Several years ago I published a set of Days of the Week Worksheets. Even though I created the original set over 4 years ago, they still remain one of the most popular downloads here at Mama’s Learning Corner!
Not surprisingly, one of my most requested sets is Months of the Year worksheets in the same type of style.
Today is finally the day to post those!
Months of the Year Worksheets
Remembering the months of the year in order and spelling the months are more difficult skills for students to master.
I have found that repeated, consistent work with memorizing the names of the months, as well as spiraling spelling review aids with mastery.
And this packet focuses on just that!
My younger girls (and sometimes my oldest girl when I can work it in) do recitation a few times each week. I would love for that to be daily, but our life has a lot of moving parts, and that just doesn’t happen.
I’m happy with 2-3 times each week.
The days of the week and the months of the year are always included in my 8 year old’s recitation because she needs that spiral review. Even though we’re past the half-way mark in our school year, I realized that she still needed that review when she began memorizing January Brings the Snow by Sara Coleridge.
Each stanza focuses on a month of the year, and she had a bit of trouble remembering the order while memorizing the poem.
So we carry on with recitation and these lovely worksheets that help her review.
I’ve included a sampling of these pages for you to download below. In the sample, you will find Months of the Year cut & paste, handwriting practice in manuscript, a word search, and the first page of Word Work for the month of February.
The new Word Work pages are so fun! Each page includes directions to manipulate the name of the month, identifying its consonants and vowels, syllables, blends & digraphs, and more.
You’ll also see a bubble in the corner of each month with few a phonics rules that pertain to the word. Phonics work focuses on soft c, y as a vowel, types of syllables, ways to spell the long a sound, r-controlled vowels, and more!
The phonics rules are written to the student, however, it’s always best to go over the rule with your child. Then brainstorm some other words that follow that rule and then write them on the whiteboard together.
For example, one of the phonics rules for February focuses on the letter y at the end of the word. Brainstorm other words with the long e sound at the end of the word and see if they’re spelled with a y.
Make a list and then place them in the correct column. Visuals are always helpful!
