Months

As early as preschool, some children are exposed to the 12 months of the year. By second grade, both of my children were expected to spell both the days of the week and the 12 months correctly.

Months of the Year

The table below contains the 12 months of the year as well as an abbreviation, number of days and typical season associated with each month. We also provided a PDF template for each month which you can access by clicking on the applicable month. In addition, we created fun worksheets, e.g., crossword puzzles and word searches, to help your child learn the 12 months with fun activities. The worksheets are located below the table.

# Month Abbreviation # of Days Season
1 January Jan. 31 Winter
2 February Feb. 28 or 29* Winter
3 March Mar. 31 Spring
4 April Apr. 30 Spring
5 May 31 Spring
6 June 30 Summer
7 July Jul. 31 Summer
8 August Aug. 31 Summer
9 September Sept. 30 Fall (Autumn)
10 October Oct. 31 Autumn
11 November Nov. 30 Autumn
12 December Dec. 31 Winter

* February has either 28 or 29 days depending upon whether or not it is leap year. Leap year occurs every forth year when there is an extra day (Leap Day or the 29th of February). During a leap year there are 366 days in the year, e.g. 2016 and 2020.
