Interactive French Calendar for January 2021

Happy New Year!

I hope you had a restful holiday break. As much as I am glad to be back in a regular routine, I would much rather be in-class instead of teaching virtually. Alas, 2021 has different plans for us. So, it's time to dust off some old Google Slides and when a fellow teacher asked for a January version of my interactive calendar, I realized I hadn't yet shared this on my blog. I first saw an awesome English version of this on Jamboard created by the talented @MrsJankord and thought it was absolutely brilliant, I needed to make my own version en français. However, Google Slides is more my jam.

Interactive French Calendar for January 2021

For now, I have created a calendar and a weather board. Because it is a Google Slide deck, the manipulatives only work in edit mode, not presentation or view only mode.

Interactive French Weather Board - Google Slides

In class, I would have the students tell me what to do and I would make the changes. As an alternative now they were are temporarily teaching virtually, you could select a student of the day and grant them temporary access to the file, or share in Google Classroom and make a copy for each student.



If you would like to make a copy for classroom use, click here. To update the numbers on the calendar once January is over, simply navigate to SLIDE - EDIT MASTER and edit the numbers in each cell on the Calendar layout.

UPDATE: I've swapped the text boxes containing the months and the days with pictures so they are easier to move.

And by popular demand, I’m sharing a calendar for février, mars, avril, mais et juin! (Click on the images below to grab a copy.)

  4. Hello Diana,
    I love your blog and your work. Your slides are simple and visually appealing. The content of your site is excellent and I'm grateful to have the opportunity to learn many of the suggestions you make.
    I have a question regarding the weather slide. Is it possible to make a copy of it? I've tried to click on it, but perhaps we're not supposed to copy it? I wanted to put it with the beautiful March calendar. Thank you again for sharing and providing great information for French teachers.

    1. Hi Susan,
      Thank you so much for your kind words! I really appreciate the feedback.
      Originally, I had the weather board on the January calendar which people could copy and paste onto any other slide deck if they wanted to. Now I've gone back and added it to every calendar and I've also created a separate doc that has just the weather board. Click on the picture with the blue sky to access a copy or you can download the updated version of the March calendar.
      Bonne journée!
