Help preschoolers and kindergartners learn the days of the week with these 3 fun, FREE Days Of The Week Printables.
Preschool is the perfect time to start teaching children about the days of the week. It can be difficult at first because some children at preschool age, still don’t totally understand the concept of time. If your child is asking, ‘what day is it?’, this is one clue that they may be ready to learn about weeks. Activities just like this days of the week set are perfect. These engaging activities will not only help you introduce the names of the days but also help children practice.
Even if children do not grasp the concept of time completely, knowing the days of the week in order will benefit them greatly when they do start understanding time.
If pre k students don’t learn the days of the week, they will learn the days of the week activities for kindergarten
Days Of The Week Printables
Parents, teachers, and homeschoolers will that there are three different activities in this set. The first is a Gumball Days Of The Week matching game, a color by name rainbow, and a Yesterday and Tomorrow worksheet.
These three days of the week activities for kids can be prepared together or separate. They are SUPER simple to get ready. The first decision to make is if you want these activities to be used over and over, like in a classroom, or just one time.
Days of the Week Activites
Print the gumball machine page and days of the week gumballs in color on cardstock or laminate for durability if you will be using it in a classroom center over and over again. Print the color by code and free days of the week worksheet in black and white.
You will also need a writing utencil like pencil, colored pencils, crayons, markers, scissors and glue (if you want to permanently affix the gumballs in the candy machine).
Cut the gumballs out. Laminate all of the sheets and the gumballs. If you want to use velcro dots, use those on the back of the gumballs and in each white gumball.
Days of the Week Worksheets
The color by day name is just as it sounds. Use the chart at the bottom of the page to guide which colors go into which space: yellow, red, orange, green, light blue, and dark blue. When all is done, the picture will be adorably colored!
For the yesterday and today worksheet, work through the chart line by line. This is a perfect opportunity to talk about the days of the week, the order they are in and what comes before or after.
If you would like to make the preschool worksheets reusable, simply laminate the pages (or stick in a page protector) and have pre k students use dry erase markers or dry erase crayons to fill in the chart. Then wipe it clean and use again!
