Are you trying to teach your kids the days of the week? It takes a lot of repetition and practice. Discover books, songs, socks, and organizers to help.

My daughter loves her days of the week socks and I think they are a huge help!

At night before bed, she sets out the next day’s socks.

Plus, we read Chickens to the Rescue every . . . single . . . night. (It is great but every day?)

Here are some of our days of the week ideas and suggestions for learning and fun!

Days of the Week

Picture Books

Teaching the days of the week requires us to introduce the concept of days having names and going in a specific order. Use these picture books to get started.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar
by Eric Carle
On Sunday morning, the caterpillar wakes up and looks for food. Every day he eats and eats and eats until he’s humongous. Then, guess what happens? Not only does this book give readers practice with the days of the week, but it’s also a fun book that teaches about how butterflies are made.

Socks  and Underwear

I think these socks and underwear help reinforce learning the days of the week. My youngest loved wearing the right one for the corresponding day. What will your kids think?

  1. Singing about the days also is a favorite of my students. My personal favorite is “7 Days of the Week” sung to the tune of Clementine. I often hear them singing softly to themselves when they are completing calendar work.

  2. My mom used to have days of the week dishtowels. I love the socks. Speaking of books, I also like Cookie’s Week.

  3. We have the days of the weeks underwear for girls–found them at Target. 🙂 My daughter thinks they are great fun.
