Why We Love It
These months of the year worksheets are an engaging way to work on base understanding of the 12 months of the year.

About the Worksheets
These five worksheets are great for students just beginning to learn the months of the year or who already have a grasp and just need a little refresher.
So grab a pencil, some crayons, scissors, and a glue stick, and you’ll be ready to go!
Cut & Paste Months of the Year in Order: Students cut out the months of the year, then place or glue them in the correct order in the numbered spaces provided.
Months of the Year Coloring: Students color in a recognizable picture to represent each month of the year.
The pictures are easy to recognize and can be used to further conversations about the weather, different holidays like New Year’s Eve, Valentine’s Day, Thanksgiving, and other special events that mark the months!
Months of the Year Sentences: Students practice the months of the year by reading sentences and filling in the blank with the proper month.
They will answer what the current, previous, and next month is, what their favorite month is, when their birthday is, and what months they do and don’t attend school.
Tracing and Writing Months of the Year: Students will first trace and then write the months of the year using proper letter formation and capitalization.
This helps them familiarize children with spelling while they practice writing the words, which is sometimes strange (like the extra letter r in February)!
Abbreviate the Months: Students will practice writing the number and abbreviation for each month.
This is important because children will often see dates written in numeric or abbreviated form in everyday life.
The months on this worksheet are listed out of order, so children really have to think to find the numeric answer!
Tips & Info
- We like to introduce the months of the year and use these worksheets in the beginning of the school year, and then cover it again in early January!
- A great way for children to start learning the months of the year in order is by singing a catchy song.
