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.  :)

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her
