For middle-aged children, the concept of "Monday" or "Sunday" is abstract and vague, because they cannot be touched at all. However, they hear about them almost every day, from this the children have such questions as what are these - the days of the week.
In order to explain to your child the concept of the words "days of the week", you need to turn the learning process into a game, and not into boring and dull lessons.
Try drawing a calendar with animals, where each animal represents the days of the week. The child can not only touch them, but also play with them. The animals should be arranged in the order of the next day.
You can make a little train with your child, where each carriage will be signed from Monday to Sunday. To do this, make cars of different colors (it is better to take the colors of the rainbow in order, then your child will be able to learn them at the same time), sign them not only with names, but also with numbers from one to seven. This, plus everything, will help you learn numbers.
It is worthwhile for the child to come up with a case for every day. For example, on Monday you will go to music lessons, on Tuesday - to kindergarten, on Wednesday - modeling classes, on Thursday - to ballroom dancing, on Friday - to a theatrical performance, on Saturday - a trip to grandma's, and on Sunday the whole family will go to dacha you will bake pancakes.
Hang a calendar on the wall in your child's room. Where every morning he will have to independently move the frame to the required day, and thereby you will prompt him what it is called.
You can make a "dial", which will indicate the days of the week. Let the child move the arrows on these days.
The most effective way is to learn a poem or tongue twister about the days of the week. If necessary, you can tell proverbs or make riddles about them.
Find cartoons about the days of the week, review them with him. For example, in the cartoon "Mickey Mouse Club" - "Minnie's Calendar" the mouse jumps and sings about it.
Sew a large seven-petal flower with Velcro and let your toddler pull them off every day, repeating the day of the week.
Try to explain to your little one that there are weekdays (Monday through Friday) and weekends (Saturday through Sunday). The designation of these words is also an important task for a child to know. Therefore, tell us that Monday means that it comes after a week, the name clearly shows the words “do not”, that is, it goes after the day of “doing nothing”. Tuesday is the second day. Wednesday - midweek. Thursday is the fourth day. Friday is the fifth day. The word Saturday means the end of all affairs, and Sunday is called so in honor of the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Try to turn learning into exciting fun and, whenever possible, remind about it, whether you are out for a walk or visiting.
