May Teacher Resource Guide

May is a late Spring month in the northern hemisphere when the fields are aglow with flowers, the skies are blue, and the temperatures are warm without summer heat - a month that has inspired poets and has been enjoyed by nearly everyone throughout history. Everything is still fresh and new, the birds are nesting, and gardens are just sprouting with the promise of tasty vegetables soon to come.

Because of the arrangement of the calendar, no other month of the year starts on the same day as May in a specific year. That means, for example, if May starts on Wednesday, no other month in that year will start on Wednesday. There is only one other month in the year with this feature - the immediately following month, June. This was not a deliberate design decision when the calendar was made - it is just an interesting accident that came from using a seven-day week in a 365-day year. Read More About The Month of May
