Another aspect of time that young students need to master is the calendar.  They should know the names of the months and what order the months go in.

One great way to start talking about months is to use a huge calendar and have the students, as a group, try to fill in special days throughout the year. When is Christmas? When does summer start?  When is 4th of July? When are their birthdays?  If students do not know their birthdays, have each of them find out their birthday so that they can come back and add it to the calendar.  Each day, talk about a different month and what is special about it. 

Songs about the months of the year often help students remember the order of the months.
