7 day Perpetual Calendar

Bring the concept of time into the real world for young children with the 7 day Perpetual Calendar. 

This calendar explains the importance of learning the days of the week. It also includes tips you can use to help your child understand the weekly routine.

An important part of learning about the days of the week is understanding the terms ‘yesterday’, ‘today’ and ‘tomorrow’. This enables your child to learn that ‘yesterday’, ‘today’, and ‘tomorrow’ changes daily.

Learning the names of the days of the week requires rote memorisation - a memorisation technique based on repetition.  Let’s face it, that can be boring for young children. The trick is to find fun activities to make learning easier and tangible, like singing a song and flipping the pages of this calendar.

One way kinder teachers use is singing this ‘Days of the Week’ song to the tune of ‘The Addams Family’.

Days of the week *snap, snap*

Days of the week *snap, snap*

There’s Monday and there’s Tuesday

There’s Tuesday and there’s Wednesday

There’s Thursday and there’s Friday

and Saturday makes it a week!

Days of the week *snap, snap*

Another way to teach your child to remember the days of the week is to talk about their routines for the week.  For example, you can mention that “we go to swimming lessons on Saturdays” or “we visit Nanna and Pop on Sundays”.

Preschoolers understand days in terms of ‘sleeps’. Each calendar page flip is one ‘sleep’, so when your child asks you how many sleeps until they see their grandparents, you can flip the pages and count the remaining days together.

Once children have learnt the days of the week, they can make reasonable predictions about what is going to happen on a particular day and avoid being constantly surprised.
