This listing is for a spinner to assist with teaching the English names for the months of the year.
This is a great resource to use with Level 3 Unit 1 - A Year on Earth. You can use this to teach the sentence patterns:
What month is it? It is____________.
What month comes before _________? ___________ comes before ________.
What month comes after_________? ___________ comes after________.
How many months are there in a year? There are ________ months in a year.
Students often have difficulty understanding the difference between before and after. It can also help to reinforce the structure of the sentence. Often when asked, "What month comes before February?" The student will respond "February comes before March," instead of "January comes before February." Students often have a difficult time understanding that the sentence ends with the month in question. I like to use this spinner as a visual was to point to the month after and model that sentence clearly!
