M for Monday, turn around, T for Tuesday, touch the ground, W for Wednesday, jump so high, T for Thursday, touch the sky, F for Friday, say hooray! S for Saturday, time to play, S for Sunday, clap your hands, It’s time to start all over again!


One that teaches days of the week…and fun foods to go with each one:

Monday, mango, start the week. Tuesday, tunafish, what a treat. Wednesday, watermelon,  red and cool, Thursday, turkey, that’s the rule, Friday, fresh bread, eat it hot, Saturday, slurpees, thanks a lot, Sunday, spaghetti, sun or rain, Then start the week all over again!
