What Are Monthly Calendars? Have you ever wondered how we can keep track of the dates, the days, months, or the upcoming events? There must be something that we use, right? That collection of dates is known as a calendar! Yes, the same calendar you use to mark which day your big presentation is or when your dentist appointment is scheduled. But what is it actually? Let's take a look! A system for the organization of religious, social, commercial, or administrative purposes is known as a calendar. This system is organized by giving names to periods of time, popularly called days, weeks, months, and years. Whenever the date and day are organized as per the month, the calendar is known as a monthly calendar. If the calendar is arranged by January, it will be known as “The Calendar for January.” Each monthly calendar comes with the days, dates, social, and religious events marked on it. And it also has space for you to mark your own important events! These worksheets and lessons help students fully comprehend how to use and manipulate a monthly calendar to their advantage.
