What Are Monthly Calendars?
Have you ever wondered how we can keep track of the dates, the days, months, or the upcoming events? There must be something that we use, right? That collection of dates is known as a calendar! Yes, the same calendar you use to mark which day your big presentation is or when your dentist appointment is scheduled. But what is it actually? Let's take a look!
A system for the organization of religious, social, commercial, or administrative purposes is known as a calendar. This system is organized by giving names to periods of time, popularly called days, weeks, months, and years. Whenever the date and day are organized as per the month, the calendar is known as a monthly calendar. If the calendar is arranged by January, it will be known as "The Calendar for January." Each monthly calendar comes with the days, dates, social, and religious events marked on it. And it also has space for you to mark your own important events!
What is the Best Approach to Using a Monthly Calendar?
When students first are introduced to this tool, they tend to go a bit overboard and that can be a great or complete disaster for them. Here a couple of habits and tendencies that we encourage you to share with your students.
Use a Single Calendar for Everything - Students will see this and immediately think that more is better. They will begin to maintain a calendar for school, another one for their activities, and even another on for social life. This simply because cumbersome and unattainable. If they need more room to write, encourage them to get a larger calendar. If there simply is not enough room regularly, consider moving to a weekly calendar that provides you a great more of space to write things down.
Decide What Is Important - If you have a daily routine and are doing the same thing each and every day, at a certain point in the day, why waste the space? It makes sense for you to define what the unique instances, projects, or events should necessarily make it on to your calendar.
Weekly Notes Page - I find that having space available to list goals or substantial events to be invaluable for most students. This usually comes at the expense of the listed weekend dates.
