September, our ninth month, marks the traditional start of the new school year. To achieve in school it takes confidence, and to have confidence, it takes knowledge. Here is a fun piece of knowledge that you can teach your students. It comes in three parts.
1. September (from the Latin septem, “seven”) was originally the seventh of ten months.
2. March (from the Latin Martius) was originally the first month of the year.
3. Around 153 BC January and February were added to the beginning of the year… And that is how September became the ninth month.
