Good for starting discussions on appropriate use of a calendar and reading calendars correctly. I have used this resource with a low level functional skills group (E1-E3) as students were unable to give the months in the correct order and struggled to think about which seasons were associated with each month etc.
When introducing the calendar we identified what students might be up to in those months and what the weather might be like. Some students sketched reminders on the borders of the pages.
The dates in the worksheet were added and the group were then asked to come up with other special times/times. The ideas they offered included: birthdays, Halloween, Eid, Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Mother's Day, Father's Day, International Awareness Days etc. I had on hand a list of awareness days (wiki) in case they couldn't think of anything. These were added to the calendar, making sure we had at least one day added for each month of the calendar.
After separating the class in to teams, each team posed their own pre written questions to the others, scoring points to any team who managed the correct answer. Questions included...'what day of the week is 5 days after Christmas' 'What date is the second Monday in August?' Whose birthday is a week before 13th September? How many full weeks are in...? What is the date 5 weeks after 3rd February etc. Teams had to count through weeks and months, and locate the months quickly within the calendar. 5 points awarded to the first team to answer 4 to the 2nd and so on.
The worksheet has dates for 2016 and 2017. The calendar can be changed using MS Word as long as you are using a moderately modern version.
