Pre-school and kindergarten-aged children love learning about the days of the week. It is so rewarding for them to know what the days are (and in order!), to point them out on calendars, and be able to tell everyone what day it is! Below, we have a whole bunch of free printables–50 to be exact–to help you teach your child(ren) or your class all about the days of the week. There are two different learning methods we’ve used:
1. The first type of printable includes days of the week worksheets and activity sheets. These are the kind of learning activities that children do at their table or desk. Whether it’s coloring, matching, filling in the blanks, or cutting and pasting, each activity or worksheet is hands-on and interactive–a sure way to keep them engaged. Each one helps them learn the days of the week, and some of them go a little bit further by teaching them concepts like “today”, “yesterday”, “tomorrow”, etc.
2. The second type of printable available below are signs and interactive displays that you would put around your classroom, or schoolroom if you are homeschooling. You could simply cut them out and put them around the room or on a board, or you could use them as part of a morning routine and have the children recite what the day is, what yesterday was, and what tomorrow will be. These can also be helpful as children are learning to write the date, in case they still need help with spelling the days of the week.
All you need to do now is select which printable(s) below will work best for you, click on the image, download the printable PDF file to your computer, and print! It really is just that easy!
Whether you choose to use one teaching method/printable type or the other (or both!) we know that these days of the week printables will be an excellent tool for helping children learn all about Sundays and Saturdays and all the days in between!
