Yesterday we learned how to create symbols to represent the months. Today we will
create symbols to represent the days of the week. Here are some suggestions.
Sunday - The sun, your church.
Monday - The moon, your school or workplace.
Tuesday - The number 2.
Wednesday - The hump of a camel, since Wednesday is often referred to as hump day
the middle of the work week.
Thursday - The number 3 as it sounds like third.
Friday - A frying pan or a TGIF sign.
Saturday - The planet Saturn with it's rings.
You may want to look at a calendar you have at home, pick a week, and insert these images into the block with the date in it. Spend about 15 minutes creating the images on your calendar and they will stick. It would also be helpful to rehearse the images you have for the months again.
Tomorrow I will teach you a rhythm of numbers to recite which will be an aid in memorizing dates. By next week you can have this entire year memorized.
