Link your Google Calendar into your Google Site!

Many teachers are moving to a Google Sites in order to communicate with parents and students easily and more efficiently.  A great way to do this is to embed your school calendar into your website.  You won't have to update it in more than one place--once you update it in calendars, it will automatically update to your site.  Plus, it will automatically go from month to month, so no need to post a new calendar for a new unit or new month--this will do it for you.

So, you want to insert your calendar?

Go to your google site and get to the page on which you plan on placing your calendar.

Click on the little pencil/pen in the upper right corner to enable editing of your site.

Place your curser in the spot you would like your calendar.

Go to Insert--Calendar.

Select the calendar you would like inserted.  If you want to change the name of it, you can do this here as well to give it a title.

Select save.

Then, save the site itself once you are back in it.

If you want to center your calendar to the page, just click the Center Alignment icon above the calendar.  Then save again!

There you have it! Simple.  Easy.  Ready to go!
