And when, may I ask, is Monday. Soon I hope. Well, today is Friday. There’s Saturday, then Sunday, and the day after that is Monday. Goodness, how can you possibly keep track? I want to. I want to learn all the days of the week.
Days are all the same to me. But we’ll know when Neena is coming, when she has school, or a vacation Let’s learn the days of the week. Could prove very convenient for holidays. I always like to know when I’m getting a gift. Well, there’s a song I can use to teach you. It’s called a call and response song. I sing, then you sing what I just sang So we just follow you. Right, let’s try it. Monday, Tuesday Now you. Monday, Tuesday Wednesday, Thursday Friday, Saturday, Sunday Friday, Saturday, Sunday Seven days a week. Seven days a week. Good! Catchy. Let’s do it again. This time when I point to you, you sing the line. Oh, and Appu, can you give us some visuals? Read my mind for what the days of the week look like. Will do. Monday, Tuesday. Monday, Tuesday. Uh-oh. Wednesday, Thursday. Right-o. Wednesday, Thursday. Wednesday, Thursday. Friday, Saturday, Sunday. Oh, I am good. Friday, Saturday, Sunday.

And we’ll be back from my grandparents on Monday. But what about months of the year? Appu? Have you been reading my mind? Yes, and I want to learn the months, too. Well, I guess we have time. And there is another song… Oh please sing it. I love adding to my musical repertoire. Yes, let’s learn the months. Sing it. Ok, Appu. I can use your help again with a yearly calendar everyone can see.
