DAYS OF WEEK
Submitted by Shirley
Have the children name the days of the week on the calendar and sing a 7 days of the week song.  The teacher can make large cards for the days of the week and have children hold them up when they recite the days of the week.
 The children also parade with the cards to music and sing the days of the week.

Tune: For He's A Jolly Good Fellow
There are seven days in a week
Seven days in a week
Seven days in a week
And I can say them all.
Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday
Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday
Saturday is the last day
And I can say them all.
Then after we sing this song we name the days of the week by counting them out on our fingers. As we hold up the fingers we say, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Then we count the fingers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7. Then sing the song again.
