Days of the Week Worksheet 1

This tracing worksheet will help your child learn the order and spellings of the names of the days.

Depending on your goals, this will help your child recognize them as sight words and begin to learn their spelling. 

The spelling really shouldn’t be focused on until they are first grade students. But whenever you do teach the spelling, I would break each word into pieces.  

For example: WED-NES-day, SAT-UR-Day, etc. 

Days of the Week Worksheet 2

This simple worksheet will have your student working on handwriting skills.

To complete, have her carefully write each day of the week without the use of dotted lines.

Remind the student to use capital letters when writing the days of the week – they are proper nouns.

Days of the Week Worksheet 3

This simple activity will help your student practice the days of the week order.

To comple, the child must draw a line from each number to the appropriate day of the week. 

Before they begin, have them practice saying the names of the week in order several times. Read the days to them as needed.

****To make this reusable, place it in a page protector and use dry erase markers to complete the activity. 

Days of the Week Worksheet 4

This is such a cute activity to learn the order of the days!

After the child cuts out each circle at the bottom of the page, encourage him to place them in order on the train.

Only glue them down once they are in the correct order. Display it in your home or on a bulletin board for the rest of the week.

To make this a reusable activity, put velcro dots on the circles. This way you can place the days on the train cars out of order – and your child can practice putting them in the right place over and over.

Days of the Week Worksheet 5

This is another great review activity that will encourage your child to get hands-on!

Allow her to cut out each strip of paper (or use a paper cutter for more students) and put them in order on a separate piece of construction paper. 

Another option would be to glue the strips to tissue paper rolls. Then work on mixing them up and having the child put them back in order.

Days of the Week Worksheet 6

This word search puzzle is a great way to work on the spelling of each name of the day. 

It also introduces the concept of yesterday, today, and someday.

Your kid may already know those terms form regular language use, but ask specific questions to see if he understands these words. 

Days of the Week Worksheet 7

And here is the answer key for quick reference and checking.

Days of the Week Worksheet 8

This is another fun cut and paste worksheet to help your child learn to recognize the days of the week…and put them in order!

To complete, have your child cut out the rectangles and glue them to the calendar pages in order.

Days of the Week Worksheet 9

This is by far my favorite of the printable activities!

Kids can make their own days of the week chart by drawing the biggest, best, or favorite thing they did each day.

I love that this helps them to see the passage of time and associate different things with different days. 

This interactive activity is another wonderful project to display.

Days of the Week Worksheet 10

This last worksheet is a great way to work with your young learner on the order of the days. 

Read to your child each of the clues to solve the puzzle. Depending on your child’s abilities, provide a calendar to let your child find the answer.

A word bank is provided to help with accurate spelling.

4 More Strategies For Teaching The Days of the Week

The concept of time is a very abstract thing to kids of this age, so I have a few different activities and fun learning ideas to help you out!

1. Display A Calendar

 

By far and away the best thing you can do is display a monthly calendar and work on calendar skills every morning.

If possible, display one that your child can interact with. You can find the calendar I use with my own kids in my list of Kindergarten Essentials.

At the beginning of the day, get in the habit of pointing out the month, day of the week, and year. 

Talk about what you did yesterday, what you’ll do today, and what you might do tomorrow. To keep things fresh, have the child start the day off by calling out the day of the week, etc. 

If this starts to get tedious, do it every other day or as often as needed.

Doing this calendar work on a regular basis will help your child tremendously to see time in a more concrete way.

2. Days of the Week Song

My two younger kids LOVE learning things through music. It has a special way of sticking in their mind without feeling like “work.”

We had much success with a months of the year song, so I ended up making up my own song to teach the days of the week.

I will not subject you to a video of me singing, but I would encourage you to think up your own song or check out the above video from The Singing Walrus.

3. Days of the Week Book

Another great option to reinforce this concept is a super cute book – “Cookie’s Week” by Cindy Ward.

The simple story goes through a week with Cookie as she gets into quite a bit of mischief on each day. 

I would highly recommend reading the book a few times and letting your child act out a short play based on the book. 

All they need to do is say the day of the week and act out what they or the cat would do. 

Perfect, hands-on learning fun!

4. Reinforce The Concept With Free Worksheets

After doing some or all of the days of the week activities, your kid will be ready to apply their new skill!

The extra practice is a great way to help solidify what they’re learning.
