I’m currently teaching my students about the days of the week. And I decided to make my own flashcards that I can display in the classroom. So here are my Days of the Week: Free Flashcards!
Aside from using it as a display, I also use these flashcards for games and practice writing.
Included in this blog post are three sets of days of the week free flashcards. The design is pretty much the same except for the fonts.
If you have suggestions or if you want to request for a specific design, do let me know. I’m always open to new ideas.
Apart from using the flashcards, I also teach the days of the week through games, songs and stories.
Ideas on How to Teach The Days of The Week
1. 7 Days of the Week Song
There are seven days,
There are seven days,
There are seven days of the week.
2. Keyword Game
- Ask your students to pair up and then put an eraser in their middle.
- Set one day of the week as a keyword (e.g. Tuesday).
- Say one day of the week out loud while clapping rhythmically. Ask the students to repeat after you.
- When they hear you say the keyword, they have to grab the earser. Whoever grabs it first is the winner.
- Change the keyword and continue with the game.
3. Post-Its Game
- Make a group of seven
- Put a post-it with the day of the week written on it on the back of each student.
- Ask them to arrange themselves accordingly.
4. Storybook: The Very Hungry Caterpillar
5. Secret Message Game
- Post the days of the week flashcards on the board.
- Divide the class into two groups and ask them to line up.
- Call the last students in line and whisper a day of the week (e.g. Wednesday).
- Tell them to whisper the keyword to the next person in line. They do this until the message reaches the first person in line.
- The first person then has to go to the board and touch the correct flashcard. The first group to do it wins the game.
Those are my top activities for teaching the days of the week. They are guaranteed fun and educational.
