General Educational - Week Snake

Help your child to learn the days of the week.

Finished Week SnakeSlide the today arrow to the correct day.

There is space on the right hand side of the slider to put stickers with regular weekly events e.g. swimming on Saturday etc.

We have our Week Snake positioned near the front door so it can be easily seen every morning as we leave for school.

Use the Week Snake to work out the number of days to go before an event e.g. number of days until a Birthday or day out.
