June Calendar Skills Printables

It's June!  It's June!
Summer will be here soon!
Did I speak too soon?

We are so close to the end of the school year that I can smell it now!  How many more weeks of school do you have?  Is your last day before Memorial Day?  For some of us in the United States, school is still in session well into June.  A few fortunate folks get to have school all year through!

If you're part of the "School-In-June-Club", you might like the freebies I made to help first graders with calendar skills.   The first freebie shown is a June 2013 with the numerals printed on the calendar.  The second freebie another June 2013 calendar.  This one has most of the numerals missing.  The children can write in the missing numerals.  The final item is a mixed review of a few calendar concepts.

Calendar concepts align with the Common Core standards for the first grade math under the Measurement and Data strand:  CCSS.Math.Content1.MD.C.4

When using the June calendar with your students, the teacher can dictate information to the children.  Then have the children draw a symbol in the appropriate boxes.  Your students will need to draw small pictures as there are six rows in the June calendar I created this year.  Here are a few ideas of what you could mark on a June calendar:

*Change the word in bold italic to fit your needs.

1. Say, "Fathers' Day is on June 16th. Draw a fish on June 16th."

2. Say, "The first day of summer is June 21st.  Draw a sun on your calendar for June 21st."

3.  Say, "Our field day is scheduled for June (your date).  Draw a water balloon on June (your date)." 

4. Say, "The awards ceremony is scheduled for June (your date). Draw a star on June (your date)."

5. Say, "The last day of school is June (your date). Draw a sad face on the calendar for June (your date)."

6. Say, "The first day of summer vacation is June (your date). Draw a happy face on the calendar for June (your date)."

For additional depth and complexity, change the language of your dictation.  Here are examples of how the first two dictations could be modified:

1.  Say, "Fathers' Day is on the third Sunday in June. Draw a fish on Fathers' Day."

2.   Say, "The first day of summer is the third Friday in June. Draw a sun on your calendar for the first day of summer."

Aren't the kids cute in the calendar?   I compressed the images above which make them appear a little blurry.  However this seems to help load the page more quickly.  I used graphics from Laura Strickland at to create the calendars. For the calendar with the missing numerals, I used a font style called, "ABC Print" from  I like this font because the appearance of the numerals are consistent with the formation taught in early grades.
