Today is Monday
Children love Eric Carle's colorful illustrations and animal characters. In this book children will identify parts of the day (morning, afternoon, evening) and the days of the week. Read the story Today is Monday to the class. Have each of the days of the week writing on a separate piece of paper. Put food item on a card and laminate them.
