# 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!

*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. ðŸ™‚

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!

## June Math Problem of the Day Calendar:

This download includes two different calendars, one geared towards kids who have finished grades K-2 and one geared towards kids who have finished grades 3-5.

Topics covered on the K-2 calendar:

• Place value
• Skip counting
• Simple multiplication
• Comparing numbers with greater than and less than
• Time (new topic!)
• Word problems

Topics covered on the 3-5 calendar:

• Addition and subtraction of 3-4 digit numbers
• Multiplication and division
• Place value
• Multi step problems
• Word problems

I’ve enjoyed putting together these calendars, and look forward to creating more in the coming months, but I do wonder if it will be beneficial to make one for July?

*If you would like and use a math calendar in the month of July, can you comment below? I am happy to create them, but if the general consensus is that it wouldn’t be used, I will just be back with a new calendar for August. Thanks!*

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! ðŸ™‚

5. Lori says:

I would love a July calendar to use in summer school.

6. ann says:

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.

7. Jenny says:

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.

12. Jen says:

I’d like a July one too! Thanks for sharing!

13. Jenny says:

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! ðŸ™‚

14. Irene says:

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!

15. Erin says:

This is great! I’d love a July calendar!

16. Amanda says:

Fantastic! Thanks! Would love to see more of these. ?

18. Michelle says:

Would love to use this throughout the summer – July would be great!

19. Audra says:

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!

20. Patty Hickerson says:

This is great!!! I would use it as a good breakfast activity.

21. Jennie says:

Thank you! Would love a July version!

22. Lindy says:

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.

23. Kayla says:

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. ?

24. Maya says:

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.

25. Keena Williams says:

Yes I would love to use one for the month of July

26. Mariska says:

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

31. Hannah says:

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.

39. Andrea says:

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!

40. Heather says:

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. ðŸ™‚

41. Margaret says:

This sounds like a great idea. We’ll definitely use it!

42. janet says:
