Days of the Week in Chinese for kids

From Monday to Friday we go to school, and on Saturday and Sunday, we play! Learning Chinese about the days of the week is an important skill our little ones must learn. Everyone needs to know about the days of the week when it comes to learning Chinese for kids!

But how can parents teach their children the days of the week in Chinese? A quick and fun way to introduce this topic is by having a daily activity known as ‘Day Time.’ This is a popular morning activity to learn Chinese for kids.  Toddlers practice and repeat the days of the week by singing. Singing is a great tool for parents since it is a quick and easy way to introduce concepts for kids plus the kids love it!

Children enjoy singing the same songs every day. They will learn the songs in no time and it is really easy to add new lyrics to the song.

Example: The Days of the Week

 

“There are seven days, there are seven days,

There are seven days in the week.

There are seven days, there are seven days,

There are seven days in the week.

Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday,

Thursday, Friday, Saturday.

 Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday,

Thursday, Friday, Saturday.”

 

Also, parents can explain more about the days by telling the stories behind their names.
