Learning the days of the week doesn’t have to be complicated. In fact there’s a lot of resources out there to help you start to explore learning the days of the week with your kids (whether at home or in the classroom).
And whether you teach from Sunday being the first day of the week or Monday, these resources will work!
Download any of my displays (that contain the days of the week), and use them to:
- Sequence the days of the week
- Play a game of memory (printing off multiple copies)
- Play a game of fish in small groups
- Add a paper clip to each of them and go fishing with a magnetic fishing rod and then sequence out the days
- Read books that include the days of the week in them (The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Diary of a Wombat are amazing!) and then use the days of the week, plus the kids drawings to sequence out the story line
- Label the day that it is, and talk about varied things like – what’s the weather like, what’s the date of today, what month are we in and so on
Learning the days of the week is important as it allows kids to build on their awareness of what happens in a day, as well as learn the routine of what happens on varied days, such as maybe on a Tuesday they go to the park after school.
This activity can be easily replicated with the months of the year too!
