Even though it was halfway through July when we came back to school, we have been completed these “Calendar Discovery” tasks throughout the year, and so this month was no exception.
Our first maths lesson after holidays was looking at the months of July and August. Even though I teach Grade 3 and 4, the children are still struggling with the concept that if July ends of a Friday, then August must start on a Saturday – an everyday concept for us I guess, but not for them.
We had made the assumption that the children had learnt this concept in younger years so we have been “doing calendars” more often.
I have a Grade 3 sheet and a Grade 4 (or extension) sheet. Both are included my Calendar Discovery – A Monthly Calendar Task pack. I have two packs, one for the remainder of 2013 Calendar Year and one for this coming 2013/2014 School Year. As some of the months have already past, both packs are heavily discounted!
