Take the quiz.
NOTE: Don't abbreviate months except in tables or forms where there is limited space.
The months April, May, June, and July do not have abbreviated forms.
Here's a neat little poem written by Sara Coleridge that will help you learn the months of the year.
January brings the snow,
Makes our feet and fingers glow
February brings the rain,
Thaws the frozen lake again
March brings breezes, loud and shrill,
To stir the dancing daffodil
April brings the primrose sweet,
Scatters daisies at our feet
May brings flocks of pretty lambs
Scipping by their fleecy dams.
June brings tulips, lilies, roses,
Fills the children's hands with posies.
Hot July brings cooling showers,
Apricots, and gillyflowers.
August brings the sheaves of corn;
Then the harvest home is borne.
Warm September brings the fruit;
Sportsmen then begin to shoot.
Fresh October brings the pheasant;
Then to gather nuts is pleasant.
Dull November brings the blast;
Then the leaves are whirling fast.
Chill December brings the sleet,
Blazing fire, and Christmas treat.
