Days of the Week
Help your students learn new concepts with this days of the week song. Children’s understanding of time, also known as temporal understanding, is not meaningful for children below first grade (Friedmann, 2000). Instead, the temporal concepts such as before lunch and after nap have much greater meaning. The learning goals associated with calendar time are more heavily weighted in math rather than time for this reason. Knowing what the date is i.e. January 2nd, 2016, is much less meaningful to young children than once though. Therefore, the purpose of knowing the days of the week is more rooted in vocabulary building than expecting children to know that tomorrow that if today is Monday, tomorrow is Tuesday. This days of the week song is a great way to introduce your students to this new vocabulary and prepare them to understand time later in their development.
Days of the Week is a fun way to start your circle time and get your students ready for the day. Help them learn the days of the week and use them in conversation later in the day. The more they use these new words, the faster they will remember them. Soon enough, they will have mastered this days of the week song! With this download, you will receive:
