Cyclical Patterns: Months and Days

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.

Have fun!

    Great idea! I, too, teach a preschooler at home. We also used the “Barney” song, “There are seven days in a week” which is a catchy tune and very easy for my two year old to remember. Another song I used when I taught preschool was the “Months of the Year” song. I will be happy to share.

    I just recently found your website. Wow! What a great site! I have a preschool and I’m always looking for new ideas! I thought this cyclic idea was wonderful! They learn the names of the days easily, but understanding the concept is much harder! This will help with “if today is___, tomorrow will be __.” Thanks for the tip!
