Why Do We Teach Children the Days?
Children need to learn the days so that they can understand the concept of time and how it affects their day-to-day lives. Knowing the concept of the days helps children plan out their upcoming week, as well as other activities that may take place during that time. It also helps them recognize patterns, such as when school or other activities take place on certain days. Knowing the days also helps children become more organized and better prepared for their day-to-day tasks.
