1.  Day Of The Week Flower

This worksheet is a perfect way of introducing the days of the week in a fun way. The days have been written on the petals around the flower. At the bottom of the page, it explains what petals should be colored in which color, specific to the day of the week written on it.

By introducing new subjects in a fun and engaging way students will respond to it better and be more likely to continue to engage as they learn more about the days of the week. Make sure each student has the necessary colors to complete the worksheet.

2. The Days Of The Week Rainbow

This rainbow is a fun way of making this subject area more engaging as students are given the chance to be creative and color the rainbow however they wish to.

This also gives them the chance to follow the teacher’s voice as they point to each day of the week and repeat the name after their teacher. 

By repeating the names of the week and having students point to the name students will be better able to recognize certain words and they will subconsciously be earning the spelling also as they can see what the word should look like. 

This worksheet also gives the chance for students to practice their writing as they complete the writing activity, which is what day is the day you are completing this worksheet. This worksheet could be completed every morning to give students the chance to write each day of the week.

3. Trace The Days Of The Week 

Tracing is a fantastic way of helping students not only improve their writing skills but also their spelling skills. This worksheet gives students the opportunity to trace the days of the week.

5. Unscramble The Days

Have your students unscramble the letters of the wheel to uncover the days of the week. Using worksheets that show the days of the week on a wheel is a great way of teaching kids that the days of the week are a constant cycle and that when Sunday ends it is Monday again.

Grasping this concept can be difficult and so we recommend teaching the days before explaining how it constantly repeats itself.

The activities included are tracing, following the lines, coloring, spelling, unscrambling letters to find the correct spelling, and lastly, these worksheets also teach the abbreviations that each day is referred to.

This is useful for students as on most electronic calendars the day of the week is referenced in an abbreviated form.

9. Trace And Order The Days

This worksheet is great because it combines two different activities in one and also gives students the opportunity to use safety scissors, which test their motor skills. This worksheet is suited to slightly older students who are capable of using scissors to cut out boxes.

Students firstly trace the days of the week before cutting out each box and placing the days of the week in order and sticking them onto the table provided on the worksheet. Have your students color in their completed table to make their work individual and more engaging.
