SPELLING AND WRITING DAYS OF THE WEEK
The children, at this time, should have known the seven days that make one week. They should have also learnt the first, second and last days of the week. If they don’t know, they should be taught before going into spelling and writing the days of the week
This lesson is designed to improve the children’s spelling and writing skills. They will learn how to spell Monday to Friday.
You start by teaching them how to spell each day, after that they write it by themselves.
Since the children already know their letters, once they can spell the days of the week, writing it will not be an issue for them.
Take it bit by bit. When they learn How to spell Sunday and write it, before you move to Monday till you get to Saturday.
