Do you know those calendars that are a series of cards, one for each month?

I have one of those on my desk at home.

The cat jumped on my desk while I was at school yesterday and knocked it off on to the floor.

Now they are all muddled up.

I do not know which month is which and I don't know how to put them back in the right order.

Can you help?

Here is a sheet you can print off and cut up into twelve cards, one for each month. Or you could use the interactivity below which allows you to drag the month cards so you can try out your ideas.

Can you put the cards in the right order?
