Learning Day's of the Week with Underwear

A couple weeks ago I took my daughter shopping to pick out some new underwear since hers were a bit snug.  She quickly picked out day's of the week underwear. Raise your hand if you had them when you were little, (HAND RAISED)!  I did not realized when I purchased the underwear how much learning took place with them.

Now I explained to her that it would be OK to wear them on the wrong day but do you think she wants to do that??  NOPE!!

Every morning this has been our routine...

Selah- "Mom, what day is it?"

After I respond she says, "hmmm what letter does that start with?"

Then I say the word again and sound it out.  After she gets the sound and letter right she runs to her room and finds the right pair.

So we have worked on letters and sounds and the order of days.  It is so easy to say "yesterday was _____, today is ______, and tomorrow is______.  Something that will become very familiar as she heads to 4K in a couple weeks.  We have also started singing more day's of the week songs.

Here is one that I learned a long time ago while working at a daycare in college:

Days of the Week (Sung to the Adam's Family)

Days of the Week (Snap Snap) 
Days of the week (Snap Snap) 
Days of the Week, Days of the week, Days of the week. (Snap Snap) 

There is Sunday, 
and there's Monday
There's Tuesday
and there's Wednesday.
There's Thursday
and there's Friday
and then there's Saturday

(Do chorus again)  

Watch this youtube video of the song.  
                                                         



You never know where you can make learning fun!!  I encourage you to look for more opportunities to teach your child.  :)
