# Measurement Resources

Our Days Of The Week Activities are an excellent way to help your students learn to identify, name and sequence the days of the week.

Download a variety of worksheets, puzzles and games to introduce Kindergarten, Preprimary and EYFS Students to early concepts of time.

Time is a tricky concept for students, it is hard to see and measure and it is usually managed by an adult.

Learning to tell time involves a lot more than reading the time on a clock, and this is something that is taught in the later years.

Time in the early years includes many important aspects such as:

• sequencing
• the duration or passage of time
• time past, present and time in the future

When teaching the Days of the Week your students need to learn:

• there are 7 days in a week
• the names of each of them
• the order in which they occur
• what the day is today, was yesterday and will be tomorrow
• link specific days to familiar events
• a week is a period of 7 days
• Monday – Friday are weekdays
• Saturday and Sunday are the weekend
• to be fluent in reciting the days of the week
• know what day comes before or after a named day
• to sequence everyday events in time order
• compare 2 events and decide which takes longer/shorter
• order 3 events from shortest to longest

Although there will be many opportunities to teach the concept of time incidentally and using a morning Calendar routine, the concept of time still needs to be purposefully taught in the early years.

We’ve put together a range of teaching time resources and days of the week activities to help you, so all you need to do is download them!
