These calendar worksheets display a calendar or selection of calendars and ask the children basic questions like what day is the first of July on, how many Tuesdays are there in April or what is the date 10 days before march 16th? These worksheets are good in that they encourage the students to use their addition and subtraction skills and help them understand the relationship between the different days of a month. These exercises get your children familiar with the concept of dates.
Being able to calculate new dates using only a start date and a number of days is an important ability that is used in more places than you might think. Your holiday is for two weeks and you fly out on October 10th – when do you return? Your course of antibiotice lasts 7 days strating tomorrow – when do you finish the course?
Here is a sample of the kinds of questions your students can look forward to on the calendar worksheets:
- What days is the 1st of July on?
- What is the date 3 weeks after 13th July?
- What date is 10 days before 17th August?
- What day was that?
- You are going on holiday on the 23rd July for 10 days what date and month will you come back?
- You are going on holiday for 3 weeks starting on the 11th July, what day do you come back on?
- Are there more Thursdays in July than August?
