As I was preparing for Wednesday’s Homeschool Math Club Games & Activities meeting, I remembered my old math calendars and thought, that would be a fun activity to offer. So I pulled up the files and discovered that the days of the week matched perfectly. What a cool coincidence!
So in case you missed the math calendars last year, or in case it’s been long enough that your children have forgotten, here are the “new” versions:
Umm Ahmad created an easier version for young students:
How to Use the Math Calendars
Post the calendar on your refrigerator. Use each math puzzle as a daily review “mini-quiz” for your children (or yourself).
In the classroom:
Post today’s calculation on the board as a warm-up puzzle. Encourage your students to make up “Today is…” puzzles of their own.
As a puzzle:
Cut the calendar squares apart, then challenge your students to arrange them in ascending (or descending) order.
Make up problems for the next calendar!

If I change the September/October headings, when is the next time these calendar pages will work?

These are GREAT! What a fun way to practice our math daily. It’s more advanced than our girls, but it gives me the perfect tool to introduce these lessons, and practice them. THANK YOU for taking the time to put this together. 🙂
Sometimes I find that my kids like math better when it’s too advanced for them — like trying on Dad’s shoes or big sister’s makeup. 🙂
WOW…AND I learned something new! I SWEAR I never learned the symbol (!) for factorial! I thought you were just EXCITED about Sept. 3! 😉 Thanks for expanding MY horizons, too!
Glad to be of service!
This is one of my favorite things about homeschooling — there’s always something new to learn.
Thanks for submitting this to the Hands-on Homeschool Carnival. I have received your submission since I’m the next host (Oct.).
Thanks for adding a link to my calendar in your post, i just noticed it now 🙂 thanks for this blog, great blog!
How wonderful! I think this will be a perfect “1 page Review” for my high schooler. I love the puzzle activity – great applications. It will work perfectly for all her science physics formula too! Thanks!
This is a great idea! It’s my first time hearing about a math calendar. I’m definitely going to try this out when I become a teacher. This is really cool.
I’m glad you enjoyed it, Keisha. Math calendars are a great project, because your students can participate at any level — the equations for each day can be as simple or complex as the students wish. Remind them to consider geometric puzzles, number patterns, and one-sentence word problems, too.
This is a really cool idea. Thanks for sharing.
