I’ve had lots of requests for an early release of the 2016 monthly calendar, so here it is! The other major request over the past 6 months was for the weeks to run from Sunday to Saturday, so I’ve put in the work and now you can choose between Monday to Sunday OR Sunday to Saturday.
These monthly calendars are excellent for using in the classroom or to send home with reminders for the coming month. Some teachers enlarge them to use in classroom activities and others have the kids colour them and bind them into a yearly calendar to send home as a gift to families.
These free calendars have become one of my most popular posts since the first one was introduced a year ago, and it’s wonderful to hear stories of how they’re being used in schools and homes!
This newest version has undergone some upgrades.
- You can now download a Sun-Sat version as well as the original Mon-Sun version
- I’ve included a few more nationally-relevant days for different regions by adding separate pages. I try to avoid putting all the popular American holidays on a general calendar because it’s a little frustrating for non-US teachers!
Regional pages include:
US: Memorial Day*, Veterans Day*, Independence Day, Thanksgiving and Kwanzaa. Halloween is included in the general calendar as it is slowly becoming more popular outside the US. (*These were added Dec 14, so if you downloaded earlier, please re-download if you’d like these extra dates).
UK: St. Georges Day and Guy Fawkes Day
Canada: Canada Day and Thanksgiving
Australia / New Zealand: Australia Day, Waitangi Day, Anzac Day and June is included with wintery graphics rather than summer graphics.
Do you have requests?
If you would like to request additional special days for your region in future calendars, please leave a comment at the end of this post. I can’t promise to include it, but I can try! The next monthly calendar edition will be the 2016/2017 calendar that I’ll probably create around the end of May.

Looking for editable versions?
You can buy editable versions of these calendars at Teachers Pay Teachers or Teacher’s Notebook. Since I’m updating them every 6 months, once you’ve bought one version you’ll be able to go back and download any new versions for free.
I hope you find these calendars very useful and wish you happy teaching and learning!
