I can’t believe that summer is almost over already. It has been a busy summer and, for the first time in a few years, we have managed to spend some quality time together as a family.
Where I live, the hot days will continue at least until October. The children, however, returning back to school is the signifier that summer is over.
This week’s free printable planner insert is a little bitter sweet. With my youngest attending preschool this year, it was time to design an academic calendar so I can keep track of all the school holidays and celebrations.
Bitter Sweet Planning…
I have just printed and incorporated this free printable academic calendar into my new planner set up. Getting used to the restrictions of term times will be something very new to me and something I am feeling a little anxious about.
We are used to the having a certain amount of freedom with our time. Now, more than ever, I am feeling the need to be more organized. I am hoping that this simple academic calendar will go a long way towards achieving this. With running Little Chiqui Paperie, my youngest son at home, my eldest son attending school and a husband who works shifts I am suddenly finding my schedule a lot busier than it’s ever been before.
I decided to use a nice pale yellow to highlight the weekends making them easier to distinguish. I have used the same colour to highlight the days of the week. I personallly love planner inserts that have a splash of colour to them. They keep me motivated to plan. Those of you who purchase from my Etsy store will know that FUN.ctional planner inserts are my thing. Having recently finished the design and launch of the Teachers Planner and Christmas Planner using beautiful colours themes, I was really inspired by the yellow.
Free Printable Academic Calendar
The free printable academic calendar is included in A5 size and personal size. Each size has an August and September start date. Both are designed to be printed onto A4 paper and cut down to size. The personal size academic calendar includes crop marks to enable you to cut the inserts down to the correct size. Fold lines are also indicated. I suggest folding the academic calendar prior to trimming the insert down to size.
The A5 version of the academic calendar comes with an indication line confirming where the insert should be cut. I suggest folding the A4 version in half prior to cropping. Once folded and cropped, you should have a perfectly folded and fitted academic calendar as show in the photo below. If you are printing on US letter size paper, you may have to adjust the print ratio very slightly. Some printers will do this automatically according to the paper size you have selected to complete the print job.
