## Ways to remember how many days in a month

First you should keep in mind that there are 28 days in the month of February. Then you only need your hand or fist to do deal with the 3 numbers – 28, 29, 30 and 31 days.

Hold out your left hand to make a fist. Then there is a trick: knuckles stand for months with 31 days, and the spaces between your knuckles stand for months with 30 days or 28 days in February (every four years in February there are 29 days when in a leap year).

Count from the side of your pinky finger. The first knuckle is January, then follows a space – February, a 2nd knuckle stands for March. You can count all the way to July on your left hand.

## 1 month is how many days?

Then there are two options to choose from: count again for the rest 5 months on your left hand or continue counting with your right hand. If you are still using your left fist, remember to start counting from the knuckle on your index finger, even though you have just counted it for July. If you continue counting on your right hand, make sure to start from the side of your index finger, not pinky finger.
