Math - 2019-20

K.8 - Calendar

The student will 

  • investigate the passage of time by reading and interpreting a calendar.

Adopted: 2016


  • So that I know when special days like holidays and birthdays are.
  • So that I know what resource I have today
  • So that I know what days to go to school


  • Practical situations are appropriate to develop a sense of the interval of time between events (e.g., club or team meetings occur every week on Monday, there is a week between meetings).
  • The calendar is a way to represent units of time (e.g., days, weeks, months, and a year).
  • Using a calendar develops the concept of a day as a 24-hour period rather than a period of time from sunrise to sunset.¬†


The student will use problem solving, mathematical communication, mathematical reasoning, connections, and representations to

  • Name the twelve months of the year.
  • Name the seven days in a week.
  • Determine the day before and after a given day (e.g., yesterday, today, tomorrow).
