Cyclical Patterns: Months and DaysSeptember 3, 2008 9:05 pm Games and Activities
The concept of the cycle of days and months can be a difficult one for kids to grasp, especially if you tell them that December is the last month of the year, and Saturday/Sunday is the end of the week.
To make them understand that days and months end to begin all over again, write the names of different months on paper plates, and arrange them in a circle on the floor. When you’re teaching her the names of months, let her jump or skip from one plate to the next, instead of memorizing the names of the months verbatim. Do the same for days of the week too. This helps her understand that Monday follows every Sunday, and there is a January waiting after every December.
