Days of the Week

Your child will be expected to be able to read the names of the days of the week when he/she arrives in First Grade.  In Kindergarten, the calendar is part of daily math and learning the parts of the calendar include learning to read the days of the week.  Many classes sing songs to teach the names of the days of the week, but not many children can identify the names of the days of the week when they see them located away from the calendar.  You might want to add the 7 days of the week (Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday) to the list of sight words for your child to practice at home.
