Engage your children in coloring and learning the days of the week

There are many ways for children to learn the days of the week, from the “days of the week” song to calendar time and during conversation. This activity is to help the children learn in writing what the words look like of each week and gives them room for creativity as they color, cut and glue.

If this is younger preschoolers, you can always precut them out and just have them color them in and work on gluing them together. For older preschoolers, have them say the word as they match them up and a reminder that order is important.
