June Math Problem of the Day Calendar

I know you are probably gearing up for summer and the long awaited break from school, but today I wanted to share a simple way to keep learning over the summer! This June Math Problem of the Day Calendar can be used each day for a quick 5 minutes of math to keep those brains sharp in the midst of swimming pools and sleepovers, and any other summer fun you have planned!

Keep kids brains active this summer with a fun and low prep June Math Problem of the day calendar! This is such an easy way to review math skills over the summer!

*Note: This calendar is from June 2016. You can get a set of summer calendars for 2017 here!

If you’re not familiar with my calendars, let me explain how they work. Each calendar is a simple one page June calendar, with a math problem on each day of the month. The twist is that each day, the solution is equal to the date.

This allows kids to self check, and gives them a chance to prove themselves. Encourage them to write or talk through the solution and provide evidence that it is in fact true (rather than simply writing the solution because they already know the date).

If you are a classroom teacher who will be saying goodbye to your students soon, you may want to print these to send home with parents.

If you’re a parent looking for an easy way to review over the break, this is perfect for you as well! Simple, low prep and fun!

And if the thought of giving your kids math to do everyday sounds like torture, feel free to adjust it to meet your schedule. 🙂

Some ideas for using the calendar over the summer:

  • Have a weekly “Math Monday” where they solve one week of problems at once (this may take 10-20 minutes depending on your child)
  • Have a daily math talk at breakfast (or dinner) where you read the question of the day aloud and solve it orally (no one ever said it had to be written!). If you have more than one child, you could even turn it into a competition to see who can solve it first!

However it works to fit it into your summer fun, I hope it provides a simple and unique way to continue honing those math skills over the summer!

  1. I love this! We homeschool and this will be a fun way to sneak in review this summer. Thank you!!

  2. I am so excited to find your site!!! Would love a july, thank you soooo much!!!

    1. Thank you Kelley! I’m glad you like it, thanks for letting me know you would like a July calendar as well. That’s very helpful! 🙂

  3. Love these & would love July too. I don’t use them as a calendar here but write a message on the back (leading to ‘treasure’) then cut up the problems to be reassembled in order of the answers.

    1. Oh I love that!! What a great idea! Thanks for the feedback, I appreciate it and thanks for sharing another way to use the calendar! 🙂

  4. I am a math interventionist. I plan to correspond with my students over the summer to encourage them to practice skills. A July calendar would be wonderful.
    Thanks for your resources.

  5. I would love a July calendar for K-2…….on the other side of the world we are right in the middle of our year!! Please, please.

  6. So excited to find this. I can’t wait to make it part of our summer routine.

  7. Thank you for your work! My son loves your Problem of the Day! Even though he is sometimes able to guess the answer, we will work together to see how to come up with the answers.

  8. We are getting ready to wrap up our homeschool year so this is just what we need for June to help keep those minds sharp! I would love to see you make one for July also. I found your blog thru homeschoolgiveaways.com freebies newsletter. Thanks for creating this and sharing! 🙂

  9. Mrs. Bethany, this June Problem of the Day Calender is going to really help my children and would you be willing to do a July Problem of the Day Calender because I want my children to still be knowledgeable of the things they were taught during their previous year in schoo as well as any new skills they will gain from your Calender. Thank you!

  10. We would utilize a July calendar!!! My son is 7 and we enjoy doing these together. He does the k-2 version and I do the 3-5 version modeling how to do the problems!

  11. YES! We have been using your math calendars for about 4 months now. We like them. We would use one for July if you get enough interest to make it.

    My son (Kindergarten) quickly caught on to the patterns of the numbers for the dates, so now we cut up the calendar and do the problem and then glue it back on to the right spot on a different blank calendar. Just another idea for those looking for a way to change things up every now and then.

    Thanks again for your hard work and all your ideas!

  12. I would like to use a July one as well. stumbled across this today and want to get it all set up for summer. Thank you for these. ?

  13. Thank you for these calendars, they are such a great fun idea to sneak math in the day outside or the regular lessons. Yes, we’d definitely use July as well.

  14. Thank you so much for this. My girls already did the first 2 weeks of the calendar 🙂 The July calendar would be highly appreciated, especially during summer vacation.

  15. Oh please, yes! I love this! My daughter loves this! Please do a July calendar!

  16. I would use a July calendar. My kids are using them in their math time to keep their brains up during the summer. One just finished Kindergarten and one just finished 5th grade so they are perfect! Thanks!

  17. Both of my girls have enjoyed doing these problem a day calendar sheets. It is a great, multi faceted tool. It would be awesome if you would make one for both July and August if you have time.

    Thank you

  18. My son (6.5 yo) when ask if he wanted a normal calendar or a math one, he scream all happy a math one it’s way more fun!

  19. Yes please! A month of July calendar would be wonderful! I used your calendars last year to keep my kids sharp on their math skills last summer and they loved them! Thank you so much for putting these together!

  20. This is perfect for helping my kids avoid the summer slide. Yes, yes, yes – I would use a July calendar. 🙂

  21. I would love this for July, since my students are not out of school until June 23.

  22. I was looking for math calenders for the summer. Thanks! I would really be interested in a July calender.

  23. This is such a great idea! I am interested in a July and August calendar! My kids will love this and what a fun approach to math practice!

  24. I would love a July calendar! I just discovered this and am going to use with my 8 and 10 year olds to keep them from sliding too much this summer. Thank you!

  25. How do you create these? Would this be something you could utilize for the higher grades? I know its a bit elementary, but I have a 6th, 7th, and 10th grader. I”d like to utilize these, but the math gets exponentially harder in the higher grades.

    1. Hi Heather,

      Yes, this is definitely possible in the higher grades, I simply haven’t had time to create a more challenging set yet. The way I create them is by thinking about topics/problems that will have 1 exact solution, then I write out all the problems on a piece of paper from 1-30 (or 31). I try to make sure there’s a variety of topics and problem types, so it’s not the same thing every single day. It’s a pretty time consuming process, but I do plan to have a set for older kids in the future. 🙂

  26. i love all of your ideas, I have heaps on pintrest if you would like to take a look

    1. Thanks for asking! I do have a set of updated calendars available for purchase for 2018, but not for free. You can learn more about them here:

      Grades K-2: https://gum.co/K2calendars
      Grades 3-5: https://gum.co/345Calendars
      Grades 6-8: https://gum.co/678calendars
      Bundle: https://gum.co/calendarbundle

      I update these each year, so you only have to purchase once and then you will receive an updated version each January. Or of course you can download the free calendars and adjust it for the correct year. 🙂

  27. I would love to have a July math problem of the day calendar for grades 3-5!! This is awesome! Thank you!!
