Months of the Year Order

Write the names of the months on the sticks. I used association when I chose the colors. We are in the Southern Hemisphere, so blue was for Summer, orange for Autumn, red for Winter and green for Spring.

When assessing, I would ask questions like: “Why do you think the Spring sticks are green?”, “Why are there only 3 of each color?”, “Do we celebrate Christmas when it is a red month or blue month?” to see how the learners reason, make associations and inference too. I also ask which month the child birthday is, to see if they know and tell them mine as a way of getting to know each other better, making the assessment informal.

  • Love this idea, and was also interested to learn more about the color choices you made. I read the post carefully as I was wondering why green would not have been chosen for spring, to be reminded that my way of experiencing the world is not the only way!! 😀 THAT is a great lesson in itself for us all.
