Quick Tip & Days of the Week Game

Anthony just wrote a quick tip on Facebook:

Quick tip! In my opinion now is the best time to do When! When! When! while we’re sandwiched between Halloween and Christmas, the graphics on the screen really work when it comes to the months!

Get your skates on though, you’ve only got till Wednesday to try it!

Margit also sent in a great game to use with When! When! When! and Days of the Week:

Teach the days with gestures for each day using the song.

1. Play charades, one person does the gesture, the kids shout out the day (and the other way round)
2. Have two kids play, one has to do the gesture one has to shout out the day.
3. The teacher (or another kid) stands in front of them and says:
“Today” “Tomorrow” “Yesterday” “In two days” “In three days” “Two days ago” or “Three days ago”
4. The kids have to do the gesture or the other kid shouts out the appropriate date. Who ever is first gets a point.

You can also do this with the Months of the year song for “last month, this month, next month”.

What do you think?

P.S. There are many more games on the days of the week page.

P.P.S. You might find a nice little update to months graphics in the VIP forum!

    Days and weeks, yesterday and tomorrow can be confusing for young kids so I select kids, name them; ‘yesterday’, tomorrow and relate that to their school timetable. They all stand in line then when I say yesterday, they change places (go back)- tomorrow (go forward). It works and it’s absorbed quickly.
