Teaching kids the days of the week doesn’t need to be a huge event.
Parents don’t need printables, charts, diagrams, or huge posters.
Sure, a calendar hanging on the wall helps. But parents can help their children learn the days of the week in less than a minute each day. Really.
It’s about creating a daily rhythm, especially at home and especially when kids are young. And that’s it.
Here’s the skinny. . .

Really simple, right?

Here’s to a happy, more organized and totally amazing 2013.
It doesn’t have to be difficult–parenting is hard enough! But every parent is capable of sneaking in a little bit of meaningful learning into their children’s every day. We can do it!
