Right in time for getting ready for the 2020 – 2021 school year, I have updated the 81-page Daily Learning Notebook and Calendar Printables Packet for Catholic Kids to change the dated items for the 2020 – 2021 school year. As before, the packet still includes undated pages for every dated page it contains as well.
That way, if the dates don’t work for you, you will have undated versions. It also can work well if you don’t want to worry about getting an updated version next year.
Even though some of the graphics show the pages with dates from the 2015 – 2016 school year, you’ll receive the updated 2020 – 2021 school year packet.
Last year, I also added a new mini coloring book to the packet as well! It’s the Mary Coloring Book featured here.
Now, let’s get back to what I shared about this awesome daily learning packet when I first published it in 2015 (with just a couple of modifications):
Instead of putting together a Saints Printables Packet for the month of July, I decided to work on something a little different, which would be fabulous to use throughout the whole school year: the Daily Learning Notebook and Calendar Printables Packet for Catholic Kids. Whew! That’s a mouthful!
I’m super excited about it though, and I hope that you will be too!
Important Note: The Daily Calendar and Learning Pages Packet is an electronic file that you will download and print. No physical product will be shipped to you.
This 81-page packet features daily and monthly activities that work on skills such as calendar, dates, graphing, handwriting, learning about saints, and more. Farther down, I’ll give a rundown of all of the pages of the packet.
The appropriate ages for this packet vary. I don’t usually like to assign an age group to these kinds of things because there is such a variation among children and their abilities.
However, I think that this packet can easily be used with children in preschool – 2nd grade.
Before I go through the content of the Daily Learning Notebook and Calendar Printables, I really need to thank my wonderful husband, Eric. He hand drew all of the saints in order to allow me to include one coloring page per month for this packet. Isn’t he great?
Because of this, this is not clipart for public use. That would not only be against copyright law, but it just wouldn’t be nice. Thanks to Eric for sharing his time and talents this summer when I’m sure he would have loved to have just been watching some movies!
The Daily Learning Notebook and Calendar Printables Packet Includes:
“Today is…” page
(14 total pages; 12 pages are month specific)
Note: one page in the packet omits the liturgical season and feast day sections and students pick the actual season it is plus there is a Bible verse at the bottom of the page.
- 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. There are three different verses used.
Monthly Calendar Pages: for 2020 – 2021 School Year Plus Undated Pages
(26 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 are 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.
“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.
These are the saints included for each month:
- January: Saint Thomas Aquinas
- February: Saint Agatha
- March: Saint Katharine Drexel
- April: Saint George
- May: Saint Joan of Arc
- June: Saint Peter
- July: Saint Martha
- August: Saint Monica
- September: Saint Michael the Archangel
- October: Saint Therese of Lisieux
- November: Saint Andrew
- December: Feast of the Immaculate Conception
If you want more saints coloring pages, a perfect addition to this learning packet is the saints coloring books for the whole year. There is a coloring book for each month filled with saints!
My Book about Mary Coloring Book
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.
Pages included in the Mary Coloring Book:
- Coloring Book Front Cover (with picture to color as well)
- February 11: Our Lady of Lourdes
- May 13: Our Lady of Fatima
- June 27: Our Lady of Perpetual Help
- July 16: Our Lady of Mount Carmel
- August 21: Our Lady of Knock
- December 12th: Our Lady of Guadalupe (Here is a whole printables packet for Our Lady of Guadalupe and Saint Juan Diego)
- Back Cover
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.
Family and Single Classroom Usage:
Your purchase covers usage under all of these conditions. The cost is $5.00 for personal and single classroom use.
Multiple Classrooms/Whole School/Homeschool Co-op/Whole Religious Education Program (in a single parish) Usage:
If you will be using it with more than one classroom, co-op, group, etc. you will need to purchase the license for this use. The cost for the larger group/multiple classroom usage is $10.00.
By paying for this packet, you help to make it possible for me to continue offering packets like this.
Important Note: The Daily Learning Notebook and Calendar Printables Packet is an electronic file that you will download and print. No physical product will be shipped to you.
