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
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.
Chickens to the Rescue by John Himmelman
We love, love, love this hilarious story about the farm’s chickens who do everything…except on Sunday.
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.
Cookie’s Week by Cindy Ward
Cookie the cat gets into trouble every day in this simple yet adorable story with delightful illustrations and repetition.
Monday the Bullfrog by Matthew Van Fleet
A hand puppet and a book in one! Although this is very small, it’s a fun introduction to the days of the week.
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?
