To the tune of "Oh My Darlin:"

"There are seven days,
there are seven days,
there are seven days in a week;
there are seven days,
there are seven days,
there are seven days in a week;
Sunday Monday,
Tuesday Wednesday,
Thursday Friday,
Saturday;
Sunday Monday,
Tuesday Wednesday,
Thursday Friday,
Saturday.

Days of the week Songs

Two additonal songs:

1) In the tune of "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" -

Sunday Monday
Tuesday too
Wednesday, Thursday
Just for you.
Friday, Saturday
That's the end.

Lets sing the days again.

Sunday, Monday, Tuesday
Wednesday
Thursday, Friday,
Saturday!


2) It's on one of Dr. Jean's CD's - the song is called "Today is Sunday" and each day of the week, the kids sing a food that they'll have on the day of the week - Teaches saying the days of the week backwards - I usually don't introduce this song until March/April/May!

Today is Sunday . . . Sunday chicken . . . Oh you lucky children . . .
But that's okay.

Today is Monday . . . Monday peanut butter . . . Sunday chicken . . . Oh you lucky children. . .
But that's okay.

Today is Tuesday . . . Tuesday snap beans . . Monday peanut butter . . Sunday chicken . . . Oh you lucky children . .
But that's okay.

Today is Wednesday . . Wednesday SOUUUUUUP. . . Tuesday snap beans. . Monday peanut butter. . .Sunday chicken. . .. Oh you lucky children. . .
But that's okay.

Today is Thursday. . . Thursday icecream. . . Wednesday SOOOOUP. . . Tuesday snap beans. . . Monday peanut butter. . . Sunday chicken . . . Oh you lucky children . . .
But that's okay.

Today is Friday. . . .Friday hot dogs . . . etc. etc.
But that's okay.

Today is Saturday. Saturday pizza . . . Friday hot dog. . . etc.etc
But that's okay.

That is almost exactly like Eric Carle's Book "Today is Monday". I love that book, each year we doa whole week of centers and make our own copies of the book. It the bag it has the score to sing the words, but I don't play instrument so we don't sing it.
Monady - Spaghetti
Tuesday - String Beans
Wednes day - Zoup
Thursday - Roast Beef
Friday - Fresh Fish
Saturday - Chicken
Sunday - Sundaes

And you always repeat "All you hungry children, come and eat it up." My kids love that part.

We sing one that is like Eric Carle's but it is a little funnier. This version is by Graham Clark. He is a genius!

Monday -- Meatballs (gulp, gulp)
Tuesday -- Soup (slurrrrrrrp)
Wednesday -- Carrots (crunch, crunch, crunch)
Thursday -- Old sneaker (pe-ew)
Friday -- Fried Eggs (sizzle)
Saturday -- spagetti (slurrp)
Sunday -- Chocolate Shake (pretend like it is too hard to suck up with a straw)

I used to teach Kindergarten (10 years). I had an old ballad that my Grandmother used to sing, I think it might have been a Carter family song, but I adapted it for school and the children made a days of the week booklet to go with it.

It went like this:

"On Sunday, I am happy, on Monday full of Joy, on Tuesday I have peace within that nothing can destroy. On Wednesday and on Thursday, I am walking with the light...Friday,......., and Saturday's always right!

We would substitute into the tune, their thoughts, like "On Sunday, I go to Grandma's, on Monday, I go to school, Tuesday is for having fun, and Wednesday is for ...." whatever they wanted to add, we let the creativity flow!

"Sing yourself smart" has a variety of public domain songs that help kids learn things . Days of the week, months, weather, vowels etc. the book and CD are WELL worth the money.

My students love to sing the Days of the Week using the "Clementine" melody mentioned in the first post because we add jumping to it. We begin singing very slowly and when we reach our particular day of the week, we jump in the air from a leapfrog position. Then we sing the song faster and faster until we can't keep up with the words. The students always laugh and it makes a great filler while we wait for the calendar person to put the date up,etc.

You teach K/1? So do I. We should share ideas. I just started this from a straight first a few weeks ago!

I also use the Clementine song.

Days of the Week

When I taught Kindergarten, everyday for calendar time we sang the days of the week. Everyday, a different student had the job for calendar. The student would get a pointer from the pointer jar and go over to the calendar and wait for the class to be quiet. Then they would begin by singing "Watch when I say, every week day. Here we go, don't say no. Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, let's all play." While the student says the days, they point to them on the calendar. Then the student says while pointing "Is today Sunday?" The class will either answer "Yes today is Sunday" or "No today is not Sunday." The student does this for each day of the week until they come to the correct day and the class will say "Yes, today is..." Then we sing "Today is______, Today is______" and look at the display I have up of Eric Carle's book "Today is Monday" and we sing it backwards...so if it's Thursday we sing "Today is Thursday, Today is Thursday. Thursday Roast Beef, Wednesday Zoup, Tuesday String Beans, Monday Spaghetti...All you hungry Children...Come and Eat it up, Come and Eat it up, Come...and...eat...it...up...Yu m, Yum!"

Then I have chart paper with the Daily News written on. There is apart of the Daily News that says Today is _______________. The calendar person will tell me what to write while the class helps with sounds of letters, etc. Unless the student can write on their own. I write the day, the month, the date, and the year.
