Information About Days of Week

The Days of Week children's song is a fun and active way for children to learn and remember the days of the week. The song repeats the names of the seven days several times, and children can snap their fingers, clap their hands, or stomp their feet along with the verses, switching to a different physical activity with each repetition of the first.

Did you ever wonder how their got to be seven days of the week? Or how the days got their names? The origin of the seven day week dates back thousands of years, to ancient cultures, and has some religious significance. Ancient Babylonians celebrated a holy day each seven days starting from the new moon.

The days of the week were named after the seven planets of classical astronomy, dating back to the Roman Empire. There was no English language back then, people used Latin. It's easier to sing the Days of Week song in English than Latin!

Days of the week, Days of the week, Days of the week *snap* *snap*.

(Children can snap fingers, clap hands, or click their tongues).
