Yep, I know today is Wednesday, but my video of "Today Is Sunday" will be up on YouTube today.

This is an old camp song that's good for helping children learn the days of the week. And, yes, going forwards and backwards is actually good for the brain.

Write the days of the week on seven paper plates as shown. Let children draw the foods in the song or color the attached illustrations and glue them to the plates. Pass these out to seven children and let them stand in front of the room and hold up their plate at the appropriate time in the song.

Calendar Time
Every morning you can sing, "Today is day of the week. Day of the week (special like music, PE, art).  All you lucky children, well, that's O.K."

My Favorite Foods
Fold two sheets of paper in half and staple to make a book. The children can write a different day on each page and then draw their favorite foods. (The teacher who shared this idea years ago said one little boy who was a picky eater drew macaroni and cheese on every page!)
As many of you know, we live in Charleston, South Carolina.  We thank you for your thoughts and prayers.  We were blessed not to have any damage, but we are joining hands with our community to begin cleaning up.  Every cloud has a silver lining, and tragedy seems to bring us all closer together.  Thank you for lifting those whose lives and homes are damaged up in prayer.
