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!

Days of the Week Activities and Books

Are you trying to teach your kids the seven days of the week? It takes a lot of repetition and practice. Find the best activities, books, and songs to help!

Incidentally, my daughter loves her days of the week socks, and I think they are a huge help. Each night before bed, she sets out the next day’s socks. Talk about practice and repetition.

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 resources we like that help my kids learn the sequence of the days as well as other activities for learning and fun!

Days of the Week Songs

Singing songs is one of the most memorable ways for children to learn!

As you sing, watch as your kids and students remember the names and sequence — it’s amazing.

As a parent commented on this post, you’ll hear your children singing the songs to remember the names and order, even when they’re older. I saw that with my own kids, often. (And I still do for the months of the year.)

If a song is catchy, it’s going to be easy to recall and remember. (Pro tip: When your kids are older, use music to help them remember multiplication facts!)

  1. Barney’s “There Are Seven Days
  2. Kids TV123 “Days of the Week
  3. Learning Games for Kids “Days of the Week”
  4. Days of the Week song to the tune of Clementine:

There are seven days, there are seven days, 
There are seven days in a week.
There are seven days, there are seven days, 
There are seven days in a week.

Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday,
Thursday, Friday, Saturday.
Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday,
Thursday, Friday, Saturday.

Be sure to add movement when you’re singing! Dance, hop, clap, and stomp. Adding this active learning component will increase retention.

As I mention below, you can also learn how to spell each day with songs like this one.

Days of the Week Books

Teaching the days of the week requires us to introduce the concept of days having names and going in a specific order.

Chickens to the Rescue by John Himmelman
We 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.

Little Sunny Sunshine / Sol Solecito
by Canticos and Susie Jaramillo
Learn the words in English and Spanish with this darling lyrical book asking the sun to warm you up, illustrated with the adorable Canticos chicks.

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.

Today is Monday
by Eric Carle
If you like silly stories, read this cumulative story of food, animals, and days of the week!

Seven Blind Mice
by Ed Young
What is by the pond? One by one, the mice venture out to investigate. On Monday, Red Mouse goes first. They each explore different parts of the elephant — and readers will see that they’re all partially right.

In Plain Sight by Richard Jackson, illustrated by Jerry Pinkney
Every day after school, Sophie’s grandpa hides something for her to find. Usually, it’s simple, a paper clip or rubber band, and it’s always in plain sight. Sophie decides to hide something for grandpa, too —  herself!

I Had a Favorite Dress by Boni Ashburn, illustrated by Julia Denos
When the little girl’s favorite dress that she wears on Tuesday becomes too short, her mom finds a creative way to repurpose the dress into a shirt that she wears on Wednesdays.

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?

Days of the Week Organizers

Are you noticing a pattern of immersion to learn this concept?

We are going to give kids ALL sorts of opportunities to learn the days of the week!

Next, try a weekly organizer like this one.

Days and Months Calendar Time

Every day, look at the days of the week in a sequence. Circle, highlight, or point to what day it is today.

Magnetic Calendar for Home

Magnetic Calendar for School

When children understand the weekly calendar, look at a monthly calendar like kindergarten classes do together.

Teach kids how to read the monthly calendar.

Ask and answer these questions: What is today’s date? (This helps practice numbers.) What is the month? What is the day of the week?

Writing Activities

Learn how to spell and write the words! You’ll want to teach about capital letters at the beginning of these proper nouns. Sing the spellings. Practice writing the spelling.

You’ll eventually want to teach their abbreviations — that’s not necessary until they’re older.

Practice sequencing by writing stories about things that happen on different days! (Stories like The Hungry Caterpillar!)
