    1. I absolutely agree! And they can get our of the habit of so quickly. I would love to hear how it goes if you use them!

  2. I love the idea of a mindfulness calendar. I want to incorporate more of it. Any ideas or thoughts on how to get the students actually trying the ideas??

  3. Thank you so much!! I’m so excited about this that I’ve already started adding slides to my copy for student reference, mainly how-to and ideas for use. We’ve never EVER had access to technology at my school, but next year…fingers crossed…we will have Chromebooks in classrooms!! We were told the same in the past, so I hope we really get them this time! If not, I’m excited to use the calendar myself. Thanks again for your hard work!! 🙂

  4. This looks awesome! I just shared this with another teacher so we can help our students structure their PBL projects! Thanks!!
