While there are 31 days in the hill months, there are 30 days in the valley months. You only need to count from the first knuckle.

Telling children every day about the days will help them in remembering the days. They will also learn the meaning of yesterday, today and tomorrow. It is also advisable to teach them that the next month starts the day after the previous month ends and instructs them to make calendars including the national and state holidays.
